i can provide multiple links showing where all other non reference cards clock better than the asus card, though i am interested to see which links you have, mind sharing them? smile.gif

Here we go buddy:
Check results of both cards overclocked to their maximum limits.
Evga ACX SC 780GTX:

Asus 780 GTX Direct CU II:

Im assuming that each GK 110 chip is unique by itself, thus you cant always be sure that you can overclock the card to a specific level, also, almost all review sites mention that the asus card runs generally much cooler than their competitive including Evga. Test results show a difference of 1.9 fps which is insignificant anyways, Evga used to provide a life time warranty for their products; thats why they were popular, nowadays, they are pretty much an average card designer.

@DBaer
If I were you I would get a chaep AMD CPU and mobo, and then upgrade to haswell-e, you can sell them later for half of their price. I expect a total loss of 100$ Im not counting ram though.

Devil Hunter, that is not congruent with my mission on this rig at all, not sure why I would want to do that? I have no use for a less capable rig at all, not even for a day as I already have other rigs that are more powerful than that. Again, this project is to build the most powerful rig possible with money not being an impediment but also without spending a lot extra for no real gain (hence the choice between the 4930 and the 4970 as the 4930 OCed should perform in striking distance of the 4970 but for about $500 less). While this rig will be used for some gaming it is not its main mission.
