900 Series Nvidia Video Cards
Posted 17 September 2014 - 02:23 PM
The 770 Ti has good speeds, but does not float 4GB RAM unless you go with the 780 rehash models. All I know is my 570 GTX with 1024 MB RAM has seen it's share of video limits. Of random note, when you run out of video memory, jank lag is a thing you may see. I saw this a bit maxing out Skyrim and also in the higher graphic settings for Watch Dogs.
Granted I have not been playing a ton of games the last year, so there is no immediate push into a new card. Just one of those things I like to think about upgrading. I am also only interested in 1 video card. None of that SLI chicanery and extra heat generation.

Yes, I am only interested in 1 as well. I figure sooner or later I will have to look at updating since mine was updated... um... fall of 2011? Sims 4 is a thing that I might pick up around Christmas and it may want better card-age. ALTHOUGH, I was able to play on max/high mix for ESO so maybe not quite yet?
Currently rockin the GeForce GTX 560 Ti
According to my system info =p

Yea, and even if it's just your own minimum range i like to stick to higher end of mid-range to keep upgrades spread out. Also, I think having smaller monitors helps? I'm runnin two 19" I think. I'd like bigger but that would require bigger desk which would require bigger house, rofl. Also, they get the job done so no rush there. Although they are preeeeeetty old, I got them post-deployment so like 2008.

I should setup my streaming device in the bedroom. Likely the Wii and a 24" LCD.

I have the Asus Strix 980 GTX. I tend to use the DVI port with an HDMI adapter because it shows POST screens faster than the HDMI slot does. You may have and can find plenty of benchmarks of my performance using the card here on the forums. Most recently in the Razer Blade 1060 review.
Saving you a click, the 980 GTX is still faster, but for the price the 1060 GTX card is likely a better value. I should be making someone a build with a 1060 in there, so I'll add some versus benchmarks when that time comes.
