I dont have interest in SLI and i will play on a single monitor at 1080p.
Also i know that this card is made for overclocking, but i dont know how, plus it wouldnt be necessary at all right now. But thinking in the future i guess that in 2 or 3 years when games start demanding more GPU power even at 1080p it will be nice to have the ability to overclock to keep up with newer games.
The biggest problem the guy has is the price and for ultimately not giving much of a performance difference with the normal 780 for that price. Though at the time of the review the classified was like 700 and now it is 550. And a normal gtx 780 is like 510. Thats why i thought it may be worth it now.
I think you'll be happy with the regular 780, they are really fast. I figured if you're willing to spend more on a super clocked card then maybe the regular Ti would be a better option.
Anyways, Msi with their Twin Frozor, Asus with DC2 or Gigabyte's Windforce are excellent choices when it comes to third party cards and coolers. In my opinion it really comes down to esthetics's and price. Those being the top 3 picks.
The reference design isn't bad either I have to say, quite good in fact (got my 780Ti a couple days ago)
