Hi Guys,

 

My EVGA GTX 780 Ti died and I need to buy new video card.

 

I am thinking about GTX 1080 Ti and I was wondering if you can recommend anything to me?

 

I am looking for work horse from upper end that’s not over priced and doesn’t run hot. I am planning to spend around $1000

 

Please post your suggestions.

 

I live in Canada. If you could point me to make model and where they are selling it at the best price in Canada, that would be amazing.

 

Thank you in advance.

 

Ildasm

If you are going to play this game exclusively a 1080 Ti is an overkill, but I would get ASUS, Gigabyte or EVGA for Nvidia GPUs.

A 1050 ti is all you will really need.

honestly.  price to performance right now.  1080 is over priced.   and due to a deficit, the price will be going up

 

1070 is your best bet for price:performance right now,  until 1080 is mainstreamed.

 

i'd suggest SAGER for custom-ability. good quality as well. good price

or ASUS, though less options for them

If you are playing anything at 1080p you don't need anything more powerful than an RX580/GTX1060.

 

At that resolution anything more powerful is pissing your money away for no benefit whatsoever.

Might want to look at a 1070.  Same amount of VRAM, $200 cheaper.

My Dream Machine Asus ROG 34" curved monitor and Asus ROG Computer with a 1080 Ti Graphic Card just so you can run the monitor. The Asus Computer about $2000 and the Asus 34" curved monitor $1200 a bargain at Best Buy. With your Best Buy Store Card you would make a $300 a month payment for 12 months with 0% interest. You would be able to play any game on the market at maximum setting. Games such as CIG Star Citizen and World of Tanks. :)

I am getting 110 fps with a GTX 970 on max settings. It gets up to 60c at 99% load.

The human eye can't distinguish more than about 50-60fps....so running a game at over 90 fps doesn't really matter,it's the rendering that you need to consider. Having said that,  1050ti will still do the trick,and along with a decent monitor,CPU,ram...well depends on what you want to achieve for your money.

Personally, I'd spend for a mid range card that will do a little bit more than you need for WOT,and spend the rest on peripherals...such as a good headset,a good monitor and of course a really good chair for those long hours of gameplay.

I can recommend the Astro A50 headset and a full leather EPIC noble chair as my extras. Both are very comfortable.

Either way in which you decide,I wish you the best of luck.

Not this again... 

 

If that is true there is no sense to even produce 120 and 144Hz screens.

this is completely incorrect and has been debunked a ton. 

the human eye can detect changes in an image up to 250fps for most people, and for some as high as 400fps. 

 

the old 30fps thing has to do with SMOOTH MOTION. the hum eye considers 40+ FPS thats ROCK STABLE to be "fluid motion video" as opposed to a series of still images.  once you add in bouncing frame rates, people notice that crap easily. 

 

motion pictures with blur are perceived as fluid at 22fps, but only because of the low resolution and high amount of blur.

I can easily detect the difference between 60 fps and 144 fps, if you can't maybe you should have an eye exam. I have a 144hz monitor and a second 60hz monitor on a different computer, results are dramatically different.

 

As for the card if you want longevity definitely go with a 1080 ti. It's 25 ish percent faster than regular 1080. You didn't give us enough information though, what kind of case do you have? What is your PSU, do you have clearance for a big card? I personally choose EVGA nvidia graphics cards because they stay close to reference models, so clearance in your case may be less of an issue. I think MSI is a good second choice, however the cards are HUGE and may not fit in a smaller case if you have something like a micro atx or mini itx case.

Hz is a refresh rate not fps

and personally it's an opinion if you wish to feel good about playing with a 70fps or 120fps,either way you still have to rely on the internet servers getting the information to you fast enough to matter,so ping,packet loss is more important than anything over ..I don't know... a 60-70 fps. 

I get anything from 65-90fps but my ping is 240.... my stats aren't that bad,I feel, but if I could get a 30 ping,with no packet loss,I'm sure I'd look a lot better on paper.

Yes, that's why you can't see more than 60fps in a 60Hz screen.

You can run world of tanks on a toaster.

 

1080 ti is massive overkill. You have to remember WG's targeted audience is Eastern Europe, so they don't make the game demanding in order to get as many Eastern Europeans as possible.

Yep. What card you get nowadays is tied more to what resolution and frame rate you want to run. A 1070 is the best choice for 1440p and a 1080ti will do 4k with ease. At 1080p a cheap 1050 or 1050 ti will run wot maxed out along with many other popular games.
