EVGA GeForce GTX 780 Classified worth it?

#1Rama_XPosted 11/24/2013 12:00:45 AM
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.

What do you guys think??

Just checked the classified 780, not worth it.

if you're going to spend that much i would recommend these 3 cards

asus 760 dual-gpu (faster than titan)
radeon 290x
geforce 780ti

i think it's nice

It's not worth it IMO, the factory overclock isn't high and most 780's will go higher.
The overclock process is very easy.

Or get a regular 780 Ti. They overclock nicely too.

Nice to know that it is not hard to overclock a gpu.

Most 780 can go higher though?
I was almost sold by this review: http://www.overclockers.com/evga-gtx-780-classified-acx-graphics-card-review/

Also the 780 Ti seems too expensive, since i can get the the 780 Classified for 550

This last part of this review explains very well the pros and cons i think:

http://www.guru3d.com/articles_pages/evga_geforce_gtx_780_classified_review,28.html

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.

About the dual 760 i dont want to use SLI. I want just one card at the moment.

I like that the Radeon 290X has 4GB of ram BUT at this moment it runs too hot (90 degrees damn) and too loud. Also i want a Nvidia card if possible.

And the geforce 780ti is too expensive in comparison.

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)
