Hey Guys!

Title says it all! Will be either getting a pair of EVGA ACX GX 770 Classified (4GB) cards or one GTX 780 ti (6GB when it's released) to go with an Intel Core i7 4930k. Tell me what you think I should get!

EDIT: Sorry forgot to mention: I will be Gaming @ 1440p and maybe 5860 or whatever the 3 way 1080p monitor resolution is, Capturing with Shadowplay, and Editing Full HD Video.

Thanks guys!

Well it depends. The 770's will give you better performance, however the 780 ti will leave room for future upgrades and will still be more than sufficient to play any game u could want maxed out at 1440p So yeah overall, 770's = more power but the 780 will be better in the long run due to the ability to sli being left open, and its a single card. What do you need the card for might i ask?

I would go with just a single 780, it will play anything you throw at it at a decent price and you could always get another one later if need be.
If you are on a single 1080 monitor the 780 will max out any game. Sure the 2 x 770 SLI is a beast of a set up, but a 780 will be more than enough and will cost you less.

To go nvidia surround (3 monitors) you will absolutely need the 2way 780

I know this is a slightly old thread, but for anyone else reading this or if you havent yet decided, you will get better bang for buck going for a GK110-based card (780, 780ti, Titan) for 1440p or 2160p (4k), but at 1080p the GK104 chip (every other high-end 6xx or 7xx series card) performs better per $. So, if you are doing the 1 monitor setup, go for the 780ti, or if you are doing the three-way 1080p, the dual 770s might be better, but it really depends on the game. Both are brilliant setups and neither will disappoint you.

Well, I got time because I'm using just a GTX 660 until my B-day next in April next year, hopefully we'll see an 8xx card that will do both jobs!

780ti & if the need comes for more power buy another 780ti. Or if you open to amd I suggest another alternative cheaper & a good gpu.... r9 290x

dont count on it, unless NV decide to accelerate their production line, which is a possibility, we usually see new generations from Intel and NV in May-June
also, a serious consideration for someone gaming at that kind of resolution is going ATI, for example the r9 290x. they tend to do multi-monitor and ultra-high def better than NVidia, although NVidia are catching up fast

Well, I was really into the ShadowPlay and Shield features of NVidia, however AMD is still an option!

Not sure how this will affect things, but if you went with the 770s,

you'd also get another gig of VRam,

If you plan to ever use Nvidia surround, with 3 monitors this may be something to make the 770's more appealing.

the 770s, are 4 gb cards instead of the 780's 3 gb, personaly I dont under stand, with 5k resolutions coming, why they would not have put more ram on the 780's

I couldn't agree more! If there were some 6 GB 780 ti, I would have already bought it! I don't want to spend 700 bucks on a card to be bottle necked by VRAM within the next generation of games!

Im also in the same conundrum. .. im building new rig and can't decide whether to go for a the evga 770 acx 4gb in sli or one 780ti ... if I go with the ti im not sure when I'd be buying another or if I could even justify the 1400$ + just in graphics cards...

To be honest with you, unless you have a need for the power now, I'd wait for the 800 series cards from NVidia. I know that they're not supposed to be a huge step up, but you can count on getting better performance from an 870 than a 770, and they are coming out early next year...

At the moment where i live i can get two of these classified 770's for cheaper then a single 780 so considering i play on 3 monitors i will get two of the 770's.

Also regarding the 8xx cards. The price of the 770's may go down a bit and if not the 870's will likely be more expensive so if i where to wait for them i might save some money whichever way i go.

2x 770's will be about the same price as a 780Ti. But 2x 770's will give you about 30% more FPS than a 780Ti in 1080p. The 780Ti will use less power than 2x 770's. Will you have to upgrade your PSU? Are you investing for 4K gaming? If so, at the moment, 780 TI's would be the way to go. But I've got 2x 670's and don't plan on looking at 4K for at least 5 years. Even so, 2 x 770's will play 4K in medium settings.

So if it was me, and the price was right, I'd get 2 x 770's. You will find better discounts for 770's than 780Ti's on eBay.

Sorry if its late, but if you're going to be capturing game footage you're going to want a NVidia card for certain, just because of the fact Shadowplay passively records footage and stores it for an hour, so say you're not running any capture software and something amazing happens, then Shadowplay would of caught it all for you. I would go 780ti personally, because of the issues that can be cause by SLI such as heat etc.. But if you have good cooling, then go for the 770's because who doesn't like more power?

I'm on the bridge about that as well,
I am leaning on getting a evga SC gtx 780 ti just to be more future proof. But on the other hand i didnt want to waste my existing 770 (although not classified editions like yours).
If u dont already have a large power supply, try to save up for the 780ti =P Or hope for a price drop. Lets face it paying 700 bucks for a single piece of hardware is not easy.

I would use the 770 as Dedicated PhysX if things are going that way.

I really want a 6Gb card as Watchdogs judders slightly at Ultra/Max everything at 1080p on my i7 Haswell 780 16Gb Platinum rig.

So I plan to get a 6Gb card and use the 780 for PhysX for games due out in a few years.

That said; I think most gmaes for now will be designed for the PS4/X-Box-One and PC Ported (which will not use 6Gb).

I need to know if a PS5 is coming out I guess; and need to know how much memory that will be designed with?

I think the 6Gb? PS5 will play PS4 games. So keeping up with PC`s comparatively well.

All depending on CUSTOMERS buying habits I guess.
