  1. Are you playing any games where you are not getting 60FPS?
  2. What are the rest of the current/planned specs ?
    IMO Rome2 is a CPU bound game equally , so get a higher end CPU like the i7-4770K , or if possible the 4930K. That will solve the CPU bottleneck. As for the GPU , the GTX 780 HoF will be my pick. Its good enough for Extreme Level settings. That GPU competes the GTX Titan ( which still sells on the 100$ tag ) Also as of RAM , get 8GB-12GB of RAM. Rest og the stuff can be anything as long as its compatible.
    If you could provide a budget , I would provide you a rig for that money. Also mention accessories if any needed , as long as the're in the budget.
  3. I gotta i7 2600k oc 4.4ghz it's ok I don't really fancy getting a new CPU/motherboard. I'm getting about 40-50fps now with everything on max apart from rome
  4. With a single GTX 770 ? Or what GPU are you using ?
    What are the FPS on Rome 2 ?
  5. With my single gtx770 ATM I'm getting anything from 60 to 12 fps it's mental was hoping sli would fix that ?
  6. 12 FPS ? whats your RAM ? 8-12GB should be needed. Also what settings and what resolution are you using ?
  7. 12gb vengence got the settings mostly high/ultra
  8. A guy I work with told me he had issues with his titan @ 1080P but there is a fix, it is an issue with the game not the GPU power

    Would the i5 Haswell CPU work as well?
  10. ^ The i5-4670/4670K will be able to let those beasts go to their full potential. The i5-4570 will also be good.
    Depends on what your budget is. But I'd say if you have enough for two GTX 770s or even one , the 4670K is the best choice.
    P.S - Have a look at thr R9-290X and GTX 780 too. They are two good GPUs as well.
  11. Think I'm going to wait till sli is supported in rome 2 the get another card with a 750watt psu then instead of buying a new pc later upgrade my motherboard and CPU
