Hi,

I am considering upgrading from GTX 670 to 780 mainly for gaming and was wondering if there are any anticipated price drops for the GTX 780 card (ASUS)? Should I go with a Standard or SC version?

Thanks

Sounds like a waste of money to me. Unless your trying to pump some serious resolutions.

Then I would wait for the 800 series.

Any card from a x70 and up I never see the point in upgrading the next year. The returns are so diminished at that point.

When I upgrade from my 2 560tis I want to actually be blown away again by leaps in performance, not get 5 frames better in a game.

Which are largely unnecessary save for the occasional system crushing game like Metro and Crysis at that resolution.

My 670 plays both of those games at 1080p just fine.
