GTX 760 4gb vs GTX 770 4gb

Hi all,

Am finalising the GPU components of my PC build and am looking for Sli / crossfire.

The two cards I am looking at are the Gigabyte GTX 760 4gb and the Gigabyte GTX 770 4gb.

At the moment (thanks to a sale) I could get the 770 for an extra 80$

Is it worth it for this price vs potential gains? Or will an SLI of the 760 be more than enough.

Alternatively are the other comparable /better GPU's out there I should look into?

Side note: CPU is an I5 4670K (will be overclockers)
SSD for gaming and another for Os
16gb basic ram
Asus z87 expert mobo
Power supply to be decided

Currently running a GTX 670 2gb

Regards

  1. What is your budget for GPU and Power supply?
  2. GTX 760 = R9 270X
    GTX 770 = R9 280X

    Since you already have a GTX 670, You would loose a tad bit of performance going to a GTX 760, Since that card is basically a 660ti replacement.

    I would get a 770 from any brand. Though, 4GB is usually only need if you plan to SLI in the future.
  3. From your post it looks like you are determined to SLI! It is better to use one powerful GPU than using SLI. Not all games are SLI supported and you'll need good PSU as well. Anyhow, if you have budget then 770SLI, otherwise my recommendation is to use one 780 or 780Ti. Rest is your choice. Pl keep in mind that PSU should be good enough in terms of efficiency (Load an Stress).

    You may consider Corsair AX760W (80+ Platinum) or CS750W (80+ Gold) or GS800W (80+ Bronze)

    Happy Hunting!
  4. Thanks everyone for your input,

    Perhaps I wasn't to clear though

    My current GTx 670 is an older 2gb model and is not going to be part of the future build.

    The SLI approach is for triple monitor gaming so yes I am quite set on it.

    What exactly was meant by me losing speed going from my current 2gb 670 to a 4gb 770?

    Finally, the power supply has been posted on here and it checks out In terms of running dual GPU with headroom for overclocking.

    I shall look further into pricing on the 770 as my budget is a floating one.

    Finally, what's the major difference in gaming between an SLI GTX 760 4gb and the 770 4gb in SLI also?

    Regards
  5. Just get the one you can afford the most?

    Reguardless of what you do, A 760 SLI is slower than a 770 SLI because a 760 is slower than a 770....

    I would just SLI 4GB 770s for 1080 and Up

    Dear,

    Speed wise 760 is slower than 770 so will be the case with SLI of each. SLI of 760s will be slower than SLI of 770. It all depends on your budget now which SLI you can afford.
  7. Hi everyone,

    Thanks for all your input.

    Have decided on SLI GTX 770 4gb (1 card now + one card soon after)

    Finally the Power supply I have picked out (and posted before for input) is a

    ANTEC TRUE POWER CLASSIC 750W 80PLUS GOLD. UP TO 92% EFFICIENCY, 2X HIGH CURRENT +12V RAILS. 6 X 6+2 PCI-E. 20% ENERGY SAVING >80PLUS

    Power components will be 2xGPU (obviously)
    i5 4670K Oc'd to 4.5ghz (ish)
    Corsair h100 Water Cooler or the H100i (the 280mm one)
    2x Samsung 840 Evo SSD 120gb
    2x Sata HDD's
    1x bluray/dvd/cd W/RW
    4x Case fans (140mm)
    Motherboard is Asus 787 Expert

    Writing this off the top of my head so I hope I havent missed anything,

    If anyone happens to stumble upon this again and notices any problems with proposed PSU please comment.

    I will list my complete build on here once It's ready to be purchased for final checks.

    Thanks everyone!

    Regards,

    Ben
