is it worth upgrading fro a gtx 780 to a gtx 780 ti

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
my current build is a i7 2600k , cooler master v6 gt cpu cooler , 16gb ram , crucial m4 256gb ssd , ocz zx 850 power supply , and a evga gtx 780 sc acx . I just got my gtx 780 a week ago and I registered it on the evga web site so if I choose I can upgrade my card with in 90 days I just have to pay the difference . I have been looking at the gtx 780 ti sc acx card it will cost me around $270 extra with shipping and every thing . is it worth it to upgrade ? or would you take that money and put it towards a another solid state drive ? since I only have the 256gb ssd for boot drive and storage

The 780 Ti is 20% faster than a 780 clock for clock and will also overclock better on average than the 780.

I'm in step-up line as well. #109.

do you think the evga gtx 780 super clocked acx will be released before my 90 days is up I just got my card a week ago and do you know if evga is going to release a classified version

Personally, i don't think it's going to make your gaming experience any better unless you are gaming at 1440p or 4k. Even then, you won't be seeing the difference until a couple months down the road where that better OC capability might payoff and that's if maxwell isn't out yet.

For benchmarks, It makes more sense but only if you are into that sort of thing.

There's going to be a classified version. EVGA's rep already confirmed it here on OCN but I don't know when it's going to hit the market.
