    EVGA GTX 780 Ti SuperClocked w/ ACX Cooler 3072 MB

    Well maybe you can consider Gtx 770's 4GB in Sli. A 7970 Xfire setup works really well too. Yes I know that $400 or $500 is a steep price even for a commodity and that value wise 2 7970's/R9 280X are a really good option nowadays and they scale really well over multi monitor setups so 2 thumbs...

    EVGA GTX 780 Ti SuperClocked w/ ACX Cooler 3072 MB

    Duh, of course I know that two cards are faster than one and of course a lost of Sli drivers are bad. I know all that (Farcry 3 crap Sli performance and freeze ups is a testament to that) what I'm referring to is this...

    EVGA GTX 780 Ti SuperClocked w/ ACX Cooler 3072 MB

    You see people, sound reasoning. It's not about which card is pricier, hotter, louder or who has money to burn. It's about which card you choose and which card gets you where you want to be thats all. All became real quiet about the GTX 780 but in reality that is a really great card. It doesn't...

    EVGA GTX 780 Ti SuperClocked w/ ACX Cooler 3072 MB

    Right now I don't see the point. I'm hitting frames equal to this card at stock with my GTX 780 Classified (overclocked it gets like 10.02% over mine on Battlefield 3) so three months earlier I would've bought one of these or the upcoming GTX 780 Ti Classified but right now I see it as a more...

    Has anyone tried to put a normal GTX 780 and a Ti in mismatch Sli?

    NVIDIA GeForce GTX 780 Ti 3072 MB

    People this is basic economics and marketing at its most extreme. First off, AMD's monster R9's were tested and released with the shoddy cooler so that after market vendors would get a big chunk of the action. For example the card heats up like a freaking toaster then what do we do? We buy after...

    I think you might be up to something, lets wait for retail reviews and we'll see. As it stands I think the price for my second GTX 780 Classified is nigh, $580, I think that would hit the spot nicely for $120 less. Classy's in Sli woohoo!!

    NVIDIA GeForce GTX 780 Ti 3072 MB

    Hanging on to my GTX 780 Classified, this card OC'd didn't even break 10% over my trusty Classy. Yes it is faster. Would I take the loss and sell my classy for this? Don't think so, same technology, a little bit faster.

    NVIDIA Preparing GeForce GTX 780 GHz Edition?

    Well I'm running my GTX 780 Classified @1306 core so I don't see why I would be interested in any of the new variants. I assume most of them would be on the same level or below what I'm running right now so I think I'll pass.

    NVIDIA Preparing GeForce GTX 780 GHz Edition?

    That's what I was talking about. They're desperately trying to catch up even with "superior" hardware. They are rehashing their top of the line GPU's to compete. Frankly I think they would've competed well enough with just the price drops and then going back into R&D and coming back with a whole...

    NVIDIA Preparing GeForce GTX 780 GHz Edition?

    I really hope not, I hope they release it on some new space age silicon that actually pulls them apart from the herd. The problem now is that anyone with two cards would be able to match it and I really don't want to know the price.

    NVIDIA Preparing GeForce GTX 780 GHz Edition?

    C'mon Nvidia get a grip. You guys have only just realized that AMD has been gaining ground in the GPU business for quite a while. Imagine that they are still selling strong two years after release and they are still going to be selling strong for a while thanks to the new re-brands and backward...

    That's cool, the design actually works really well although the quality of the fans leaves something to be desired.

Righ now you can get it at Newegg for 399.99 and it includes Batman Arkham Origins and a 32GB USB 3.0 flash drive. I have one and this cards rock, 1280 boost...

    MSI GeForce GTX 780 Lightning 3072 MB

    I'm hitting 66 to 71 degrees with my current OC on the Classified but I live in a tropical island and ambient temps run from 28C to 38C depending on the day so my temps are good. Back to the Lightning, have they released the 300% power limit bios? That actually would help a lot and most of...

    MSI GeForce GTX 780 Lightning 3072 MB

    Wait, we are talking about the Lightning right, sorry I was referring to my EVGA Classified. You shouldn't be seeing throttling if you have not used the extra +38Mv. There might be something wrong there. Are you using temp limits? In which benchmark/usage scenario are you seeing throttling?

    MSI GeForce GTX 780 Lightning 3072 MB

    Actually it depends on the load, If I put a really heavy load it will stay @ 1280/1306 core all the time. If I put a lighter load it might not get to the high numbers because it can manage the load just fine. I also used k-boost to test if stability was a problem and it runs like a charm. The...

    MSI GeForce GTX 780 Lightning 3072 MB

    My card hits 1280 boost clock stably without any external software apart from Precision. I just switch to the LN2 bios, raise the power limit to 115%, over volt to the max of 38 Mv (wow) and it will get there on its own. I tried one of the bios hanging around the web, and got it to 1380 but it...

    MSI GeForce GTX 780 Lightning 3072 MB

    Oh ok, yeah I don't believe they will drop in price anytime soon either. Well I gotta say even with all the flaws of these high end classifieds and lightnings, the manufacture is mostly excellent even with the crappy Elpida chips but I am nonetheless super disappointed with the low power limit...

    MSI GeForce GTX 780 Lightning 3072 MB

    Yup basically, but in all honesty my Classified is better at keeping the space tidy but its really similar in performance to the MSI. Unless you destroy the chances of getting warranty you wont get anything too spectacular out of it. Welcome to the age of uniformed overclocking.
