And run alot warmer to boot. Would much rather have a refined custom pcb model that runs cool and silent, over a reference model that is more expensive.
Also three games vs one game.
When the 290x's other models come out and if they are the same price as the 780's then yes a MUCH better buy. But for today, the 780 is the better buy and what I went with.
