Last time i tried to Over-volt my 570, it nearly blew up !!! aahahah, na, just kidding.

basically, the EVGA ACX has the higher clocks, right from the get-go, then the ASUS. But then noise, temperature, overclock-a-bility, comes into play.

I just assumed Asus were more quieter, and better for long term. If i can get anywhere around 1170 or so on either card, at stock voltage, I'll be set, but just for the assurance, i would probably like to have the option of increasing voltage as best/safe as possible, while getting the most out of my card on air.

So what do you think, can either one hit 1150 or so on stock voltages?

should ignore out of the box clocks imo tongue.gif both cards on the same volts will overclock similarly, you could easily get 1150+ on either card unless you get the biggest dud card in the world tongue.gif

the evga ACX cooler is pretty quiet, i havent used an asus 780, but if its like the 7970 dcu2 cooler, then it is also really really quiet.

the major difference is, if you ever decide you want more voltage, then you would have to go with the evga card.

and if for whatever reason you have to rma your card, evga's rma/support team is seriously the absolute best.

Yap, Szeged is right! Go for the EVGA!
I only went for the ASUS because i got them at importers price (less 23%), the first one i got it here at OCN, the other 2 got them here! smile.gif
Otherwise i would go for EVGA, i worked with them (Germany) for 5 years and never had a complaint! thumb.gif

Cheers

Yo I just Pulled the Trigger guys LOL. Forget Black Friday, The time to act is NOW !!!!

EVGA 780, got the instant $15 rebate, and a $10 rebate from them through mail

$10 promo from yesterday that i used,

Got a Toshiba $3tb Hard Drive as well for under $100 ($45 instant saving Slick Deals had it on front page)






GTX 780, 3 games, and a 3tb hard drive for under $580.

And if the $25 code stacks, everything for $550.


SOUNDS GOOD TO ME BROS. Can't wait to plow Arkham origins and AC4. Thanks szeged and also everyone else who helped me out.




Now i need to sell my GTX 570, how much should i put it up for on e-bay?

Hey guys. I just purchased an EVGA 780 SC w/ ACX cooler from Newegg. They have a crazy good deal going on for it right now. It was either between this card and the r9 290 (non-x), but I figured that the 780 is the better deal right now, especially this particular one from EVGA, considering the r9 290 reference is rumored at a $450 price point. I don't really see how the 290 could be better than this card, so I went ahead and jumped on it. Question though, I saw some people talking about a $25 Newegg credit going on for today, am I supposed to receive some confirmation that I got the credit?

It's a good deal but I would've waited for the 780ti, The price likely to be where the 780 was before price drops and it is likely to include free games aswell. 2880 cores and 7GHZ memory confirmed at this point so it's IMO a no brainer if you are waiting to pull the trigger.

While a good deal I would've waited, the 780ti has been confirmed to have a full GK110 core (2880 cores) with stock 7GHz memory, It will likely be the price the 780's were before the price drop and will likely come with free games aswell.

I just exchanged my 4GB 760's (I got them for 600$ over a month ago) at Microcenter for two of these. Ah, I love Microcenter.


I got one for 485$ and the other for 375$ because they were both open box and one of them came with no accessories (the other one was in utterly perfect condition with all accessories, stickers, and even the poster). I'm kind of surprised at how hot they run but since they both seem to at least run as expected. I might need to figure out a way to keep them cool while SLI-ing, but I'm pretty darn happy for the price since each of them are a bit worse than my 760's in SLI.

I think these will last me a long time in 1440p gaming, so I think I'll sign up on this club... when I get home from work anyway.
