Nvidia fans, you should thank AMD for forcing the issue on price. IMO Nvidia was overcharging for the 780 at this stage in its life cycle.

I love competition. It's a win for consumers. No doubt about that.

All this was to be expected, maybe not to the degree it is happening, but it was predicted ... from the R9 290X being faster than the GTX 780, to the announcement of the GTX 780Ti, to the price drops on the GTX 780, etc.

As far as nVidia "overcharging" for the 780, I disagree.

Price is what the market will bear. People were paying it, and willingly. Thus, they weren't overcharging. But don't get me wrong, I am happy for the price cut.

I just don't know which way I want to go with my gaming upgrade. A couple weeks ago, I was thinking dual GTX 780's. then I was toying with the R9 290X until the heat, power, and not much of a performance difference (ie 9%) numbers showed up, then I was thinking GTX 780Ti for lower power, heat, noise, and 10% performance over the R9 290X. Now with the price cut to $499 to $519 for an EVGA GTX 780 with ACX cooler ... I am back to thinking 2 GTX 780's. But then again, the GTX 880's will be here in less than 6 months.

No matter what I do, I see me swapping my 2 GTX 580's over to my wife's computer very soon. wink.gif

Grab a pair of classy's and in 10-12 month's replace them with 880 classy's. Simple plan for me lol.

$699 is a silly price since it's essentially an OC'd Titan which we already know the 290x trades blows with, yet Nvidia somehow feels they can charge $150 more over the 290x.

And of course, people will buy it in droves which is why they can charge these silly prices.

As for the 780, the 290 will be a better deal at $449 since leaked benchmarks have it 5% slower than the 290x.

With that said, this is the result of competition. I'm glad AMD shook up the GPU industry so now everyone gets cheaper high-end cards.

if it is a 2688/2880 core card that is allowed non reference pcb, you will be seeing most of my titans up on the market here or on evga.com market lol, i would be all over a classified 2688/2880 core card like pimples on a 13year old.

If this is a 2880 core fully unlocked GK110, I'm pulling the trigget the very second the cards shows up at my retailer. If just a titan refresh, i'll point a middle finger to nvidia and get myself a 780 with 3 games at 499 $ which is AMAZING value right now.

Its a good time to be a enthusiast amd be in the GPU market. Both camps must be pretty satisfied right now!!

AMD price to performance causing nvidia to price drop agressivly as well as bundles!! This is how it should always be

Well, this certainly makes my decision tougher. I missed out on all the damn 290X's that were available during launch... Nothing like pressing the process order button and being returned to an empty cart. Though, I'm interested to see how the non-X 290 will fare, so maybe it's a good thing.

GTX780's with 3 good games at $500 ain't bad at all. Then I think the 780Ti is a little above my budget for a single GPU, especially considering I'd need to water-block it.

Hmm, decisions... 780 @ 500
................................. 290 @ 450?
................................ 290x @ 550

Damn-it.

Damn-it.

If you were considering the 290X, then you might want to look at the 780 Classified. Almost all of them come with ridiculously good clocking cores, and because of samsung ICs, their memory generally clocks to the moon, essentially rivaling the 290X, even when both are over-clocked. And at almost the same price, its your closest performer to the 290X.

the way i see it atm

780 reference with 3 games and $100 of shield = best price/performance atm

780 custom cards, good price/performance and are known to be good overclockers(classified)

290x great price/performance, less than 780 atm, but the performance could be through the roof and we just havent realized it yet. it hasnt even been a week since its release yet, so who knows.

if i were to grab one of these cards atm for purely gaming and not worrying about 3dmark/unigine/whatever, i would hands down grab a reference 780 card, overclock the hell out of it and enjoy my games i got with it.
