GTX 780 vs GTX 780 Ti...

#1Logical_OnePosted 11/8/2013 5:10:29 PM
Is that extra $200 worth it? I'm being forced (wife) to sell my GTX 770 to my brother-in-law (at a ridiculous price--$175 for a GB Windforce) so I figure I'll upgrade. ATM I'm at 1080p but I plan on buying a 1440p monitor VERY soon (maybe even while I order the card).

I've looked at all the reviews and although I find the Ti alluring, I'm not sure that I can justify the $200 difference.

Any input would be appreciated.

If you can afford, it's about ~20% faster. You can decide if that's worth $200 to you. I got my 780Ti today and love it. It's destroying any game I can throw at it. Playing at 1080p 120hz.

Yeah, I noticed it literally ROFLstomps anything at 1080p. If I get the 780 Ti I may hold off on the monitor for a couple of weeks LOL.

20% faster for 40% more. That's actually not a bad return at the high end. If your budget allows for it, I'd go for it.

I think I'm going TI in the next couple of weeks. I should be able to get about $300 for my 680 so only $400 will come out of pocket.

seems like a waste to not have a 120hz or 144hz monitor with it

Like I said--I'm planning on buying a new monitor either with it or soon after.

can I ask why your wife is forcing you to sell your card for well below what you could get.
