Hi, all! As you probably gathered from the title I am wondering about which graphics card to put in my new pc for ArcheAge. I have my eyes on either 2 GeForce GTX 780s or 1 GTX Titan. I'm just wondering which will give me a more smooth and pretty game experience. I don't know where to test this elsewhere so I'm asking here in the hopes that someone will know.

Thanks :)

That's overkill. As with every mmo, CPU is more important than graphics card. You would be able to run this game perfectly well on a $300 280x.

if you have the money a single 780 is more than enough

either one of that options will run the game great.

If with either of those ( SLI 780 or titan ) you get low fps , it must be related to cpu and/or the game itself.

I haven't been on very big pvp battles ( and I assume that's mainly cpu heavy ) but so far ... anything with more power than a 560 Ti can run the game fine on high DirectX9 without facing fps lower than 40.

So .. right now from what I'v seen, both of those choices are overkill , so you should compare both choices in other games and general information ( temps and if you want SLI etc ).

Both of them will run AA just fine , and will not be the "bottleneck".

I have a GTX 460 and the game had to be on lower graphics. I'm just wondering, because this is on the CryEngine.

You will have slutter even with 4xGTX790 in massive PVP, and because of server side limited bandwight (Client might eat up to 10mbps in housing/farming territory)
but if you ask me ... GTX 760 is fairly enough, but SSD is definentely needed...

I have a i7 4770 with a GTX 760, I can run everything on ultra but with 4x MSAA I only get around 30 fps, full aa (16x) only 20. So I have it set to FXAA in the nvidia control panel and only 1x AA in game, then its between 35-50 fps depending on the location. Kind of dissapointed, cause in full AA it looks a lot better.

Sounds like a single GTX 780 it is. Thanks again guys. And of course CPU will take precedence.

A good benchmark would be at:

Adjust it for your res if not 1080p. 60fps to stay smooth on a standard monitor +10%

i have a GTx 660 2gig ram... i played kr for quite some time on full graphics had no problems fps wise ... did 100v100 wars and raids without a single issue with fps on north continent/ open waters / housing areas / random areas...

If you can afford upgrading your rig with a GeForce 780 or higher than you should do it. It's worth it.

I would say go for a Nvidia GTX 780 Ti, because the reason why is that if you ever get bored of Archeage and want to play another game, at least you can also play that certain game in max settings. That graphic card will help you last for a good 4-6 years till you have to replace it again for direct X13/X14 or something else.
