I was thinking if Asus GTX 770 DirectCU II OC 2gb-256bit Pcie Ddr5 is more than enough for this kind of monitor. If not then I am thinking between these two:

ASUS GTX 780 DirectCU II OC 3GB 384bit

PALIT GTX780 SUPER JETSTREAM

I will this mainly for gaming. I am doing a single monitor setup.
This monitor is what I had in mind.

Asus 24" Swivel LED Monitor VG248QE

Thank you so much. By the way, what is the size of your monitor?

Really depends on the game. As long as you turn down settings for higher end games like Crysis 3 you should be able to take advantage of the faster refresh rates. A 780 would be your best bet (if you want to keep most settings)

Yes, as much as possible I want to play latest games to the fullest settings. But I am reading somewhere that a 780 is a bit overkill for a single 1080p 23-24" monitor. Is that true?

its overkill for a standard 1080p monitor at 60Hz. if you actually want 120 you are asking the GPU to do twice as much work

What games are you playing on your 1080p 120hz monitor with gtx 770 card?

so for a 120/144 hz 1080p monitor, can the gtx 770 still handle it?even on ultra settings?

The 770 does high to ultra on all modern titles at 1080p. If you want ultra with all the aa/af settings completely maxed, you will need a bigger card than the 770.

Most games are maxed... My 770 does crisis 2 on ultra, but the latest games. I run at high/ ultra with some settings down

Will the 780 be able to cover those settings that were put down?

Some consider it overkill, but at 1080P I know for sure a r9-280x or GTX 770 will not be able to run with max settings without getting undesired -> unplayable fps. Yet again, depends on the game.

Most games will run just fine maxed out on a 770, really up to you if you want to spend the extra money.

I am somewhat confused. I want a card that can max out all settings on 1080p 120/144 hz 23-24" single monitor. A card that is future proof ( can run 2013-2016 games at ultra settings 1080p)

Just looking at Guru3d benches. http://www.guru3d.com/articles_pages/geforce_gtx_770_re...

A GTX 770 should do you ultra as of 2014. No one can really tell you if you can run all games in the future at ultra without turning down some details.

From what i see, a 770 should keep you till 2016 if you turn down some details. A 780 would be future proofing it.

i can run like all games on ultra you cant really tell a huge difference till you drop below 60 anyways, i got a 27" full hd monitor, but honestly if you want to save a few bucks get a 770, and sli it when its not up to date with other cards.

So you are saying that a GTX 770 can fully utilize a 120-144hz 23"-24" 1080p monitor? I read somewhere that GTX 770 is the best for 60hz monitor but not for 120/144hz, is that true?

You are asking some very subjective questions. Myself, and quite a few others, are very happy with the GTX 770 on a single 1080p monitor. I run all modern games at high settings or better, and it looks great.

Other people want everything as high as it will go, and have the money to spend, so they buy the 780 or 780 ti. I would rather save the 200$+ and put it towards my next 770 equivalent in a few years.

After building PCs for a while, you understand that parts become obsolete after a few years. Graphics cards become obsolete every 2-4 years, depending on what games you play, and how fast you want to play them. If you buy a GTX 770, I guestimate you will play newer games at high settings for 3 years. Buying a 780, you might get 4 years out of it. I could be completely wrong, but thats my experience. It's not like the 770 is going to last 2 years and the 780 is going to last 10... They will expire close to the same time.

Thanks. I will choose 770 over 780 instead.
