Hello guys,
I've been thinking about getting a good rig for gaming, doing autdesk software, revit, CAD, after effect and some editting.
I need a rig for this kind of purpose, and my friend told me to get GTX 780 for the best performance for both,.
if you have any suggestion or good build for my purpose, i would love to hear from you guys.
sorry for my bad english.
my budget is around 1.3k or less. lesser is better.
thanks in advance

The GTX 680 is a great value at the moment and will perform very well for what you are describing. Low latency memory (DDR3-1600 CL8), SSD & HD, BD-RW, and a PSU sized to add a second GPU down the road if desired. Overclock as you please...

the guy above does not know what he's talking about.

There is absoultely no reason you'd spend $380 on a 680.

the 770 is an upgrade/improved version of the 680.. you can get a 770 for around $340.

The guy posting this is focused on gaming only. The GTX 680 will perform much better in your non-gaming efforts than the GTX 770 will. For strictly gaming use, the 770 would be the way to go.
