I am currently running 660tis in sli and was wondering if I would lose some fps if I sell them and run a single 780?  I think the performance would be relatively close if I am not mistaking.  To be honest I really really love the look of the newer cards :)  Of course 2x780 will blow it out of the water but how will a single 780 fair against my 660tis?

    Im trying to figure out a very similar issue. I have GTX 580 SC in SLI which are very close to the GTX 660ti in SLI. From what I have read and seen around the net one 780 SC is pretty much the same, give or take a few FPS, as a GTX 580 SLI set up. 
     
    Check out this guys videos on recent games using the 780. I have, and now I am sold on going a single card with the same horse power as two......

    Because the Titan is ~5% faster than the 780, you can make a very good estimation of your results by looking at Titan versus 660Ti SLI.

    If the Titan is bested (barely) by the 660Ti SLI, you can be assured that a single 780 cannot beat the 660Ti in SLI for 1080p.
     
    If you're looking at Surround resolutions, the answer may very well be different because of the RAM. 
     
    Basically 660Ti in SLI is better than a single 780, but 2 780s in SLI are insane fast.

    That all depends on the version of the 780 and what the OP wants from his setup. 
     
    If you are looking at the vanilla 780 then yes, the Titan is about 5% faster. If you are looking at picking up the 780 SC ACX card then it beats the Titan in almost all benches except synthetics.

    I am selling my two GTX 580 SCs for one 780 SC ACX. I may not get a performance increase per se, however I will have ONE card that can do the work of two. I won't have to worry about whether or not Nvidia is going to fix a certain SLI scaling issue or if they even bring a fully functioning SLI profile out for a certain game i.e. any MMO on the market as of late...
