    Requirements: 2550x1440, preferred max settings on every game, good OC potential
    Current rig: CPU: 3770k @ 4.5, GTX 680 4GB 1250/4000

    I was looking at the Classified, Superclocked, MSI 3Gaming, Asus DC II

    Which one can you recommend?

    Honestly, I'd save some green and get a 780 and overclock. I said that wrong. I was meaning at that resolution. Hell, if I can get my lightning to 1400 or 1500 mhz, i'd go against any 780TI

    Well... I have a and I would suggest a GTX 780 ti SC (reference PCB) Its not that bad of a overclocker (My Max OC 1277 Core & 1861 Mem) and it is great because I have a whole range of waterblocks to choose from because of the reference PCB. (even though most of the cards you chose do have available waterblocks)Plus we all know EVGA has world famos Customer service and Warranty turn around.

    That's my vote.... Vendors with a solid warranty is always going to get my vote. (MSI Have had bad Customer service experience and Asus gave me back a used card, and a really long turn around time *8 weeks*)
    If you don't get the SC version go with the classified version.

    I don't know where you are at, but NE has the MSI for $640 after MIR.

    What he said, my SC's OCing is about the same.

    I side/down/up graded from a year old Titan to a 780ti Classified Hydro Copper. Unless you plan on benching, I'd not bother getting one. So far I've had mine at 1347Mhz at 1.3v but that requires custom bios and the classified software (but to be fair, very little effort). The stock bios on my Classified is stable at 1202 Mhz on 1.17volts (can't adjust voltage for some reason without a custom bios).

    If benching or overclocking/over volting isn't an issue, I'd get the cheapest custom card. (in the UK, that is the MSI Gaming normally but the EVGA SC version is also a good bet).

    Why don't you get another GTX 680 and SLI 'em up?

    The Classified looks like a good OC. Then there is this Galaxy/KFA2 or Gigabyte version.

    All offer 1020mhz out of the box with room to further OC. The Gigabyte is $50-80 cheaper though.
