Always, always, ALWAYS ask someone their budget and what they feel comfortable spending. I've helped people who have made $500 rigs and I've helped people make $3000 rigs, if you can't get your head around what they want or need, you're useless to them.

People can argue Crossfire 7970s vs 780 Ti all day long, but I do know people that will take the 780 Ti every day of the week for whatever reason of the day they come up with. (Xfire profiles are a pain, one GPU is easier, prefer nvidia, need cuda, whatever.) Why do I care? It's not like they're buying something that's going to die on them (See: cheaping out on PSU) or not going to offer features they will want later (few PCI-e slots or bad VRMs on motherboard), they're choosing between two good quality parts that isn't putting their build in danger.

Not that this will stop me from calling out people who will claim the 780 Ti (previously Titan) is the best card no questions asked hand down. 4k is a valid argument on OCN with people running Eyefinity, but there are certainly scenarios that the 780 Ti will win, and that's even before factoring in personal experience and bias. It is not a useless card.

Going to be interesting to see Mantle next month. Either we'll have people eating crow or saying I told you so. Some of us aren't on either side. wink.gif

Proffesionalism iniative really please read the post.
I just explained what Mantle will do for both sides and what extra for AMD.
Good for us because we may see a big die with gaming as purpose not as a tesla/quadro derivative.
