I see that the MSI GeForce GTX 780 Lightning Release Date is the 7th of August...this should prove interesting. I was considering the MSI's Gaming version, but I may wait until the 7th to see what comes out. Maybe they'll offer another special LN2 version?
In any case, I'll hold off on the 780 purchase until about the 10th to see what transpires with the Lightning...
Might as well, I'm doing the same, want to see what they will be capable of since the real-deal TC doesn't start back up until September I guess.
