Can I Max Out All Games With This Setup?

I've been custom building the ultimate computer, gotten various feedback from people, and the only thing I'm hesitating is the graphics card I've gotten feedback from people as I just said but when it came to graphics cards they were all completely different opinions. I decided to go with DUAL EVGA GeForce® GTX 690 915MHz, 4GB GDDR5 6008MHz. People say it will be better than 3 680's or 4 overall. e.g; less power/heat consumption and perform the same if not better.

money is not an isssue

So what my real question is will I be able to max out every game with it. 120fps and max settings on 3d gaming?

If not than what can?

BTW what monitor should I get I went with the samsung 27" S27A750D Series 7 LED 3D Monitor if there are better 3d monitors please tell.

This thread is a joke, right? That GPU is the most powerful single PCB card in existence.

There is absolutely nothing better on the market than a GTX690, except maybe two GTX690's running in quad SLI. If you can actually get your hands on one, consider yourself lucky.

In all honesty, you're overbuilding by current gaming standards.

I went with Dual GTX690's running in quad SLI, my real question is will I be able to max out every game with it. 120fps and max settings on 3d gaming?

thats a bit of a trick question, u know... If that setup wont max something then nothing will (at the moment anyways)
If you are that worried about it, then maybe you should wait for the next generation cards, or the ones after that... :pt1cable:

I don't mean everything just all the best games e.g battlefield,The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim,The Witcher 2,Mass Effect 3 and Deus Ex
will it be able to run them at max on 3d or 120 fps

We already answered that.... yes.

I don't think this set up is an overbuild. 120fps max at 3d means minimum 240fps overall in all games. I think a dual gtx690 will do the trick.

You actually need 120fps for 3d vision (60fps per eye)..I only get about 30 something per eye and my gameplay experience is less than pleasant in 3d vision. And I have a single gtx580. In theory, your gtx 690 setup should be 4x that.

If money truly isn't an issue, then stick with the 3960K.
If money does make a minor difference, then i would suggest a 3930K, similar performance for $400 less.

I also don't recommend 2X 690's, i personally think 3-4 680's are your best bet, as they have a higher memory clock speed.

I would chose a Sound Blaster sound card instead, here is the link:

Finally, yes, either 2 690's or 3-4 580's will easily play any game on max settings at any resolution. You can probably even max out on multiple monitors. Even a single 590 can probably max out almost every game.

I love the build, hopefully one day i will be able to build something that awesome.

Good Luck!

Thank you for your feedback but I'm sticking with the 690's as they will put out less heat and power consumption, also they will perform better and can be clocked to the same speeds if not higher.
The sound blaster card is not all that, my on board sound card is better.

Hopefully you will build something like this it's easy. If you really want you'll get it trust me.

I can guarantee you your on-board audio sin't as good as the SB card. But after more investigating the card you suggested is better.

680's are clocked slightly faster than 690's, but 690's are also a good option as they use less power, are quieter and produce less heat.

I would also recommend 32 GB of RAM, it won't give you much better performance, but it will future proof your system even more and its nice to have.

Finally, It's not about the difficulty of the build, it's about the funds :(  So if you feel that a single 690 is enough, i'll gladly take that second 690 off your hands XD

That's all

P.S. Remember to select a best answer as both you and the poster get points. It's a great way to show your appreciation.

That is one heck of a computer. But one thing for sure, you'll be consistently over 60 FPS.
