True, how kuch is the step up going to cost you?

I'm on my cell so I can't see your "sig rig"

What resolution do you play at? There will certainly be a difference between the two cards. Not game breaking differences, but superficial ones like having 4xMSAA enabled on the 780 Ti versus 2xMSAA on your current card.

I'm on a nice 27" 1440p.

I guess when I think loosely of numbers and knowing the 780 was a gimped titan, and a 780 ti outperforms a titan...that it has to be a decent gain between the two cards.

But I think for the resell aspec down the road makes it worth it.

Yeah true. Just wait abit since you have ~50 days to decide on the proper model and maybe even price

As far as going from 780 Classified to 780Ti Reference ... that's the debate I'm having with myself.

It will cost me $120 to upgrade my Classy to a Ti Reference, and in reality, I would only do that if I drop another $120 on a water block. So the question remains ... will going from a 780 Classy that OC's on air at 1293MHz to an a faster, yet slightly less beefy Ti on water really be worth the added cost and hassle?

a 1293mhz 780 TI would be nice tongue.gif Upgrade to it and call it a year!

I'd consider stepping up if they make a 780ti classy and uses the same pcb as the 780 classy so I wouldn't have to change waterblocks.

They are going to make that ... only problem is, you can't step up TO a Classified, only to a Reference.

And in all honesty, that card will most likely be $800 and won't be worth it, in my opinion. Not this close to Maxwell.
