Return unused R9 280x for GTX 780?

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
I am in the process of building a second rig and would like to ask a general question:

My CPU will be the 4770k and the R9 280x is already in transit. However, I have free return shipping with Shoprunner. I do a lot of video editing with Adobe Premiere and AE. I bought the 280x for $290 new and was considering picking up the GTX 780 for around $530 new. Thoughts? I won't get the GTX 770 due to its memory bus and 2GB VRAM. I'm also looking to future-proof.

Premiere supports OpenCL these days, but certain stuff in AE still requires CUDA, such as ray tracing (though you can still get *some* stuff accelerated just using OpenCL). So, if I were you, I would definitely go for the 780 if you can afford it. Not to mention that it's generally around 30% faster than the 280X. It obviously carries a much steeper price however.
