Hi!

I am upgrading my GTX 590 to SLI GTX 770's (4GB) but I'm not sure which ones to get.

All advices are much appreciated. Thanks :) 

More about : 770 4gb

Hello.
MSI and Gigabyte have excelllent coolers plus a nice o/c.
Gigabyte GV-N770OC-4GD
MSI N770 TF 4GD5/OC
But at 7th November Nvidia will release 780ti (full GK110 2880cores and 3GB 336Gb/s VRAM) which will probably have the same performance as GTX690 (according to early benchmarks at chiphell). With an MSRP of $699. Since 2 GTX770 4GB will cost $749-$799 wouldn't you like to wait and maybe take a single GTX780ti?

This Gigabyte is very cheap for a 4GB card. link


Hi! Thanks for the reply.
Do you think this upgrade is worth all the money?
I just want to know the best 4GB 770's out there not the cheapest. Don't get me wrong thanks for the recommendation but I want to make my build as future proof as I can. Thank you.

Hi! Thanks for the reply.

Actually this was my second option. But I thought it wouldn't be a good idea to spend all that money on just one GPU since maxwell is around the corner. What would you do in this situation?

Thanks.

Well if you will not go for dual GTX770 and you want to wait for 4-5 months then you don't have to change your GTX590 at all.
As I said before Nvidia planned Maxwell for 2014Q1 so my best guess is around February or March...

In the end GTX590 is the same with GTX770 so I wouldn't change it and I would wait for Maxwell. (ps: I am waiting for the maxwell GM110 based (I hope) GTX870 chip in order to upgrade my GTX570 :p )

What about this?

Do you think I should get this one or wait for maxwell? Here goes another dilemma... LOL.

This totally changed my mind actually. LOL


Well I told you that it would be a beast :p . Wait for 7th november.
Compare it with your GTX590 and if you find the difference enough for $699, then go for it. (ofc you will earn less heat noise and no dual GPU problems :) )

Thank you so much for your replies :)  I'll wait for the non reference coolers for the 780Ti. Or the 6GB version for a future proof build.

There are rumors for 3GB 6GB and... 12GB!!! VRAM (I guess this will be for triple SLI versions that can do 3x 4K monitors :p ).


The reference to be honest doesn't seem to be bad either...

That GTX 780 Ti looks nice. The best strategy will be to wait a little bit after November 7th for the custom models to be released. As for Maxwell, you probably won't want to be one of those who get one right after its release. As we're seeing with Kepler, the best models and best prices don't come along until well after the initial release of a new generation. Here a year and a half after the initial release of the GTX 680 we are finally seeing the release of the full GK110 chip and finally realizing the full potential that Nvidia has been holding back in its flagship GPU for well over a year. Similarly, the best Maxwell cards on the smaller 20 nm process won't be seen until at least the second half of 2014, if not much later.

I agree the reference looks very good (The sexiest looking one imo :)  but I still want to wait for the non reference designs. (Mainly for cooling and noise factor. Which leads to much better OC potential.)

GeForce 800 series “Maxwell” in Q1 2014
Quote:

Just as I told you in my previous posts, NVIDIA will launch next series sooner than expected. I was told by one of the manufacturers that NVIDIA will release Maxwell series in early 2014. It is expected that GeForce 800 series will arrive in the first quarter of 2014, somewhere between February and March. What it basically means is that the chances for 20nm process are low. Of course NVIDIA could already have first 20nm samples sooner than that, but TSMC will not be ready for mass production till June 2014. Thus, unless my source is wrong the first Maxwell GPUs will not be made in 20nm fabrication process, but if they are expect huge graphics cards shortage and more paper-launches.

So we might have Maxwell 2014Q1 at store but that means maxwell could be 28nm...

If it's not going to be 20nm then we shouldn't expect a big jump from 700 series to 800 series.

I'll just skip Maxwell architecture and wait for Volta...

Btw: I heard second half of the Maxwell series will be 20nm but you know what they say about rumours...

This describes the route I'm going to take.
