GTX 760 SLI vs GTX 770 vs [Whatever Other Suggested Card]

Hello All!

Specs:
-Intel Core i5-4670K 3.4GHz Quad-Core Processor w/ Hyper 212+
-MSI Z87-G45 Gaming ATX LGA1150 Motherboard
- NZXT Phantom White Case
- PSU can run SLI (Have not pulled trigger, but have many lined up that can support SLI/Crossfire)

Any more information needed, just ask.


I am wondering in the Long-run which would be more cost-effective, as well as very efficient.. GTX 760 SLI or a single GTX 770, or perhaps any other recommended card?

I will be running 1920x1080 single (or possbile future double) monitor setup with intent on Max/near max settings.

Best solution

If you are playing on a 1920x1080 60Hz monitor, then 770 is plenty. It'll max out all games.

One GPU is preferable. Less issues, lower cost, less heat, less power needed...dual GPUs is good for gaming on 3 monitors.

I love the GTX 760's in SLI idea, but I prefer the idea of getting a single GTX 770 and leaving the SLI option open for the future.

People always say get the single card and leave SLI option for the future. But when that time comes, a better card comes out for the same price or even less and you'd get that single card instead. So go for SLI right now and skip a generation. SLI is the best bang for buck performance you can get.

I agree with that. If you are going to SLI, have a plan to do it with a newly launched card, and within 6 months of getting the 1st one.

I won't disagree with last two statements. If you are going to go SLI/Crossfire then do it sooner than later. If you wait a year or more, you surely can find a better GPU at a great price and don't need to buy a bigger PSU to run it.

When it comes to SLI/Crossfire I wouldn't SLI/Crossfire with a lower end GPU like the 7850. You're better off with 1x770 then 2x7850. No microstuttering.

... And at this point, you wouldn't even consider Crossfire at all. AMD promised their Crossfire frame pacing driver fix "by the end of July", and well, they only have a few hours left to meet that deadline.

I think every gamer would shoot their self in the head if AMD card's were the last video cards on the planet!!!!! Tho Nvidia have made some bad driver's lately,
SLI for the WIN bud, the only thing you'd want is a 120+GHz monitor

Sound reasoning .... but don't wait too long ..... soon after the new generation comes out, new ones can get hard to find.

they need to finish off this one first, So that mean's releasing the 760Ti's the 750 ti's and the long awaited 790's

I thought Nvidia was skipping the "ti" for the 760ti this year. If Nvidia does have a "ti" I'd expect it to be lower than a 760.

NVIDIA GeForce Kepler Lineup To Be Expanded in 2H 2013

While there’s limited information regarding what new GeForce Kepler cards would be introduced but this could be NVIDIA’s response to the upcoming Hawaii GPU from AMD. According to Videocardz, the upcoming GeForce Kepler based graphic cards would be based on the GK104, GK106 and GK208 architectures which probably mean more entry to mid-range cards. These are probably going to turn up as the GeForce GTX 750Ti, GTX 750, and the various other boost cards we got to see with the GeForce Kepler 600 series lineup.
