Which is stronger: GTX 770 Crossfire vs. Single GTX 780

I am thinking about a new PC build and I need a high-end graphics card for 3D rendering for designs. I was considering either a 770 crossfire or just a single 780. The crossfire will be more expensive, but I was wondering which one will actually perform better. I might also overclock the GPUs for more performance.

The 770's will both have 2gb ram and the 780 will have 3gb ram. I include this because I might want to start using multiple monitors and extra ram is always good, but I am not sure how crossfiring will effect a multi-monitor setup.

So Crossfiring GTX 770's or just using a 780? Please help!


Thanks!

770's come in 4GB variety also

As for rendering, check w/ software manufacturer to see if program capable of utilizing two GFX cores




Thank You! But how will they hold up against each other if it was 3D rendering and 3D graphics design?

And sorry, I think of Crossfire and SLI as the same thing, because they really aren't that different, so I sometimes mix and math my words.

Unless the rendering/graphic program supports an SLI / Crossfire configuration the GTX 780 would be better for that purpose.

Gaming wise the GTX 770 SLI setup is easily the winner from a purely performance stand point (though more power, more heat, more noise, etc).

I math words too,

I'd take 770's but most people prefer a single stronger card, i have no clue about 3d rendering but it probably depends on if the program supports SLI
