I wasn't aware of that. Thank you for the info.

That is absolutely amazing compared to how my card is overclocking.



Then it's a no-brainer. OP should definitely get a 780Ti.

Maybe! But it's up to the op now, the 780 Classy could certainly be a fun card to play with.smile.gif

Since the classified is back at 430£ I think i'll get that one.
Regarding getting the game you get from scan.co.uk and also overclockers.co.uk. I definately wouldnt mind getting that free game, but I dont really know them. I've only had good experiences with amazon if i ever needed to return anything (I live in Spain, but the spanish version of amazon is meh compared to co.uk).
What would you recommend?
Also overclocking has never really been a thing for me, i have a friend who used to / still do overclock, but i remember him losing alot of cards to artifacts after a while being OC'd. So i've never really dared to OC myself since i wont be able to buy a new card if that would happen to me. Am I being paranoid?
Also what sort of watercooling is the best to go for IF I would try out overclocknig?
Thanks
Up to you which card to get, certainly the 780 Classy is an excellent card. But you have to be willing to work with it to get the best out of it.
That's why many of the replies here, from a 780, 780 Classy, 780 Ti, and Titan owner, all recommended a 780 Ti.smile.gif
More power to you if you're wanting to learn about overclocking and water cooling, this is the right place.thumb.gif
Have a look at the Nvidia threads for the 780's, and the water cooling threads for some great information.

As you're in Spain, you may want to ask kcuestag, who is a moderator here, about info. for where to get your card and shipping.

I agree, it is fun to tinker with the settings and get a better overclock. But to be very honest, I am a bit tired of trying to get a high, stable overclock. It's been eight months since I first got the card and I still don't have a rock hard overclock that is stable under any given situation.

@OP: I strongly recommend that you get the 780Ti. 1300MHz at 1.212v (like someone here mentioned) is absolutely amazing. Besides, even common sense dictates that you get the better card, which in this case is the 780Ti.

It gets frustrating trying to get a stable overclock after a while is all I'm saying, so that you know what you are getting into and can make an educated decision.

Good luck! Enjoy the card! smile.gif

Probally best off sticking with Amazon UK then or if you got a good retailer in Spain to buy from?

I bought an EVGA GTX 780 Classified from Scan yesterday, I would of bought from Amazon but I wanted the free game. EVGA have really good warranty service anyway if I needed to use it, I don't usually keep my cards longer than a year anyway.

Seen as you don't like overclocking yourself, I would look at the highest clocked card you can get, I nearly bought the Gigabyte GTX 780 WindForce 3x "GHz Edition - Core: 1019MHz.

Some good advice on here, so I would listen to them. I would of bought a 780 ti myself but having bought a Gigabyte GTX 780 WindForce 3x on release day back in May 2013 for £570 and seeing the price drop around £200 within a few months it kinda put me off buying the latest and greatest.

If money isn't an issue and you have the cash to splash/waste/blow then go for the ti?

Just damn you all getting me hooked on the TI version smile.gif


So i've been looking at these two cards mainly:

EVGA 780TI Classified:
http://www.amazon.co.uk/EVGA-NVIDIA-780Ti-Graphics-DVI-I/dp/B00H918EFG/ref=sr_1_6?ie=UTF8&qid=1389957166&sr=8-6&keywords=EVGA+gtx+780+TI

780TI SC:
http://www.amazon.co.uk/EVGA-NVIDIA-780Ti-Graphics-Cooler/dp/B00GPVKXD2/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1389957166&sr=8-1&keywords=EVGA+gtx+780+TI

The TI I linked at first: (Probably the one I will get if I decide to OC wtih watercooling).
http://www.amazon.co.uk/EVGA-GeForce-Graphics-Express-Display/dp/B00GJLSAL0/ref=sr_1_2?ie=UTF8&qid=1389957166&sr=8-2&keywords=EVGA+gtx+780+TI



Question 1:
Of the Classified and SC the Classified is definately the card to go for since its 1020MHz vs 1006MHz on the CS?

Question 2:
If I get either the Classified or the CS, would it be wise to get watercooling and OC further?



These will be the last questions I'll ask in this thread. Thanks for all the great replies. I'll definately take a serious look on OC and watercooling on this forum.

Don't bother with the SC version. It's exactly the same as the reference card but with a higher base and boost clock. You can achieve the same results yourself.

The Classfied would be an option for water only. It does allow for extra voltage which doesn't work well with air after 1.25v.

I agree with both points.

Looking at your linked prices for those 780 Ti's, the cost does go up quickly, when you go from the reference EVGA 780 Ti to the Classy:
EVGA 780 Ti reference: 567.53
EVGA 780 Ti SC ACX: 616.05
EVGA 780 Ti Classified: 692.49

You should seriously consider your budget, especially if you are considering a Classy. The Classy is quite a different animal from the reference and SC ACX cards you listed, and I agree with mcg75 that that it would best be water cooled.

If I were buying a Classy now, I would rather wait and get the Kingpin Edition which will be out soon:
www.evga.com/articles/00813/

Water cooling is great, but a decent loop isn't cheap, and requires a fair bit of effort to build and maintain. I really recommend reading up on it in the water cooling forums and checking out some of the water cooled build logs here, to learn what kind of cost and effort is involved, and whether it's for you or not.

If you stick with air cooling for the time being, either of the other two 780 Ti's would do just fine with some reasonable overclocking, as I realize that you can get some very high ambient temps. in Spain.smile.gif
