This may be a noob question but could I oc the gtx 770 to get more fps then a gtx 780? I really don't want to spend the extra $ and I play on a 1080p montior with Crysis 3 on max. So what gpu should I get? I am also considering a 7970 ghz but I never got a amd gpu so I'm not sure.

ALSO, does the asrock extreme z87 6 come with wi-fi and bluetooh? If not, any good z87 mobo's that do?

I would say that the 780 would be a lot better still, newer architecture along with more RAM, steam processors etc

Although, at 1080p I'm pretty sure a 770 would more than suffice for most games though the 770 would not give you 60fps on max in Crysis 3, the 780 MIGHT but I am really not sure.

Whether or not the 780 is worth the extra dollar is up to you.

Its a bit of a pointless comparison because the 780 overclocks too, and alot better at that.

The GTX 770 and GTX 780 do not use the same chipset. The GTX 770 is a refined GTX 680 (literally). The GTX 780 uses the Titan chipset which is a totally different GPU. Simply overclocking a GTX 770 (even heavily) will not get you 780 performance.

The question is whether the performance gain, and the resolution you play at, is worth $250 more. Especially at 1080p the GTX 780 probably does not make much sense. Not unless you just have $650 you want to throw away.

EDIT: If Crysis 3 is the most important thing then the GTX 780 is the better option. It is way more than you need for just about any other game though!

Even a 780 cannot max out Crysis @1080p with acceptable frame rates, look at SLI or GTX 690!

Yes it can, all ultra with 2x SSAA provides a pretty solid 50+FPS.

Nope even with my SLI max setting 2X SMAA I get major dips here and there, and SLI 680>GTX 780 big time!

Thats at 1200p, but I guess you are right, I haven't used by card not overclocked so I didn't know.

Off-Topic: I have a GTX 590 OC'ed with 3GB of VRAM and an i7-3770K in my current build, and I get a stable 36-60 (VSync) FPS in Crysis 3 at the highest settings possible in 1080p, except the antialias is a setting lower than the highest possible setting. :lol: 

But, on-topic, jerreece is probably your best answer.
