Which GTX do you prefer (x60, x60ti, x70, x80, x90) and why?

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
Just want to get a feel for peoples gtx lineup preferences, historically, and the reasons for those preferences. I've always been a x70 kinda guy for the out of box price/performance.
Are x80s better value when overclocking? Are the x60tis king for water cooling? Etc...

GTXx70 due to the performance for the price, especially with Kepler.

Well, I'd say x80. I'm VERY happy with my 780 which is the only Nvidia card I've ever owned. So I haven't got much knowledge about the previous series from nvidia.

I always buy an x80. GTX 280 x2, Had a GTX 580, GTX 680, and now a GTX 780.Once you have a x80. unless you wait 2 years to update you cannot upgrade to a x70 or x60 card, the performance will be the same

I'd never spend more than $300 on a GPU, the price performance ratio just becomes pretty bad after that, I'm looking at you GTX 680!
