760 4GB vs 770 2GB vs 780 3GB

Between the above cards, is there much diffference? I plan to drive a seiki 4k 39 inch tv so I think VRAM Matters. Also are there any cards that have the green "NVIDIA GTX" or GEFORCE GTX" logos on the side? I really want my build to look nice. Any suggestions?

  1. Honestly with a screen of that resolution I would not suggest anything lower than a GTX Titan if you plan on gaming, with its 6GB VRAM.
  2. 780 3GB = 99% BEAST(I don't like it but right now 100% is titan)
    770 4GB = 92% BEAST
    770 2GB = ?% BEAST AT 4K
    760 4GB = 80% BEAST
  3. well best p/p would be asus hd 7970 for ~300$ it has 3gb vram, performance is similar to gtx 770,
    generaly slightly better in higher resolutions. but it doesnt have the nvidia logo xD.

    3gb vram is enough for 4k resolution. you dont need titan

    the reference design of gtx 770 and gtx 780 have the nvidia logo on it.

    do you want to play on 4k screen ?
  4. At 4k resolution most of those cards will handle multimedia purposes fine. However, for gaming you would need AT LEAST 2 770 with 3GB or more of VRam. Preferably 2 780s if you can afford it.
  5. or just turn down some settings and you will be fine

    If he wants to game at that resolution I think the idea is to do it WITHOUT turning settings down.
  7. Nope, don't really want to game with this system. It was more intended for photoshop, premiere pro, and after effects work. If I want to game I'll use my backup 1080p monitor :). I went with NVIDIA because of CUDA, and how much it will help. Currently, even the 760 4GB is pushing it, but if I need, I repeat absolutely NEED to upgrade I will try.
  8. Have you checked to see if your software favors Cuda VS. AMD's architecture? Some software heavily favors AMD over Nvidia. However, for general purposes I say the 760 4GB is fine. Heavy rendering may be a bit much though.
  9. Yeah, its mostly CUDA optimized software from Adobe.
  10. Does the Adobe software like that support Multi-GPUs? If so then I would say go for 2 760 4GBs. That would give you more than enough memory bandwidth and quite a bit more bang for you buck.
  11. Not sure if I want to SLI - some apps I will be using don't support it - Like Davinci Resolve Lite.

    If he isn't going to be gaming at that resolution I really don't see a point for him to SLI.. for what he has stated the system is for the single 760 4gb should be fine.

    I'm not sure on how much more difficult rendering is at 4k resolutions compared 1080p. If a single is fine, then good.

    However, adding two GPUs won't hurt. It'll only speed the process up.
  14. I've heard that when two cards are in SLI, and one cannot be used, the other runs more slowly than one that is not in sli.
  15. Also, would the best option just be a single 770 4gb?

    The card that is not used will just sit in idle mode and will have no effect on the card that is being used, it will not slow it down.

    Thanks for the clarification
  18. a gtx 690 would definitely get you through it is two gtx 680 in one card but is not sli so it would be great for rendering, but i would recommend getting the 4gb eddition and it will work just fine in a single pci express 3.0
  19. of course it is sli. its just that both cards are crammed onto a single board. this is IMO thw worst king of SLI...

    get a 4GB 760, or a 4GB 770, depending on how demanding your work is, and whether the green logo on the ref cooler is a must to you. (only 770 and up have that)
