New Mobo/SLI 670 vs 780ti dilema!

Hi All,

I currently have an i7-2600/gtx670 on my original ASUS computer motherboard. I am considering getting the GTX 780ti sc or getting a new motherboard and another gtx 670.

I am so torn! My current motherboard doesn't recognize my 1833 ram I just got (bios is limited and can't seem to change it) as well as no overclock options on my cpu.

Question of the hour: Would the new motherboard/670/ram and cpu overclock be a better experience than just adding a 780ti sc? (aware my non k processor overclock options are limited).

First option costs less but takes longer to do, 2nd option (780ti sc) cost more but would take like 5 minutes and if it is a better experience overall than that's all good too. What do you folks think?

  1. is that even a delima? i would surely go for the 780Ti now, then as a future apdate, i would change the Mobo and get an unlocked CPU. the CPU you currently have is great, and the RAM upgrade is more a brag than a performance boost.

    780Ti..Sli was a headache for me
  3. You guys are awesome and I was thinking the same thing, ok same situation but with a regular 780 super clocked? New mobo/670 would cost about the same as 780 sc (after selling my 670).
  4. 780ti is way faster. Generally gpu rule 1 high end card is way better den two mid -highn end card. In order to later avoid running into sli or crossfire issues which are common in quite a nos of games.

    What do you think about a regular 780 superclocked vs mobo/2nd card? With the new mobo I can overclock cpu/ram for the first time and is a lot cheaper. 780 sc has been give/take 1fps or less with titan, 780ti sc is of course faster but $200 more and I plan to stay at 1080p/eventually gsync...

    The 780 superclocked would do but den I find it really expensive and not worth the price.imho opinion any good brands 780 with the correct overclocking n cooling can reach that 780 superclocked. The 780 is surely a beast but we suggeat the ti version for future n next gen since its def faster than d titan. If not...are you open to amd products? Coz over therw I suggest the 290x which is comming soon with the after market coolers. Its beats the 780 in price n performance.
  7. I love the 290/x cards and have been checking daily for aftermarket reviews/benchmarks. The one blessing in disguise if I go AMD is I would not end up getting a G-Sync monitor although I am expecting good reviews with that as well which is why I was asking about the 780/ti cards. If all goes well with G-Sync I should be fine with my 670 if it's true 40+fps will feel smooth 80+ super sharp is what the Nvidia folks are saying.
  8. I ended up getting a 780ti because I didn't want to change motherboards and was able to sell my 670 for $200 and got my 780ti for $660 on sale so total cost $460 a little more than a new mobo/2nd card . I know 670 sli is faster but am still happy with my build especially since I play a lot of titanfall which has bad multi-gpu scaling.
