So total tally is $680 for the GTX780 and $430 for the HD7970GE (58% price difference) all things considered or $650 for the 780 and $400 for the 7970GE (62% price difference) for a 20% performance increase. Pretty steep premium man...
This is excluding the many 7970 non GE edition cards which that can be found under $400 and still come with the 4 free games... either way, the 7970 is a tremendous value. Heck if anything i'd urge people considering a 7970 to get a non GE as they OC way better on average.

Anyone else find this interesting
On average we found the GeForce GTX 780 to be 24% faster than the GTX 680 and 16% faster than the Radeon HD 7970 GHz Edition when measuring frame rate performance. It was also just 14% slower than the GTX Titan and 29% slower than the GTX 690.
The frame time performance was a bit different as the GeForce GTX 780 was just 12% faster than the Radeon HD 7970 GHz Edition, but still 24% faster than the GTX 680 and 10% slower than the GTX Titan. Those figures certainly make the GeForce GTX 780 look pretty powerful and these are the kind of gains we would normally expect from a next-generation product that is showcasing a brand new architecture.
Seems the HD7970 actually gets closer to 780 performance when you stop looking at raw FPS and look at the frametimes. Performance difference shrinks from 16% to just 12% lol. AMD beating Nvidia at their own game hahaha, can't wait for those June drivers to put CFX back on the map
