so as the thread says guys, the thing is the 780 is about £100 or so above my budget (the msi version is the cheapest i could find), EVGA is my favourite when it comes to nvidia cards (awesome cooling)....so my question is this, the EVGA should supposedly have better oc potential than the MSI one, right?....so if i overclock the EVGA gtx 770, would i be able to close the gap and maybe catch upto the 780?, how close can i possibly get to the 780?....i think the fps difference between them is about 10-15, i mean thats a ridiculously low amount of fps for £100...also, another possibility maybe running two gtx 750ti in sli (dont worry about the power consumption, my psu has plenty of juice)...will that be a slightly more viable option?....and yea before anyone recommends me a r9 290/x i would like to say one word...: Physx :) 

...thanks

Just save the money and get the GTX 770. A 780 isn't overly worth it

You probably won't be able to OC the 770 to catch up to the GTX 780, but if the 780 is above your budget, go for the GTX 770.

Sadly, the GTX 750Ti doesn't support SLI so running 2 of them in SLI is impossible.

Here is a link with the 770 vs the 780, as you can see the difference between the two is about 15-20 fps depending on the game. These are reference cards but the number will give you a general idea of the performance gap.

yes you can overclock the 770 but you are not going to match the 780, and you will be able to overclock the 780 even farther so. I would recommend saving a little longer and getting the 780, it will be better in the long run. Correct me if I am wrong but the 750 ti does not support SLI. Also with the current drivers it is better to have a single powerful GPU over a SLI setup.

hmm yea the difference is about 10-15 fps, can I seriously not cover that with an oc'd 770? (I heard moderate oc gains about a 10% gain in fps?)How close can I get?


EDIT: also, Aspire, what do you mean the 780 is not overly worth it? ( I mean why, a bit more elaboration pls)

Ok say you gain 10% by overclocking the 770, but then say you overclock the 780 and gain 10%, The gap is still there. you will not know how much you can push your GPU until you get it and try. it all depends on how lucky you get with the chip, some will overclock very good, and others not so much. EVGA tends to use higher quality chips in their GPUs allowing for easy stable overclocks.

Remember the numbers I posted were all reference cards, so the better brands EVGA, ASUS ect. will put up better numbers. I say save up for the 780 because it is a better investment when you are looking at long term, and you will be able to overclock the 780 much farther than the 770. By the time you have issues gaming with the 780 you will be able to get a second 780 for cheap and run an SLI setup. or you can get the new current gen GPU, 9xx 10xx whatever they are going to be called.

hmm k i understand, i could wait a bit and save up some more and then maybe get the 8xx series whenever they come out?...the 780 oc'd will obviously be more powerful than a 770 oc'd....but what i was sayin was a 780 non-oc'd (the msi version) and a 770 oc'd as much as possible (the evga version)

i don't know for sure. but i am sure if you got a good 770 and OC'd it you would have no problem gaming for the next couple of years. maybe you will have to turn down AA for some future titles but i am sure you will be just fine.
