Hello, I'am going to build a gaming computer. But I don't know if I should go for the titan, gtx 770 sli or a gtx 780. How much performance in % do i get with gtx 770 sli then a titan will? gtx 770sli will cost me 999 dollars and the titan will cost me 1266 dollars. But the gtx 780 will cost me 850 dollars. What will be the best? How many more fps in avarage will i get with gtx 770sli then one gtx 780 or one gtx titan?

A single card will be most reliable, especially in the newest games, but the outright preformance of 770 SLI can't be denied...

But just answer, what will be best? gtx 770sli for bf4 or gtx titan? http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MPMsg8qqva0 in this video gtx 770 sli outperforms gtx titan.

How many monitors, and what resolution? If you will be playing on a single 1920x1080 monitor, a single GTX770 should be sufficient, unless it is a 120Hz 3D monitor.

well SLI 770 is 40% more powerful than a titan at 80% of the price.

For the best value for performance, SLI 770 by a LONG shot.

But to be honest bro, a 770 is enough to max any game even on a 144hz 1080p monitor like the one i'm using.

I will probably buy a 144hz benq. Should I buy a gtx 770 and maybe after a half year buy a new gtx 770 and maybe it dropped in price? Will gtx 770 drop in price after a half year?

Well if you're only going to use one monitor, one is more than enough to max any games.

I really suggest my Asus VG248QE over a Benq . It has better specs, benq is only 120hz with 2 ms. Whereas the Asus is a lot cheaper and it's 144hz with 1 ms.

I would just buy one Windforce GTX 770 for now, maybe add one more later if i need to. That's what i'm doing anyways

For one monitor, I would recommend a GTX 780. GTX 770 SLI may be stronger but not necessary for a single monitor. It adds more heat and can cause more resolution & driver issues. A GTX 780 is very close to Titan-performance level. Just shy by a few percentages. And you don't need Titan's 6GB VRAM on a single monitor. So the GTX 780 is the better buy in this case.

What do you think about this monitor? BenQ 24" 3D LED XL2411T -Demo. It will cost me 100 dollars less then your screen. It got 1ms btw.

Well, I will probably get one more monitor to Christmas. Then I will have 2. Do you think this screen is good? BenQ 24" 3D LED XL2411T -Demo

Well it's an LED mate. If i were to go for anything non 120hz+, I would at least go for an IPS panel one.

Because the way i think about it, is either you get the advantages of ultra smoothness and responsiveness of a 120hz+.

Or you get the great picture quality of an IPS panel.

I just choose the 120hz+ because it's better suited for gaming. I would at least get an IPS if you are trying to get a non 120hz monitor. Maybe an Asus 239H-P

Also isn't the XL2411T like 230 pounds?

No, the XL2411T is 246 pounds while your screen costs 268. So what would you choosen?

1 monitor at 1080p, a 7950 would pretty much max you out.

-if you insist on spending the money 1 770 is all you need. SLi 770s, Titan, 780 are all serious overkill for your planned resolution and uses

well my screen cost 266$. I think 246 pounds is around 380$!!

also, i didn't see anyone in the US selling that Benq. I would still go with the Asus though, because the Asus is 144hz instead of 120hz. Also, the reviews for the Asus is great.

Ingtar33, i thought a 7950 will only max most games??? I thought 7950 won't max games like crisis 3 and a few other really demanding titles. I would just get a 770 for future proof, because it'll be able to max everything for the next 1-2 years.

Crysis3 is not most games. Its about 2-4 years in advance of any tech requirements you'll see on most games. That said, a hd7950 will play Crysis3 on its highest settings and 1080p with about 25-28FPS... So yes... since you're requesting playing crysis flawlessly, i would suggest 2 770s... as neither the titan or the 780 will manage that requirement either (but 2 770s should)

Can I see difference between 90fps and 130fps? And I want a computer that can atleast have in most games 60+ fps in 3-4 years.

if you're asking that question why did you spend all that cash on a 120mhz monitor? I don't know if you'll see the difference. I can only tell the difference in framerate over 25fps in 2 situations...
1, poor frame pacing,
2, if they're next to eachother

Generally speaking 25fps seems to be the min framerate needed to look silky smooth if the frames are paced consistently. The difference is imperceptible unless you're comparing them side by side. Oh i know, many people here will say they can tell the difference. I agree... it's very possible to tell the difference. the thing is, it's unlikely you will unless you're swapping between resolutions and showing yourself the difference. If frame pacing is smooth and if you never see the other options it will look smooth as silk to your eyes no matter what fps you're playing at over 25fps.

I would suggest you get yourself a 780... it should play crysis 3 just fine (at around 50-55fps) on very high at 1080p. That way you don't deal with the microstuttering you get from SLi... or the heat and noise from it... and if down the road you need more gpu power, you can get another 780 to SLi it.

I DID just answer. 770SLI is most powerful, but won't work best in all games, especially new games.

I would personally run SLI 780's. A single 780 will play most games on high to ultra high settings for a good while, depends on what you're playing. By that time, the 780 will drop even more, and I would just slap a second one in there for SLI for roughly a 20-50% increase (depends on the GPU and/or the game itself). Also, using SLI or Crossfire (AMD) will drop your PCIe speeds the more cards you install. Currently, the Z77, which is what I use, will still run dual x8's which is more than enough to keep up with graphics cards, so don't let the smaller number fool you. The third is when you get a x8/x8/x4, which the x4 may produce a slight decrease of the desired speed. The other best chipset option is the X79 which is the 2011 socket, which it stupidly expensive that can run SLI much more effortlessly, not sure on how many lanes exactly, and I don't want to give you false information, I recommend looking into that if you have not purchased a motherboard. And there may be more chipsets offering other SLI/Crossfire abilities, but the Z77 I am most familiar with because I own one, and I've came across X79's, but unfortunately I don't know enough about it, but it's all about personal preference, that's the fun of building a PC.

If you want the biggest and baddest rig that will play the highest setting games for years and years, given you have the money, go with triple Titan's, which is actually over-killing it.

Hope that was helpful. My highest preference in price/performance, would be to run SLI 780's ($650/each roughly), which is what I am currently in the making of doing myself.

I'am waiting for r9 290x and maybe buy it in crossfire. Depends on the price. But which motherboard should I get for r9 290x to get most performance out of both cards?

The biggest thing in running dual GPU's is knowing if your motherboard will support running 2 at x8/x8 minimum. Most come with at least x16 for a single GPU or x8/x8 but it all depends on the chipset. And unfortunately I do not know enough about AMD products to tell you what the best option would be. I've been more of an NVIDIA/Intel kind of person because I feel they make the better, more reliable product. The best chipset I recommend for the money would be the Z77 because it's affordable, but unfortunately, that chipset is coming to it's end as it's end-of-life was due for mid-2013, but has surprisingly held strong still today. But that's just how computer part manufacturer's make their money, by swapping it out every so years, but they need a professionally-tested chipset to fall back on.

Hope that solves any questions you may have
