GTX 680 SC vs GTX 770 vs GTX 660 non ti SLI.

Hey guys.

I have a quick question. Firstly, before I begin, I want to say that I won't be upgrading my computer or any parts after this. I won't be future buying a new graphics card or whatever.

So I have a choice of either GTX 680 SuperClocked, GTX 770 stock or GTX 660 non ti SLI.

I have seen that the 660 SLI is extremely good and runs more FPS in games like BF3 and Crysis. I will mostly be playing battlefield 3, far cry 3, assassins creed 3. I want to know which one is the best GPU which won't give stuttering or noticeable stuttering. I have heard the SLI has stuttering in games every 5 minutes or so and sometimes can have it contineously which I really don't want. The 660's are a lot cheaper than the other two cards but I would rather go with the better card which won't stutter and produce great FPS. I also want to know if the EVGA SuperClocked GTX 680 is better than the stock GTX 770?

Please, any help will be massively appreciated.

Thanks a lot in advance!

  1. If possible, single card is always the best. Less heat, less room, less power and less problems with games, drivers, etc, than SLI/crossfire.

    Does your current motherboard support SLI in a decent fashion, and by that I mean, do the 2 PCIe slots still get 16x or at least 16x and 8x. A lot of "SLI/Crossfire" motherboards sort of cheap out and the 2nd slot only runs at 4x.

    Can your PSU handle 2 660's?

    Can you case fit them, and do you have good enough cooling?
  2. 680 vs 770. 770 is slightly better than 680 BUT the 680 is CHEAPER than the 770 for like 100$ then i would go for the 680. Price wise. :)

    Yes, the case, the PSU and the motherboard all support SLI in the best possible way. It's a top end z77 motherboard. I can't remember the exact name of it. I just want to know if the 660 will stutter and I don't mind waiting a week or two for driver updates for bf4 when it comes out. I am mostly looking at the 770 now since it's better

    I cant understand people saying "2 760s can beat the titan."
    Yeah it can beat it BUT Its not a good Matchup (because the TITAN is priced wrongly IMO)

    Its completely different. Some Games utilizes SLI but some dont.

    If you play a game doesnt support SLI. Your 760s will be like 1 760.

    AND IT IS THE BEST TO RUN A SINGLE CARD THAN 2 CARDS.

    What about the Superclocked 680? The money isn't much different in the UK. It's about $30 difference in the UK which isn't an issue for me. I just want to know which is better hehe.
