Okay thats good to know because I read the exact opposite just the other day, I read that while it will be compatible it will not take full advantage of it. Anyway as I said before by the time DX12 surfaces games will be a good bit more demanding and a 590 isnt going to cut it.

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

I thought that DX 12 would resolve the cpu overhead, not affect how games and applications handle the VRAM (unless i misread what dx12 and mantle work)

OT: If you are feeling the need for it, it would be wiser to spend money on 780 rather than the ti, as that would still provide 90% performance of the ti, but at much lower price point not to forget a much needed upgrade from your current setup

Yes, it is going to be like DX11, and DX11.2 there will be some slight differences. However the main CPU, and the Vram benefits will carry over to older cards.

Dont even waste your time with the classified unless you plan on LN2

Mantle so far actually gobbles up a ton more vram than DX. Also I too suggest the normal GTX 780 since the performance is great and it would be a good hold over card till the next set of GPU's from nvidia come out.

Guys thank you all for the answers..I was thinking buying the evga 780ti classified and get some higher clocks and voltage by watercooling it..On the other hand i was thinking to wait for the vga 780ti 6gb to release or wait for the Maxwells...the bottleneck on some new games is so annoying and sometimes the games are unplayable cause of it...What you guys think i'll have to do?

Bro we have already told you what we think you should do to alleviate the problems. As for waiting for the 6gb 780TI why may I ask? are you running or plan to run multiple high res screens? because if not then you dont need to dump money into a 6gb 780TI. If you plan to get maxwell when it comes out then do as a couple of us have suggested and just get a GTX 780 for the time being which will still give you more than enough performance on a single 1080P screen until maxwell comes out. Save your money for the big guns dude.

There are plenty of games currently out which will present a problem for 1536mb of Vram. I know because I had a GTX 580 and I have plenty of games which were choking that card at 1080P. 2GB is quickly becoming the min recommended for vram. You can disagree if you like but I know better because as I said I had a 1536mb card and know all about the vram limitations when it comes to many modern games and that will of course only get worse over time with more demanding games which will eventually come out.
