[PCPer] MSI GTX 780 Lightning Review - Page 12

post #111 of 117
Looks and design alone where worth the extra premium for me over the Classy and HOF.

The card is just stunning all around,Included backplate,GPU reacter technology,over engeneered PCB,over engeneered cooling system,LED's every where.To me it should be put on display as a masterpiece but i will be sure to put it to good use.



Just waiting for it to arrive in Germany from back in the states!

In some games quad Titan scaling issues actually have decreased performance over 3 titan setups. Quad titans are however beastly in benchmarks as proven by Vega.

Speaking of which I'd rather get the HOF versus this.

I was originally thinking the same thing until two people reported their HOF failing and both provided pics with burn marks in the exact same spot.

Beat it in terms of what ?

From what I can see the Lighting has the strongest PCB and the best stock cooling.

A lot of hate for this card just because its priced a little higher when the extra features seem worth it at least to me.

I haven't subbed it in the valley thread but I have scored 3500+ with the 780 Lightning, it's comparable to the classies with memory that max out at ~ 1700mhz.
