  1. I wouldn't advise going above uGrids7. There are mods that change LOD distance with a single ESP. Once you install those mods, uGrids7 will look much better than unmodded uGrids11. Plus I'm pretty sure you will gain some FPS. Everything comes at a price of course, if you don't have a powerful GPU I wouldn't advise using an ENB. GTX770 or R9 280X is a bare minimum for a heavily modded Skyrim + High Quality ENB at 1080P.
  2. Keep 780Ti no matter what. Even 980 can't beat 780Ti in some games, don't even try to upgrade to 970, you'll be sorry. A lot of my local friends did the same thing, they thought an overclocked 970 would beat the shit out of a 780Ti. Now all of them trying to return their new cards and half of them got coil whine also And they lost 100USD in the process.
  3. http://www.bit-tech.net/hardware/graphics/2014/09/19/nvidia-geforce-gtx-970-review/9 http://www.pcper.com/reviews/Graphics-Cards/NVIDIA-GeForce-GTX-980-and-GTX-970-GM204-Review-Power-and-Efficiency/Skyrim-S http://www.ocaholic.ch/modules/smartsection/item.php?itemid=1443&page=13 Ignore 1080P and only look for 4K benchmarks, that is basically the same with 1080P modded Skyrim. I'm pretty sure you can run Skyrim with 2K textures(maybe even some 4K) and plus a really good ENB(like Serenity or K ENB).
  4. Same goes for me dude. If you think you can get that look with a GTX 480 that has only 1.5GB VRAM. Good luck with that. You just have no idea what you're talking and you really think that you know and that irritates me. Keep on dreaming, that's all I can say to you.
  5. Oh sorry, I didn't know we're doing that "my skyrim looks prettier than yours" thingy. Here you go; It's obvious that you can't achieve these results with only 1.5GB GTX 480.
  6. Did you ever play Skyrim in your life? Did you ever try modding it? One of them doesn't seem to have a positive answer because you clearly don't know what you're talking about. I can even go 5GB VRAM usage with Skyrim at 1080P. It all depends how much texture you throw at the game. This goes for every other game. Not just Skyrim. The moment you start modding and adding higher resolution textures the VRAM usage will change. You might not need 8GB VRAM, but I'm sure as hell that I can find a use for it.
  7. Updated drivers, thought I should update my score too. CPU: 4670K @ 4600 GPU: 280X @ 1200/1750 FPS: 52.4 Score: 2194 Setting: Extreme HD I'm actually surprised that my score didn't drop after updating to beta drivers. LOL. Not something I would expect from AMD.
  8. Even that 8FPS is a huge difference for me, I still play Skyrim daily basis on a heavily moded setup. So I really need every FPS I can scrap.
  9. Multiply the memory clock by 4 because it is GDDR5.
  10. Why don't you just go ahead and click Add to Cart. Let's see what happens.
  11. LOL, it's kinda funny how people actually thought that was legit.
  12. There is a thread about this on EVGA forums, with enough interest in reference blower I think they might consider it. At least that was what Jacob said. Kinda.
  13. I do currently own a 280X Toxic(that will change soon tho ), the only thing I don't like about it is that the fans are a little bit loud at full load but that's nothing you can't fix with a good fan curve. Default fan curve is just too aggressive for my taste. Other than that it's pretty good imo, mine can push itself to 1200Core/1750Memory without giving artifacts. Which is pretty good IMO.
  14. My combined score is %25 higher than yours and I only got a 280X. You scored lower with an overclocked 290. Which is pretty weird.
  15. 750? Beastly card? What is this nonsense?
  16. Then it is settled. 780Ti Kingpin will be MINE. I just hope that Witcher 3 won't make me regret by requiring 4GB VRAM at Ultra settings.
  17. Just for a second, forget that extra 1GB VRAM and the low power usage of 900 series. And just try to decide between these two in raw performance. Which one would you choose? I managed to get my hands on a very cheap(but new) 780Ti Kingpin Classified(1450TL and 970FTW is 1200TL(roughly 100usd difference)), and I'm insanely tempted to buy it. But when you decide, I want you to take into account that I will OC the card as much as I can on Air(and maybe even liquid if I'll buy 970).
  18. As far as I know, heaven does that on the first launch(extremely low min fps thing), try to benchmark again. Mine is working at 1200/1750, so I was able to get more than 1K score, 1031 exactly. Can't push it any further. This is just like the absolute max I can get. Run it again just to be sure.
  19. Thermal paste has nothing to do with this, he probably installed it wrong. He should be getting less than 30C at stock speeds if mounted correctly of course. Regardless of which thermal paste is used.
  20. Don't get why you buy extra 4 fans though? You got 3 of those same fans already installed in the case, yeah I know that they don't look same at all but you still don't need 4 of them since you're going with 280mm Radiator, you're gonna have to put it at top. Then you will have 3 rooms(2 front 1 back) left for 140mm fans and 2 for 120mm fans at bottom. I don't really think that you would need more than 860W for a 970SLI build. That would "theoretically" be enough even for 980 3-SLI. My build is pretty much the same except my GPU sucks. Same case, same fans, H110 instead of X61(tho I would get X61 if it was possible), a tad worse CPU and MB, little slower version of the same memory but I'm still pretty happy with it.
