    Galaxy Microsystems, a leading manufacturer of high performance graphics cards, announced today the GeForce GTX 780 GC. The GC edition is the latest example of engineering excellence from Galaxy, designed for even greater performance and custom cooled with Galaxy's all new premium, high efficiency dual fan cooler. The new twin fan cooling system contains numerous upgrades. EBR Fluid bearings guarantee longer fan life with silent operation, and hybrid Copper and Aluminum cooling fins maximize heat transfer from the card's overclocked GPU. The card itself features a custom PCB with high grade components and an impressive 1019Mhz boost clock for enhanced gaming performance right out of the box. Enthusiasts will want to take full advantage of the card's superior cooling and improved overclock potential using the included Xtreme Tuner Plus overclocking and monitoring software.

    The GTX 780 GC edition is built with 3GB of GDDR5 and supports NVIDIA GPU Boost 2.0, Adaptive Vsync, PhysX, 3D Vision, and Surround. The already quiet twin fan cooler also benefits from an upgraded fan control algorithm which stabilizes speeds, minimizing distractions from fans ramping up and down during gameplay. The Galaxy GTX 780 GC 3GB is available now at leading retailers and etailers, including Amazon, Best Buy, NCIX, Newegg, and TigerDirect. Customers can also buy direct from Galaxy's online store.

    The blue doesn't really work for me.

    Blue is fine, but the shroud looks like it is made out of very cheap plastic and copper accents don't look all that stylish.

    That looks cheap (which is a shame given the expected inflated price), even though it probably performs really well.

    Copper fins on the inner, aluminum fins on the outer. I'm interested to see how this cooler performs, I could care less about the shroud and whatever stickers are slapped on it.
    Animalpak says thanks.

    its not really worth looking at unless they installed the new fast 2ghz capable memory chips on it.. if they can be on 770, why not on 780, right? right.

    I really like Galaxy cards.
    Currently my GTX 660 keeps incredibly cool.
    Galaxy might look cheap in picture but they are really great cards.

    Even if you can get 2ghz out of your vram the result is minimal.

    Since its clocked same as eVGA gtx780 SC ACX card, wonder how well the cooler does in comparison.

    it would make for a more visible performance increase in the higher end hardware though. to untie hands of the gk110 beast completely. just saying, wishing.. like the upcoming msi 780 lightning or maybe custom titan pcbs with improved clocks to compete the new amd radeon line in fall/winter..
