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)


Damn iam sure you are very happy, the 780Ti seems to be an amazing card, but for now it is too expensive for me.

It's very nice and maintains around 1200mhz boost clock and does not throttle down. Temperatures at about 78c with a custom fan curve. The only big negative is the price point :/

Right now that would be the only negative for sure. But you got a freacking beast card for that though. Whats your setup? resolution, one monitor?

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.


The stock overclock is not the reason people should be looking at buying this. The far superior power delivery system is.

an i7 2600k @ 4.6ghz. 8GB ram, 500GB Samsung Evo. 27" 120hz 1080p display
Basically i just want to play my games at 120 fps when ever possible.

I upgraded from a Gigabyte Gtx 680 with the windforce cooler.

The reference cooler is a little bit louder at high speeds but it's better then i expected and I am running a custom fan curve and overclock :)
