New Graphics Card Buying Advice


Recommended Posts

Hi all, I play all of the DCS titles and they seem to play ok with my GTX 295 which I know is old.

However, the Huey is dragging a bit. I play with a single monitor at 1920x1200. I have looked at the nvidia offerings and have settled on either a GTX 680 or the 690. I hope to maybe have a 3 monitor surround setup, but that might be a ways off. I also do some 3d animation work in 3ds max and have considered the GTX Titan, but it doesn't really do that much as far as viewports go. Mainly for rendering. So basically do I get the GTX 680 or blow a grand on the GTX 690? I want this card to last me as long as the GTX 295 did, and hope that some future (5 years) DirectX version doesn't make the GTX 690 obsolete. A bit long winded but I have been obsessing over this and I have the means to buy the GTX 690 at this time. Thanks for reading and look foward to advice.

I got the 690 to run my triple set up no problems to report runs fine but I am not a technical guru I just got it to run DCS.

Why do you recommend the Titan? The 690 beats it in all the comparisons. Do you recommend it for gaming or for 3DS Max?
