290x or wait for the 780ti classified. Buying a 780 right now would not be the greatest investment

OP, I'm only posting these because of false information in an earlier poster's avatar.

http://www.3dmark.com/3dm11/7380927

That's a 290x @ 1150 mhz scoring 4708 gpu points in 3dmark11.

http://www.3dmark.com/3dm11/7384384

That's a 780 @ 1320 mhz scoring 5616 gpu points in 3dmark11.

Both taken from the gk110 vs Hawaii bench thread.

This is why I said to wait for more information.

Look at the avatar of poster #2 in this thread.

It's says a 1359 mhz 780 equals a 1150 mhz 290x in 3dmark11.

It may be true for the cpu bound 720p preset for but the 1080p extreme preset my 1320 mhz 780 beat the 1150 mhz 290x by over 900 gpu points.

What does this mean? Not much because 3dmark11 always seemed to run better for Nvidia anyway.

It does mean his avatar is false information on OCN.

If we are talking stock 290x then I'd vote Classified 780. However I would grab a good aftermarket 290x with a better cooler over the 780 any day. The stock 290x just seems like great tech that was cheaped out on at the last minute. The Classified is a well thought out beefed up card with quality components. Is it a bit overpriced though? Yes.

On a custom water loop.

780 classies.

Why?

becouse we dont have enough info on what an average water cooled 290x can do. if its reference performance is anything to go by OC vs OC, i think the 780 will still nudge ahead slightly.

BUT

Price:Performance .. R9 290X hands down. Also remember that the 290x has 1gb extra VRAM which may or may not help at 4k if ur going there.

I think not having enough info on what the 290x can do under water is enough of a reason to wait it out, rather than buy a 780. Even more so because the ti is right around the corner. People who are making purchases of 780s or 290x right now are doing so because they have their reasons, but if you are indecisive, waiting is the best idea to make the choice.

I should mention I have a 290x with a waterblock, so im one of the people who didn't wait biggrin.gif

a GTX 780 needs 150 - 200 mhz to match a R9 290X. so its a no brainer to get a R9 290X given the classy is 150 dollars more . with watercooling 1200 - 1250 mhz is quite easy. gibbo of ocuk hit 1.2 ghz on a ref r9 290x with a prolimatech mk-26 cooler and a custom BIOS which unlocks voltage.

Obviously with EK waterblock

Me too... probably I can't wait anymore.
But what are you waiting for?, let me see some bench results biggrin.gif
A 780ti Classified will arrive late, too late for me.

Wait for 780ti, you might as well wait, wait and wait some more.
