What I should buy (same prize).
Two GTX 780 lightnings Vs Two GTX 780 classified .....is very difficult to me!!!
Wich of this "top of the top graphics card" is better constructed in terms of PCB / temperatures / Oc...etc
Are the "new" batchs of 780 lightnings with Samsung or Hynix???
In terms of construction they are pretty similar, good coolers & strong PCBs.
Looks like the newer Lightnings are using Hynix memory, although cards with Elpida may still be on shelves & in warehouses, newer Classified are generally Hynix or Samsung.
If looking to overvolt heavily, the Classified does 1.35v in software & needs the evbot to go over 1.35V, the evbot is getting hard to find if you don't have one.
Lightning can still overvolt in software.
In short, depends on what you are after, classified has better chances at getting strong overclocking memory, lightning may (depending on evbot with classy) do better with core overclock if you are looking to push the voltage.
