I am waiting for 800 series or newer cards (Titan Black ect.)

Main reason? Vram. The 780ti is enticing but I am now downsampling from 1800p and preparing for 4k res. 3GB is just not enough and is the one true bottleneck of that very powerful card. I will not buy a new GPU until I can get a high end card with at least 5GB Vram.... 2 other requirements. 1) it has to be Nvidia 2) I'm not paying almost $1000 for a Titan.

The BEST thing to do is to OC the hell out of your CPU and video card then have it die on you by the time the 800 series come out.

You will want a new mobo anyways to take advanage of PCI-3 with the 800 series which might have better advantage of the bandiwdth

Or not, and just sell it when the time comes. Better to make $20 (TC could get more) on the card then kill it. Or, just keep it as a backup card.

Either option is preferable to what you suggested.

there is *always* something better coming. Even if you wait for the 790, There will be something newer coming and you'll be in the same position. Wait, or buy now.

Just buy the 780.

Another option preferable to killing your parts.
