Better off with a 770GTX SC

- lifetime AMD customer.

if you buy an AMD product. enjoy your microstuttering shit performance.

( currently running titans )

Avoid TRI slot cards aswell. will nerf your upgrade to Crossfire or SLI in the future.

Delta, microstuttering is expected on all Crossfire/SLI setups.

But I agree with you that Nvidia is better no doubt.

I know it's on both..especially with Tri-quad SLI.. but you can defeat SLi stuttering with drivers. and alittle know-how.. as with crossfire.. it is a hardware AND software issue itself.. I owned two 7970's and they did Wonderful for the first few months.. they released a " performance driver" and it droped by 35-40 frames on average.. Not acceptable.

lol, that type of stuff can be expected. I've owned 3-4 AMD cards in the past myself and have had numerous problems with every other driver update. This is just another reason why Nvidia is better.

Although, that 7970 seems to be faster than a GTX 770. So honestly, I think it would be fine.

AMD has some of the worst driver support out of a lot of hardware companies... So even if they created a beast piece of hardware that blew Titan/780(which are basically the same card minus 3gigs of ram etc. And for those who don't know, when you crossfire/SLI cards only the ram of the first card is counted, the rest is basically wasted.) away spec wise, it would probably still under-preform.

I could go on but... meh.

Thanks for all the advice guys.  Have two 6870's crossfire which is a bit lower then a single 770 but runs bf3 nicely, but upgrading for bf4.  i do see they released a 4g 770 SC.

That is a lot of horse power.

Another question in regards to video cards of the day.  I have a 120hz LG that i play  on. How can i get 120 out of video card? anyone play around with higher hertz?  With technology now days you'd think it would support it and with 1.4 HDMi cables released back in 2012 which do support 120hz max.. you'd think video cards would catch up.  

Any thoughts? or anyone have experience with 120hz?

Yeah 770's would be a good upgrade. But just fyi 770 is basically a slightly altered 680, it doesn't use the same gpu as the 780 and titan.

As for 120hz, I don't believe there are many if any TRUE 120hz monitors, usually with higher hz they overclock the monitor and thus have to cut down on other parts like colour quality etc. But I suggest using Display port first then for other monitors DVI-D.
