  1. I would recommend the 780 Ti (http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16814127770).
    It's almost 3 times as fast as a single 580.

    unfortunately newegg doesnt ship to australia :( and they are more expensive here
  3. Your only options for a worthwhile upgrade are


    GTX 780
    R9 290
    R9 290X
    GTX 780 Ti ( This being the best option @$699)
  4. If you haven't had any issues with SLI you could also buy two 770's. They would be even faster than one 780 ti
  5. Id personaly prefer a single card... had a couple of issues with sli.... also cards are about 100 bucks more expensive here so 780 ti and 770 sli are a bit pricey, im kinda thinking of an r9 290, how bad is the stock cooler? really as bad as people say?

    What are the prices and no the reference cooler isn't as bad as ppl make it
  7. Well, it gets pretty loud under load, but there are 290's with custom coolers now, for example by asus or sapphire
  8. prices are pretty much just 100 higher than newegg on most cards... i like to buy from PCCG http://www.pccasegear.com/index.php?main_page=index
  9. how big of an upgrade would a 780 be over 2 580?

    About 25% better performance
  11. hmmm a good upgrade... what about a R9 290 vs a 780? which is more powerfull?
  12. Best answer
    They are equally good in games, the 290 score slightly better scores in benchmarks like 3dmark firestrike
  13. hmm i think i will go with a 290 then... ill order in a few weeks, see if any new custom cards come in stock :) thanks mhedas and ramalpan and gamerkila57 for your suggestions
