    Default EVGA GeForce GTX 760 4GB Dual FTW ACX SLI

    Still in the process of building my dream computer. Need help selecting the GPU. The monitor I want to gear up for is the ASUS PG278Q. http://rog.asus.com/tag/pg278q/

    Purpose - Gaming/Programming - No upgrades for at least 5 years.


    Will 2 EVGA GeForce GTX 760 4GB Dual FTW ACX be sufficient enough to run new games on Ultra or High setting on that monitor?

    While doing some research for 4k monitors it sounds like I need some VRAM, and the GTX 760 has 4GB. Also for this monitor it is recommended to use Nvidea instead of AMD graphics cards. So gearing towards a GTX Model with some extra VRAM (as suggested in many forums for a 4K monitor).

    Also want to stick to EVGA as I heard some really wonderful things about them and their graphics cards.

    GTX 760 4GB SLI - $289.99
    GTX 760 4GB SLI - $289.99

    VS.

    GTX 780 6GB SLI - $579.99

    GTX 780 6GB SLI - $579.99


    VS.

    GTX Titan Black 6GB SLI - $1019.99

    GTX Titan Black 6GB SLI - $1019.99

    Now I'm not rich, so the Titan black may sound great but I won't be able to SLI right away and that option would have to wait a possible 6 months down the line. Do need something that is reasonable price but also future proof (Min 5 years).

    Easy choice. The Titan black is an overpriced under performer for that price toy for rich kids. Pass on it. Save yourself some money. Price/Performance doesn't add up just like the first Titan. Get a 780ti if you want to spend that kind of cash.

    760GB 4GB vs 780 6GB are you real choices. This is easy again.

    The 760s in SLI will get you better performance but not by a large margin. You will also have more heat, power usage, risk of driver problems and micro stutter. Not all games or apps can support SLI.So you might not be able to even use it 100% of the time.

    The 780 6GB version will give you more Vram because 4GB+4GB=4GB in this world, Less power, less heat, simple driver installs, 100% app and game capability, future room to upgrade to SLI if you only get one now and will cost about the same as the 760s in SLI.

    And if you decide to go full water cooling you only need one block instead of 2.

    THe 780 6GB is the clear victor in this round.

    I say go with the 780, I have both 780 and 760s. I have 760s 4GB in SLI and you will not be able to max out in some games, I run 5760x1200 and with SLI GTX 760, I can only run BF4 in High to say above 60FPS. With a Single 780 I can get 70FPS running BF4 with the same settings. In fact, the 780 feels much smoother compared to the SLI set up. My plans are to get a second for SLI, but funding issues right now.

    Honestly if vram is what you need/want then unless the cards are doing any sort of pro rendering for you, you will never see the benefit of more density. The memory bus on the 760 just isn't fast enough to make use of more vram like that, therefore the card benches mostly the exact same as the 2 gb variant. Save yourself some cash on that front; go with one 780 since those actually have the bus speed to make use of more vram.

    Thanks all for the help. Clearly the winner is the 780 6GB!
