They should be dropping within 3 weeks for sure lol, with Black Friday/Nov (newegg) keep an eye out. I just couldn't wait any longer so I grabbed one a couple months ago or so and have had a great experience so far with the asus direct cuii sitting at 1290 core and 7225 memory it hasn't gone over 68 degrees on load
Your GPU is better than mine combined now. As long as you have no Stuttering you're golden!
I'm just waiting for the damn prices to drop on the GTX 770's, hopefully very soon, since the 290X release...
Well since the R9 290x is now out and the R9 290 coming out today I believe the prices should drop on the 770's and 780's.
They may drop even further since the GTX780ti will be released in the middle of November.
Personally I am waiting for Maxwell to be released and also for 4K monitors to become cheaper, since Maxwell is supposed to be able to handle 4K surround, when running SLI easier than the current cards.
My 680's are technically perfectly fine for now and will technically be fine even next year but they are poor overclockers and starting to show there age to me.
Most of the new GPU's cannot OC worth a crap. Your GTX 680's are basically re-branded GTX 770's with a different memory bus. The GTX 770/780 don't have the stuttering (latency) issues of the AMD in CF/SLI comparisons. Sad situation for those purchasing R9 280X/R9 290X in CF as they'll have a rude awakening. Further, I can't stand nor will I purchase reference cards though the reference GTX 770/780/Titan all looked good and the noise/temps were fine.
NewEgg has some R9 290X's ($550~$580 USD) listed for sale but nVidia is still stuck on their damn pricing, and yep I'm keeping and eye pealed. The GTX 770 (to me) is not worth $400 - period; not right now anyway.
I found this incredibly interesting and I thank you for giving me something to do for the last 45mins or so of work lol.
@Momba1 You beat me to it in finding that video; Driftor knows his stuff and is always very helpful. That video was a very enlightening watch!!!
Here’s another one which has some great tips on improving your PC game play experience:-
Ignore the BF4 references as these tips will work with most PC games. Frankie talks about FPS and PC optimisation from 8.30 mins on-wards. Enjoy!!!
Nice video and kinda what I preach here as well.
If all I did was game 7/24 then yep 120Hz monitor with uber low lag; though I kinda like the ASUS VG Series VG278H Black 27" 2ms 120Hz and it would be interesting to compare it to the BenQ Gaming XL2720T Black 27" 1ms 120Hz. The problem is for anything else than gaming TN panels blow. Other than that I wish I could transplant my G500S right/left buttons on my sluggish clicking M65 mouse, but I do really like my K90 mechanical KB.
I'm an old fart and simply wanted a 2560x1440 color accurate monitor as I do at my office. I do SQL/PHP coding and need the larger work area, and no way am I going to swap back and forth a 120Hz monitor nor do I want to cover my @ home desk with multiple monitors.
Yep it can cause tearing especially if your FPS is Stuttering and your Minimum FPS drops below whatever MAX FPS you set. Multiplayer is a whole different world than shooting bots in Campaign and making the rendering 'pretty.'
That should be an accurate assesment of GTX 660. The card won't hold up a sustained 60 fps at max setting & will stutter. Even worst, this new IW engine should be more GPU resource hungry than the previous IW engine.
