I figured instead of starting a new thread, I would ask this question within this thread as a follow up. I thank you all that have answered my original questions and +repped accordingly. ^^

I wanted to spend around $600 per card. As plans go, I will be air cooling I know to start. I'm still learning about water cooling and debating when to take the push into water cooling and then after water cooling, overclocking the vid card

So for now, would it be a good choice to get the 780 TI reference without overclocking it, or get a 700 with a good aftermarket cooler on it and just start overclocking it on that?

Again, thanks in advance, just want to be informed before I make a purchase.

I'd recommend getting a 780ti classified. It's the best 780ti and later on if you want to watercool you can buy the block from EVGA. 600 dollars though, where are you getting even a ref 780ti for that price? They are 680-700$.

Huh, very nice. I definitely wish I would have bought those at that price instead of 290xs at 650$... Then again the 6gb models are coming out soon so that is probably why prices seem to be dropping.

Maybe wc that card if you are going for 1.3ghz clocks otherwise another 780ti will increase much more the fps than ocing
post #18 of 18
I was running a GTX 690 under water on a 1440p panel, as much as I loved that card it really wasn't cutting it with a lot of games (I like to max out settings).

Just switched to a single 780Ti Classified HydroCopper a few weeks back and the performance is on par (if not better) than my old 690, especially at 1440p
Seems especially obvious when playing games like Thief and Titanfall, where the higher VRAM, albeit only 1GB makes a world of difference.

Personally, I think you should grab the 780Ti classified and don't look back because you'll be more than happy with it at that resolution. thumb.gif

Just for reference:



Also have to take into account the 690 had a fairly large overclock as opposed to the 780Ti.

As for FPS, I usually manage to stay around 60 with a few barely noticeable drops in graphically intense places.
