Do you guys think this trade makes sense or is it absolutely nuts considering the stout engendering behind the lighting ?
Currently running a Silverstone FT03 case so within my given space constraints a dual GPU card does make sense.
It all depends if your going to add another 780 in sli later on. A 780 with custom water setup should easily outdo a 690. Im sure the 780 can be volt modded like 690 can through MSI Afterburner.
So only if your gonna push it past the 690 and intend on putting another in sli otherwise your undercutting yourself.
Stock 690 beats 780.
Watercooled and volt modded 780 beats a watercooled and volt modded 690 ( I think).My 690 is at 1267mhz on the core, i think the 780 could beat this. No point going sli with 690 as 2gb vram will be hit sooner in more games within next 12 months. I could be wrong on that however.

Only reason i do not go sli with 690 is because the 2gb of vram is slowly being maxxed out. At the moment at 2560 1440p its fine but maybe another 12 months it wont. It also depends on amount of in game aa that you use and more importantly custom aa which really kills the vram. Remember though at 1440p not as much aa is needed. Some people do not use aa at this resolution although i feel a small amount is needed personally.
Unless one is made out of money... then one can upgrade (pre-order) the Titan Z ....
although.. 3k for a gpu is not exactly bargain-bin money
For 3k they can keep there Titan Z.
For 3k id want something even more powerful than what Titan Z is for that kinda money.
