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

You don't buy a new video card until the new consoles have been out for close to a year so you can see how the current cards benchmark running the new games, and what the new cards have to offer.

Buying anything right now is a waste. Wait it out.

I just bought a 770, but if you have the money I would get the 780

Yeah, not even close. Your fanboy is showing.


I'll thank you to not refer to my genitals so colloquially.

There is a version with an ACX cooler, and a version without. How is the ACX cooler an improvement?

No single GPU is "overkill" for 1080p resolution as no single GPU can completely max every single game on the market. Those who have the money and want the absolute best performance will buy a single card that has the best specs... and even if there were a card that could completely max/60-120fps every single game @ 1080p, you also have higher requirements of games in the near future.

Buy the best you can comfortably afford if you want top performance. Personally, I wouldn't consider anything under a 4GB 770 or a R9 280X... and even then I would set those cards up for SLI or Crossfire in the near future.

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.
