    Default Videocard Advices

    Hi guys how are you?

    I wanna your help/ advice

    I live in Brazil and here the CPU Hardware is way expensive, about 3x the USA price

    So last year i was at USA and bought 2 GTX 780 to use with SLI and a 2560X1440 resolution

    This year about October/November i`m coming back to USA and was thinking about what to do

    1 -Stay with my 2 780 SLi even eith only 3GB and a 1440P resolution

    2 - Buy 2 Titans Black (each one 1000 dollars)

    3 - Buy one Titan Z (3000 dollars)

    4 - Wait and see the new line, 880 maybe

    So what should i do guys?

    Thanks

    In November, prices will be starting to come down, and new gear will be available.
    You should wait and see what's for sale then.

    For right now, stay with your 780s. The Titans won't do much for you in terms of performance, definitely not worth the investment.

    The new 800 line is due out next month, and until we see what they can do any advice would purely be speculation.

    I'm with you. Switching to the Titans will not gain you enough performance to justify spending that kind of cash. If you plan on going up to higher resolutions then get 780s with 6GB

    I think the better way is to wait for 800 series.

    I love my 2 gtx 780's they are beast's.
    The choice is clear I can quit
    And fall on my sword or light a fire
    To see who runs or stays
    And plays the confidence game
