Which GTX 780 should I get?

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
Hi

I've been looking around for a couple of days now at what GTX 780 I should buy and still have not made a decession. I'm liking the gigabyte windforce OC and the MSI Twin Frozr OC both have the same GPU clock speed at 954 so in theory should perform the same but which one is better. I've pretty much got just enough money for either one of them or should I save a little more money and maybe go for the EVGA superclocked ACX or the EVGA classified ACX or even a completely different GTX 780 all togther. Also how big are GTX 780's compared to the GTX 580 smaller or bigger.

General consensus:
Can't go wrong with a card from MSI, Gigabyte, ASUS, or EVGA.

Personal opinion:
I LOVE the reference (stock cooler) GTX 780 for the killer metal look and the glowing green "GeForce GTX". I don't plan on overclocking much and I couldn't care less about small performance difference margins

Common practice:
-Look at the best deals you can get
-Use your personal taste in aesthetics: Which card do you like best in terms of looks?
-How important is noise to you? Do you plan on extreme overclocking?

What you'll probably hear from many people on this forum:
1. EVGA has best customer service
2. EVGA Classified is a great card

Cool, I know alot of people prefer EVGA cards here but I think it could be between the MSI Twin Frozr and the Gigabyte windforce bothed OC'd it's intresting you mentioned the reference cards I thought many people preferd none reference cards because of their higher clock speeds. reference GTX 780's cards are a little cheaper in th UK but I dont think I'll go whith one. Also how big is a GTX 780 compared to a GTX 580.

As non-referencr cards have custom PCBs you'll have to check dimensions in a review

I'd go with the MSI N780 TF if you want the better looking card and the Gigabyte GTX 780 WF if you want the better cooling card. Both are great options and you really can't go wrong either way.
