I'm traveling to America soon and will be buying the i7 4770K + Asus ROG VI Extreme (ram undecided)
Since i will be there the graphics card prices are almost half price compared to where i live.
I took a look at the new June Graphics card Hierarchy Chart ( http://www.tomshardware.com/reviews/gaming-graphics-car... ) and these three cards are the same tier. I really want to know which one performs better (regardless of cost)...i prefer EVGA but i know that it depends on who it is and some brands are better. I want to look at playing games like Metro 2033 etc. i know the 790 will come out soon but i won't be America when it comes out. Can someone help me out here? please don't tell me which one you prefer i really want to know the performance. Thanks in advanced
I would say 780. The thing with the 6990, is that it's already a generation old (which is fine normally) but when your spending so much on a card, you want to get the most recent. 7970 ghz is also a very good card, but in most games the 780 pulls ahead. http://www.anandtech.com/bench/Product/827?vs=768
Radeon HD 7970GE tested at frequencies of runoff and overclocking Radeon HD 7970GE OC - 1160 MHz on the core and 7160 MHz memory
GeForce GTX 680 was tested at frequencies of runoff and overclocking GeForce GTX 680 OC - by the kernel of ~ 1150 MHz and 7000 MHz for the memory
GeForce GTX 770 was tested at frequencies of runoff and overclocking GeForce GTX 770 OC - on the core 1200 ~ 1300 MHz and 7500 MHz memory
GeForce GTX 780 was tested at frequencies of runoff and overclocking GeForce GTX 780 OC - by the kernel of ~ 1150 MHz and 7000 MHz for the memory
GEFORCE GTX TITAN tested at frequencies of runoff and the crackdown GEFORCE GTX TITAN OC - on the core 1080 ~ 1180 MHz and 6700 MHz memory
The test was performed on one of the most powerful to date gaming configurations based on Intel Core i7-3970X with its overclocked to 4.9 GHz, 16 GB of DDR3 memory with a frequency of 2133 MHz and a hard disk SSD OCZ Vertex 3.
GEFORCE GTX 680 - at present a reasonable approach to the purchase of this decision is questionable. With a market value that is greater than the GEFORCE GTX 770, few enthusiasts will look towards the purchase of a video card.
GEFORCE GTX TITAN - it is still the fastest single-chip solution for the market today, with a huge amount of video memory, and of course, the exorbitant price. But for today's games optimality buy this card after GEFORCE GTX 780 is questionable ...
GEFORCE GTX 770 - the perfect solution in its category to replace GEFORCE GTX 680, which has good performance, cooling, acceleration and can compete on equal terms with the Radeon HD 7970 GE.
GEFORCE GTX 780 - paradoxically enough, but it's competitor GEFORCE GTX TITAN, which is in addition to $ 350 cheaper than the older solution and disperse its performance is comparable with the overclocked version of TITAN. Three gigabytes of memory is enough for all the latest games and for any quality settings. Definitely this is one of the top solutions that really worth the money.
Radeon HD 7970 GE - this card is still very popular PC gamers. At the moment, its performance is comparable to the GEFORCE GTX 770. Of course, the graphics are much noisier and hotter than her new rival, but it has a small bonus - three gigabytes of memory on board.
It is worth noting that for all the latest games for FullHD for maximum quality settings will suffice GEFORCE GTX 770/Radeon HD 7970 GE and pay a large sum for the video card does not make sense.
GEFORCE GTX 780 / TITAN enough in almost all games at 2560x1600, but optimal for the permits they are not. For such high resolutions require the configuration of a graphics chip, the test which we will acquaint you in our next review ...
