EVGA GTX 780 3GB Superclocked for $837 VS Titan $1,130. Which should I get?

I am from Ireland. I'm converting the currency to dollars since most users are from the US. These are the prices I am getting from amazon.co.uk. I know the US is a bit cheaper.

Should I get the EVGA GTX 780 Superclocked or the Titan for almost $200 more? I am leaning towards the EVGA GTX 780. People are saying the standard GTX 780 is close to the Titan in performance, so I reckon the EVGA GTX 780 Superclocked would be really close to Titan's level. I say a small bit of overclocking and it would be equal.

I have a single 1080p TV, so no higher resolutions than that. The TV is 60hz.

For only 1080p, a 780 is overkill. Go with a R9 280x, it should be much cheaper.

This is like telling someone that instead of eating a nicely seared tuna steak with some mango salsa, they should eat a crap sandwich with a side of toenails.

Yeah, not even close. Your fanboy is showing.

I've heard about Metro: Last Light needing a really powerful card for it with both full SSAO and advanced physics on. Plus The Witcher 2 is supposed to need a lot of power with everything on. (I heard uber sampling in powerful.)

That is why I think I need the 780. The Witcher 3 will be coming out next year, and I reckon that'll need a helluva lot of power to run at 60FPS maxed out.

Go with the 290X when it comes out instead. It's closer to the 780/Titan in performance, and will probably be cheaper than both.

I like physx and the Nvidia exclusive features. I don't want to make the switch to AMD.

That's really disappointing if true. We really don't need another SKU that performs within 5% of the 780/Titan.
