OK here it goes. I was so set on buying an MSI R9 290X Gaming OC last week. I contacted the retailer and I just missed out on the last stock. it was at a price of PhP 29,000.00 (+/- USD 650.00). I'm gonna have to wait until late March or early April for the new stock to arrive and it's not guaranteed I'm gonna get one since I'm on a wait list. The price isn't also guaranteed. It might go up or down. I don't really want to go over the PhP 30,000 mark so I never thought about buying the 780 Ti but then I stumbled upon a used reference Zotac GTX 780 Ti being sold for PhP 28,000.00 (+/- USD 630.00). It's 4 months old and still has shop warranty which I like. Regular prices for reference 780 Ti cards are around PhP 32,000.00 (+/- USD 720.00) I've been reading W1z's reviews and it seems the 780 Ti is the better option, power consumption wise and performance wise. I mostly game and do some Photoshop although I used do dedicate my 7970 to WCG when there were still those GPU work units. I'd go for AMD if those WUs were still available although it seems they won't be coming back soon. I've been using AMD/ATi cards for as long as I can remember so I'm quite reluctant to change over to the "Green " side. Oh and my next upgrade after this will be 2560x1600 or 1560x1440 monitor although I guess it doesn't matter which card it's gonna be. So which, in your opionion, would be the better choice?
