Sleeping Dogs clearly hits a CPU wall quite early on the G3258. Overclocking brings a whole lot more breathing room, and the numbers are playable at all resolutions. Spending this kind of money on a GTX 780 Ti, though, you'd really want to see more than 75 FPS at 1680x1050.

Looking at BioShock Infinite, you can see that at the lower resolutions the G3258 falls behind our other setups. As we climb up the resolutions table, though, the gaps between the setups become smaller to the point where we see the video card being the limitation at 2560x1600.
