I can't speak for anyone else but I would stick with Asus or EVGA. There are a lot of good cards, and I've owned just about every make, I think,lol.

Best overall performance with decent cooling in general has always been the non reference for me, though plenty of reference cards are just as if

not better at times.

The Asus DIRCU cards and the EVGA ACX cards run pretty good with no problems. They generally run pretty cool and quiet, unless being

stressed out. We don't do that here,... Yeah RIGHT! hehehe

The Gigabytes I had were pretty good cards, never had any issues, just this particular setup I guess.

Now if you throw in another bios, things change, but their cooling really is top notch if ur staying on air. It stayed cooler and quieter than the Asus,

but didn't oc as well. Luck of the draw!


Really they're all generally not bad, just some r better than others, no matter the manufacturer. Even then it's still luck of the draw..


Does anyone have an Asus ti? How does it run?

The above advise is pretty much NA only.
In europe EVGA cards are rare, and if they're there they're overpriced. You also get worse warranties, easily making them one of the worst companies to buy from in the EU.

ASUS cards are ( often ) very expensive compared to others.

Overall Gigabyte and MSI offer by far the best price/whatyouget ratio.

Other manufacturers are often more expensive than ASUS while offering less ( KFA, PNY, ZOTAC ).
Gainward does offer cards for a similair price as the ASUS, but that comes down to personal preference.
I honestly prefer Gainward, I like their phantom cooler a lot.

I, myself, have sworn to never ever buy an asus product.

You are joking right?
EVGA rare in EU? Worse warranties? Do you live in a country that have problems with Germany? I know that in Greece its hard to buy EVGA but its country trade related, not a company issue!
I have worked with EVGA for over 10 years in Europe and never had a complaint about anything, good supply of products, warranty always respected in every product and first class daily basis communication!
ASUS is another excellent company to work with, not as straight forward as EVGA but always with outstanding products and services, more expensive, yes but justified by the product!
I personally always had ROG products since its appearance and every time i had to RMA a clients card or board, never had a problem!
KFA, PNY, ZOTAC and Gainward on the other hand are a big headache in RMA!
Resuming: King of RMA policy worldwide: EVGA! Quality: EVGA, ASUS and MSI, Gigabyte is a good company but right now isnt what it used to be! All the rest are small re-brand companies that buy cards and put their names on it!
Research wise you only have EVGA, ASUS and MSI! thumb.gif

My 2 cents!

Let's see.
Gigabyte and MSI 780TI... 590€
ASUS 780Ti... 615€
EVGA ACX... 650€

I personally dislike ASUS for their ROG line, it's as if they're trying to promote really expensive items to somehow convince the not-so-tech-savvy people into buying them and raising the price bar to that level.
You don't even want to know how many times I've seen someone thinking ( and sometimes even actually having ) that they needed a maximus gene for their 4570.

EVGA in NL is somewhat disappointing. I'm not saying it's bad, but it's not as good as in the US, that's for sure.
I also strongly dislike fanboyism, what's EVGA all about.
Now, I'm not saying EVGA is bad, I've seen their ACX coolers do wonders, but I really want to raise some question marks whether it's worth the price premium you're paying for.

Well it really comes down to choice. If you spend a little more than you want, then by all means choose what you feel is best for you.

Asus, on the other hand, and I used to be nothing but Asus for mobos, and I love their cards!

In my limited experience with RMA, I told myself no more Asus boards. Outright accused me of damaging a replacement board when it was worse than the original.

Then for a replacement I get a refurbished board, aren't i Lucky. Funny when I bought a brand new board that didn't work properly Ihought I would get a brand new replacement. Think again!

I bought 2 new boards with the same problems and I'm still waiting to get my 2nd replacement. Told me to send my board when the replacement gets there. nothing.

Finally called, rma cancelled bcuz I never sent my board in!!! I don't know about anyone else, but I spent about $2000 on motherboards just for

myself last year and this is how I get treated. Told them straight out if they send me a bnib board, all is forgiven, if refurbed, well they can kiss my

butt. If I buy a board with their name on it it won't be new!!! Figures, rog iv rog iv black sabretooth r my current boards!

If you are accusing me of me being a fan boy you are way off, you are new here and dont know me, so its ok!
I am very known in every Titan/780/780Ti/Classified thread and one thing nobody can accuse me is being one, as when i post articles about anything im always impartial and objective about it as in my previous post i stated all the good companies that have feedback here in the forum (this forum has close to 370.000 users)
EVGA is clearly the best VGA company around, either in its products or by its support in RMA, you even have a EVGA hardware REP her at OCN to help you out in everything you need!
In Europe you can order directly from EVGA in germany straight to your house if you dont have a representative near by!
As for €€€€, yes its more expensive like ASUS but you get not only a good card but also the services, like all things in life, you want good? well you have to pay for it!
That goes for EVGA, ASUS, MSI and Gigabyte! EVGA has the advantage of being very good with RMA´s, primary NVIDIA partner, do research and come up with Classifieds and Kingpin cards!
ASUS and MSI are excelent in motherboards full of features and not very expensive, (often hardware will be more expensive in one country but cheaper in another, i find myself buying (different countries, even overseas) where its cheaper but with warranty, EVGA, ASUS, MSI again...)
If you dont know about all brands PCB´s and VRM´s, power circuits, voltage, amperage, wattage, mosfets, inductors capacitors, power draw calculation and volt mods, you have come to the right place and person, i can help you with all of that! Not only me but several very good knowledgeable users can too! and with time you will see a lot of guys with specializations in several things, we call them gurus! Shilka for PSU,s, Skyn3t (My Brother) for bios, Sean webster for storage etc... thumb.gif
Meaning: You could have not come to a better place in all the internet!
OCN FTW!!!!

This you can call me a fanboy! OCN fanboyism! thumb.gif

Yeah! i know ASUS stepped on the ball in the US a long time ago and still their policies are not the best! If they do not turn now, they will loose their mid segment share to MSI and Gigabyte! rolleyes.gif

I'm not a fan of ASUS either, EVGA all the way for customer service.

ASUS return polices are pretty limp and unclear. If they can get out of something, they will with regards to GPUS.

Also the VRMs on the reference gk110 ASUS cards seem to be the most limp. Both my Titans didn't last very long after 1.3v volts and not even for long periods. Other users have found the same. ASUS still make great products, don't mistake what I'm saying, but when it comes to NV GPUS I don't really think i would buy ASUS again just for how long it takes to blag a replacement for something when it is clearly in warranty.

Mine is the OC version (GV-N78TOC-3GD) and am experiencing the issues associated with the GHZ edition (which comes with the backplate). I've been reading around the internet and my case is not the only one (on the contrary, they both seem to be pretty unreliable models).

I'll tell people to avoid Gigabyte in the future.

is it normal to have a tiny amount of stutter?

I was looking at the credits in the walking dead season 2 episode 2 while they moved down the screen and noticed it stuttered the tiniest amount possible approx every second. It seems unnoticable, but it's bugging the hell out of me, as I swear I can see it in other games too.
