Im just seeing what the pc crowd would rather buy, both cards are neck and neck in comparison. Id personally go witht eh classified as well but im just curious to see who would buy what.

Depends. Are you a super hardcore overclocker looking to push a 780 beyond it's limits? Lightning, for TOV.(which I'm pretty sure goes over the standard max voltage for kepler) Otherwise? The EVGA card has a higher factory OC, and is probably better binned. 780 isn't really bound by power-target like most Kepler cards are.

OMG, that card is is such a ripoff. lol
Get 2 770's or a titan. At least then you are getting your full money's worth. That's twice as much as 2GB 770. Lol at it having twice as much power.

MSI, unless (I don't know to what) you're planning to use the step-up program with Evga.

There are certainly diminishing returns for graphics cards as the price increases, and I don't think the 780 is in a good place from a price/performance perspective. As another poster said, two 770s (or even two 760s) in SLI would outperform the Titan, and handily outperform the 780, for less money. If you only have 1 PCIe slot, I guess you are stuck with a single card though, unless you get a new mobo.
