this all depends on how your current card is handling the games your playing. i just bought a reference 780 ti and i love the card (especially the green logo that lights up on top. lol) I say if you arent getting the fps you want in the games go for it. if you are and can hold out till the next gpu revision do that. Either way you'll be happy. The 780s are going down in price now i scored one brand new for 500. good luck and hope this helped!

What games do you like to play? And do you do it often?

The 590 is a good card for gaming still.

Spunky thank you for the answer it was really helpful..mam72 i play most of the games with good fps and with high settings except titanfall and 1-2 other games...My problem is the bottleneck from the sli and this is the main reason that i wanna switch to 780ti..My 590 is watercooled and overclocked and can handle most of the games even at very high settings..but the bottleneck gets me mad lol.

Many games already go over the vram limitation of a GTX 590, yeah I know it says its a 3gb card but only 1536mb of that ram is actually usable because the ram isnt shared.

The bottleneck is probably from VRAM limitations. Either way, i'd wait until maxwell.

Edit: DX12 might resolve the vram issue, they did say that was something they were working on.

You have any solution for the vram limitation? Most of the games doesnt have bottlenecks but some other games for example cod ghosts,titanfall and thief bottlenecking all the time even at 1920x1080.

Except the dx12 will not be supported by the 590 and even if it did by then games will be even more complex.

DX12 will be compatible with Fermi, Kepler, and Maxwell thus far.

OS and GPU support

One of the surprise announcements at the show is that Nvidia will support DX12 on every Fermi, Kepler, and Maxwell-class GPU. That means nearly every GTX 400, 500, and 600 series card will be supported. Interestingly, AMD isn’t necessarily following suit — the company has indicated that it will support DX12 on all GCN-based hardware, but hasn’t indicated if HD 6000 or HD 5000 cards will be included in that.

The solution is to either lower your in game settings especially AA or get a better card. I know back when I had a GTX 580 which uses the same 1536mb of vram games like BF3 would often exceed the vram causing intermediate stuttering and that was also at 1080p. Crysis 2 was another one which exceeded the vram.

We are at a place where 2gb min for 1080p is the min recommended vram for a gaming card at 1080p. BF4 and Crysis 3 both use a lot of it and soon we will have PS4 ports which will need the additional vram.
