So I sold my 780 for a $350 loss (sold it for $450) and bought a Ti in November ($699 + tax + shipping + brokerage) = $800+
Counting my loss I paid around $1200 for my single GTX 780Ti
I did the exact same thing but I don't think it's fair to blame anybody but myself.
Nvidia brought us the 780 when they didn't even need a card to compete because AMD was busy with consoles.
Then when AMD finally gets back to work and bring the 290x, the 780 Ti was ready.
The Ti was not ready any earlier than when it was released. We know this because it's a B step chip and it wasn't appearing in any workstation cards before that either.
I'm all for calling Nvidia out on their high pricing but I'm not convinced it's fair to do so on their release dates.
