    And I'm wondering if you're joking. There's no way that a single GTX 770 can be better than two 7970's.
  2. Understood .. But I was wondering.. If possible,should I get x2 GTX 770 SLI instead of 7970 CFX?
  3. If you need more muscle than a GTX770 can provide (gaming above 1080p or just for future-proofing) then definitely SLI GTX770s would be a better option than Crossfire 7970s. But if not, stick to a single GTX770. You can always add in a second in the future once prices have dropped if you need more performance in future games.
  4. eh.. Well yea .. The problem is that, I kinda got hooked on the Crysis series .. And I have no intention on playing it any lower than very high ... But on 1080p .. So again .. Should I do SLI?
  5. Ah I'm the same :-) I just did Crysis 3 maxed. I have an EVGA GTX670 FTW (which I love - delivers same framerates as a stock GTX680) and it managed at 1080p, 2x SMAA and ultra. Though I think if the performance had been even slightly lower I'd have started dropping settings. I haven't tried a framerate counter on it, but I'd estimate framerates mostly in the 30s, and 40-60fps in less demanding areas. Based on my experience, I'd advise a GTX770 for these settings. A GTX780 might be a bit excessive - hard to justify that price for a fairly minor performance gain.

    U play with 30-40 FPS ? rly bro ?
  7. In Crysis 3 or in general? In Crysis 3 like I said I didn't use a counter so I can't say for sure. In general, it probably is 40fps average and 30fps min that I'd consider smooth. Which is widely considered the target for playable gameplay (read some reviews/articles if you don't believe me). Of course there are those who think they have Robocop-level reactions and claim to need a constant 60fps. But whatever - I won't argue with those people, they can believe what they want :-)
