  1. 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.

    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).

  3. I don't think i need to stoop to your level, but my shot's were to answer your own ignorance.

    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.

  4. Still no evidence supporting your claim, but fast to think i have no experience LOL.


    My modded Skyrim on GTX 480.




    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.

  5. Skyrim is 1 game, it sure as hell does not need 8GB Vram, especially with such resolutions not needed much AA.

    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.

  6. Were missing some minimums. Thats really where things begin to unfold. http://www.bit-tech.net/hardware/2013/11/14/intel-core-i3-4130-haswell-review/5

    Thats the main issue with AMD chips. Not the average (albeit they are still lower) but the fact that there minimum frame rates are pretty terrible. There frame time/latency is also very iffy.

    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.

  7. I do currently own a 280X Toxic(that will change soon tho :D), 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.

  8. 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).

  9. 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.


  10. I would recommend remounting and put you own thermal compound. If your using the pre-applied stuff that's a common issue people ask in the forums and it's an issue i had.


    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.

  11. 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.

  12. I am very impressed at the scores you are posting with a non K CPU. There is nothing budget about my build and you have been posting scores right there with mine. Goes to show how GPU dependent these benchmarks really are.


    That said, I am going to do everything in my power to make sure I stay ahead of you :P


    I am also surprised how close our scores are in Unigine Valley but I have a 2000 point advantage on you in 3Dmark Firesrike, that benchmark must be a bit more CPU dependent.


    There is virtually no difference between an overclocked i7 and a stock i5 in Valley. Saw it on JayzTwoCents with my own eyes. That's why Valley is the best benchmark to measure a GPU's raw power I guess.
