I was wanting to know what you all thought was the better deal. The 770 or the 780. I have been debating between them. The price is not a huge deal but I do not want to spend more money then I have to.

More about : gtx 770 gtx 780

gtx 770, just like the 670 vs 680 the gtx 780 isn't worth the extra money if you're gaming on 1 monitor.

780 has higher performance ; 770 has better performance per dollar.....

780 has 14% more performance ... at 1920 x 1080

770 has 29% more performance per dollar ... at 1920 x 1080

Id invest in twin 770s before id do a single 780

They'll both do you good. While I'd love to say go for the 780, a 770 isn't far behind. Especially not in SLI.

It's rarely the best choice to get the most high end card.

the 770 is a good value card for performance. the 780 is there if you believe several games will go past 2gb vram in the future(few games do, whether you think more will come is up for interpretation)

I think the 780 was also the way to go if you go for resolutions higher than 1920 x 1080 (Full HD)

At least in this generation i'd lean more towards the 780 if you have the money. Last generation the 680 and the 670 were quite close with the same gk104 slightly disabled on the 670 (granted they were closer in price too). At least with the 780 you're getting closer to a titan with the gk110 vs the old gk104 770 (on steroids).

I'd say this generation of cards will be divided more into the "Do I get a 780 or a Titan" and a "Do I get a 760ti or a 770". Granted the 760ti isn't released yet... but that is where i'm thinking this is headed.

For your case in the don't wanna spend more money then I have to. You might want to see what a 760ti brings to the table and decide between that or a 770. Hope this helps!

The 780 is overpriced right now. 770 is probably your best bet. Or a 7970 if you don't have any beef with AMD (Performs about the same as the 770 and comes with four free games).

Yeah he's right. If you're not super loyal to Nvidia the 7970 with the game bundle really makes it hard not to pick it up. Just a great value if you don't already own those games.

Only problem with AMD is that PhysX is really important to me.

Yeah I enjoy the Physx on the games I play with it so I don't blame you. I stand by my original answer then lol.

iv just bought a windforce 770 paired with my 930@ 4.2 and in the hundreds most of the time with battlefield 3 with all on ultra at 1920 1080.. oh and it overclocks like a dream.. which pulls it closer to the 780.. I think I made the best choice as I thought of the 780.. save ur money pal..

Well you still get PhysX. Just not advanced PhysX.

I have a GTX680 (Asus DC2T) and for many games I disable or run at lower settings if it's an option. The problem is that even with my great card I often can't hit 60FPS with full quality settings and also use PHYSX (1920x1080).

So I have to make a choice:
1) Drop below 60FPS?
2) Lower OTHER quality settings (like AA, Shadows etc.)?
3) Lower or drop PhysX?

In some games PhysX either offers little or the eye-candy doesn't even quite fit in with the other visuals.

Batman Arkham City:
For those that don't know, it's best to disable both PhysX and DX11. Neither feature has been programmed well and it causes stuttering especially during grappling/gliding. DX11 is barely noticeable visually and PhysX adds a little eye-candy that causes a big performance hit that's just not worth it.

I upgraded and went for an i7 4770k along with the Asus DirectCUii gtx780 OC the 780 is slightly overclocked by Asus and will overclock more but I have no need at the moment to overclock my cpu or gpu at this time. the 770 will get to near speed of the factory 780 but it is older tech if you have the money opt for the 780 or wait a while until the price drops then get one I played battlefield 3 with everything turned up to the max and it pulls 107 FPS according to the console benchmark I have not found a game yet that will batter my 780 even crisis 3 plays like a dream with max settings and as we all know crisis games wrecks high end game systems.

You probably know this, but if you turn VSYNC OFF to run uncapped you'll get screen tearing and run your system much hotter/noisier than need be.

I couldn't tell if you used VSYNC or not. I always do.

Another issue is the new Adaptive VSYNC (VSYNC auto turns off below refresh rate to avoid resynch to half-refresh and stutter issue). Great idea except the problem is that now pre-rendered cut-scenes now have screen tearing (because VSYNC is being forced off). Sigh.
