All of them look like great cards, but whenever I'm on OCN all I hear about is the lightning and the classified, people really don't talk about the HOF. The HOF is cheaper and can oc 1300+, but why is it not as popular as the others? After looking at the 9970 rumored performance i would rather just get a 780. Which one should I get?

classified is king right now until msi can sort out their massive array of problems with the lightning.

I certainly don't see what is wrong with the rumored 9970 specs, but oh well.
Now, to the 780's.
1) The Classified is extremely popular due to the reports of overclockers getting over 1400mhz on air and above on water. Fantastic card, so I have heard. Of course, there is the silicon lottery in play here, as always. Certainly a good choice among the 780's available. My only gripes about it is the lack of a backplate and also, there price increase to $729 to "compete" with the 780 Lightning.
2) The 780 Lightning SEEMS like an amazing card that once the problems with voltage control, power limit, etc has been rectified, it will be one of the best, if not the best, 780. The main problem with the Lightning is the lack of support for proper overclocking tools from MSI. This is also on top of MSI's horrible marketing for the Lightning, making people have a bad taste in their mouth about buying one and of course, that hefty $100 premium. I would watch and see what happens once the problems have been solved, because I'm sure it will be worth the extra cash.
3) The HOF has been getting great reviews. If you look through Newegg reviews(however reliable they are is questionable) people have been getting good overclocking. I've heard little to no complaints about it, other than it is voltage locked( I think). As to why it is not as popular, is mainly due to the anticipation of the Classified and the Lightning. Both are big names and a lot of anticipation is behind them.
If I were you, I'd wait and see how the Lightning fares once the problems are solved. If you are in a hurry, you cannot go wrong with the Classified nor the HOF.
Hope this helps. thumb.gif

im sure the HOF is a great card, personally havent tried it, i have however tried my two(now 3) classifieds, and all of them are just insanely good overclockers, my newest addition is elpida memory, which everyone says is a bad performer, keeps up with my samsung classifieds just fine. My friend just got his 780 lightning, we were doing a quick overclock/bench session with it head to head with my titans and classifieds, it certainly has potential but right now due to the lack of bios etc, it just cant stay up there with my classifieds, though always keep in mind he might have just gotten a bad one.

I'm a little biased towards Nvidia, all my cards have been nvidia. But if the 9970 is better then I will go with it. I saw a picture that said the 9970 would only have 2304 shaders, around a 300 shader improvement. 4GB VRAM, and a 384 bit. I don't think that will come close to titan level performance and those 3 cards, at stock clocks are as fast or faster than a Titan. I have time so I guess I will wait till the 9970 comes out to see it's performance

I have a Galaxy GTX 780 HOF and I have held the top single card score using an AMD processor since shortly after the release of the Galaxy HOF card: http://www.overclock.net/t/1361939/top-30-3dmark11-scores-for-single-dual-tri-quad
