I derped. I just meant stock that's what the card does. I don't really have a choice to go with the 780 Classifieds though. Custom PCB = no current support for Liquid cooling (Besides EVGA's HydroCopper) I would love those, but I want to get a card now, and currently don't have a loop.
With Maxwell rumored to come out apparenlty in Q1, I don't even know what to do now. XD
I don't make a lot of money, but I make enough to be able to get some high end stuff after saving over a month or two. I guess I could always do a small custom loop for one EVGA HydroCopper until I can afford to do a full custom loop.
Decisions, decisions. To me, spending 1600 bucks on two cards plus the cost of a WC loop is quite a bit. I'd definitely have to get a card at a time, and upgrade slowly.
I'd end up paying more money, but I can get a classified waterblock later.
