Is the 780 TI worth the extra $160 over the the cost of a non TI 780?

Or should I just get the 780.

Depends on the rest of your specs as well as the resolution you are going to be playing at.

How much do you value the feeling of superiority?

It depends on what you intend to do with it. But generally, I think you start paying more for smaller increases in performance as you buy more high end stuff. Is it worth it or not?

That depends on so many factors that it is hard to tell. I think that is more off a personal decision, depending on how much of a hardware enthusiast you are, whether or not you have a lot of disposable income, and things like that.

There is actually data available that might make your decision easier.

Almost the cost of a mid-range graphics card for another maybe 8-10fps depending on the game, doesn't seem worth it IMO.

You can still overclock the non-TI and reach TI performance range pretty easily.

Then you can overclock the Ti version and get even more...what's your point exactly?

He meant get the 780 --> OC it then u have a cheaper 780ti

Then again like u said, the 780ti is still stronger

Yes, the price increase does not match the performance increase.

You have to ask yourself if that performance is worth it to you though. Another factor is resolution. A 780 Ti will provide a decent boost in frame rate. However, at 1080p a 780 is already giving you great frame rate. Do you really need more on top of great? At 1440p, that frame rate boost can mean the difference between your game running at 50 fps and above 60 fps, which means massive screen tearing or no screen tearing if you use nvidia's adaptive vysnc. Screen tearing pisses me off so I'd say it's worth it. Although at that point you can eliminate the problem all together by going the expensive g-sync route.
