Upgrade Path From gtx 780

Probably just going to get another gtx 780 at this stage, as I managed to get the witcher 3 to playable frame rates as is, without sacrificing some sort of mystical stuffed animal.

Title says it all, I was considering getting a second gtx 780 to sli for around 350ish AUD however I want to play the Witcher 3 at non potato frame rates and it seems Kepler is kill for that game. Is there a better solution for the same price tag (assuming I can sell the 780 at what people are asking for it)? Happy to consider red options before nvidia because the drivers for witcher have left me pretty salty. Also I have a catleap 2440x1440p ips 60hz-90hzOC monitor and I'd like to pair it up and match the oc fps.

980 on the Nvidia side, fury non x maybe on the AMD side. 


Spoiler

Corsair 400C- Intel i7 6700- Gigabyte Gaming 6- GTX 1080 Founders Ed. - Intel 530 120GB + 2xWD 1TB + Adata 610 256GB- 16GB 2400MHz G.Skill- Evga G2 650 PSU- Corsair H110- ASUS PB278Q- Dell u2412m- Logitech G710+ - Logitech g700 - Sennheiser PC350 SE/598se


Is it just me or is Grammar slowly becoming extinct on LTT?

I mean I would sell the one I have already for 350ish and add another 350 so $700 to play with, if it s a little over that's OK, There's that diminishing returns thing. I know the 980ti gets close in performance to sli 780's but the price tag is a bit much. So i'm really looking for a single gpu that's roughly the price and performance of two 780's without the witcher 3 kepler baggage. Keen to see the fury benchmarks as I think that's where  I might be going.

How did you get the witcher 3 playable?

The only way i get it at 60fps is running in 1080p (high/ultra without aa), on 1440p with lowest settings its still not smooth ;(

Roll back drivers and disable Nvidia Streamer Service if you don't use SHIELD or ShadowPlay. Worked for me.

Basically turned everything on low at the start and worked my way up on things I couldn't live without. This guide is pretty handy as well https://www.reddit.com/r/witcher/comments/36x97d/the_witcher_3_wild_hunt_performance_guide_rwitcher/. Ultra textures and at least medium shadows are a must, everything else is personal preferences. Make sure to assign physx to cpu instead of gpu and pre rendered frames to 1 in nvidia control panel.
