The Palit Jetstream 780 or MSI 780 Lightning
Performs better than titan and they are in same price range...

same price range? msi lightning is $760... 290x is anywhere from $550 to $650 depending on which leak you listen to, no official price yet. Why not wait for a 290x lightning?

Oh so you know how much the 290X will cost?

And the 290X has more VRAM, a wider memory bus, and more ROPs.

MSI lightning is $770 on newegg. If you are going to spend this much might as well wait for the titan 2 I assume at the beginning of next year?

Can't find a price on the the Palit jet stream.

The 290X is beating the 780 in almost every benchmark leaked so far.

We won't know until the price becomes official. Then we'll know what kind of bang for your buck we'll be getting.
