Hello Everyone,

Need some help deciding which one the three graphics cards above would be best for running a single 1440p Monitor. Would like to play modern games with some good FPS, Battlefield 4, etc.
Trying to build a rig by the end of the year. Budget is 2300, Heres the main components on my build so far, please let me know what you think; Also, having someone else build it, I honestly don't have time to build myself, so of course consider prices being higher.

Corsair Obsidian Series 750D

i7-4820K Quad-Core

16GB DDR3/1866MHz

GIGABYTE X79-UP4 Intel X79

750 Watts - Corsair PLUS GOLD

OS: Microsoft® Windows 7 Professional

If you afford two 780's in sli thats the route to go.... other wise I would go for two 770's in SLI... Im in the same boat but I use AMD... so I have to either go with one 780 or two 760's or two 770's (if I can afford that)...

Yea 780's would be a bit too expensive for me. Would one 780 work?
For SLI 770's would 4gb or 2gb work? I'm seeing mixed reviews on whether a 4gb would be worth it.
How to ask for a build.
Hello Friends and builders , I have seen that many forum members ask for builds , but don't mention what they want , prefer , etc. This causes other forum members to ask those questions turn by turn , making the thread a very lengthy thread and... See full content

Forget about all of those cards. Get Crossfire 3gb 280x's for $600 (will outperform SLI 760's, single 770, and 780).

Ya two 780's is a bit exp... but two 760's 2Gb in SLI beat a 780 3Gb barely. I would guess since if you got two 760's at 4Gb each that you would blow the 780 out of the water. As Crossfire support on the board too... there is more trouble with Crossfire right now due to bugs and glitch's with drivers that I wouldn't suggest it.

The 280X is a 7970... He'd be spending extra money for 1-2FPS difference ; he needs a pair of 7970s.

Yes, I know the 280x is a re-branded 7970. However, they're the same price as the 7970 with higher clocks (totally worth it).
