Just sold my CF 7850's and looking for a upgrade. Would a GTX 770 perform better or more a side step? AMD's R9 280x is way over priced at the moment as i would consider that card as well. But ill be gaming on a 1920X1200 monitor and looking for a upgrade and not so much a side step.

PS i made $280 selling both my 7850's, so really a GTX 770 wouldn't cost too much more. Would a GTX 780 be worth it at all or overkill for this monitor?

Thanks for the help!!

What games do you play?

dschutt84 submitter 3 Builds 1 point 62 months ago

BF4 is the most demanding game i play at the moment. Crysis, I'm not a fan. Ghost, Assassins Creed, Batman and AOE II "HD" :)

Do you plan on going with a 1440P monitor anytime soon?

Probably not since I have a 27" 1200p. I'll wait till they go further down in price.

At 1200P I think the GTX 770 would more than suffice on BF4. My GTX 780 @ 1080P maxed averages 80-100FPS. Never dips below mid 70FPS and in lots of cases runs at 110+ FPS. (Full online match)

It's too bad the R9 280X's price is so inflated at the moment, otherwise that would be the logical route, especially with the extra 1GB of VRAM.

Yeah I know or the 290. But it is what it is. I'd love to get a gtx 780 but it's almost like I'm getting the 770 for free.
