I really like the EVGA Classified series. What are your thoughts on the purchase of a 770 Classified ($500) vs a GTX 780 ($650+). I am running a i5 4570k, crosshair formula z mobo with the idea of adding another card 3-4 months from now. I want the best performance for my dollar. Thanks guys.

GTX780 is very poor value for your money - not worth $150 extra. The GTX770 is better value (GTX760 better value still).

The 770 Classified is for people who plan on using LN2 or sub zero cooling. Its a total waste of money to most people. Look into 760 SLI if you really want to spend 500 dollars.

I also considered this as a viable option, but not until yesterday because of the 760 just getting released, I'm hoping for a Ti version soon. But I will admit the 760 in SLI is impressive

The GTX 760 is already the replacement for the GTX 660 Ti, I don't think there's going to be a "Ti" version of it.

I'm also in the same situation. I have a EVGA GTX 780 Superclocked ACX on order for £524.85, which is the cheapest I've been able to find it. I currently have a Corsair HX750 PSU.

I've just upgraded my monitor from an old 1440x900 screen to a BenQ XL2411T 1920x1080p 1ms 120/144Hz screen.

In the next year or so I'd either like to get 2 more of these screens or eventually upgrade to a 1440p monitor - if in the future companies like Asus, Dell, BenQ etc come out with a 120 hz model (I don't want catleap etc)

My choice would be to stick with the 780 for £525, go for 2 760's which are more or less the same as my current GPU (an MSI 670 Power Edition) which will cost between £420 and £450 or buy a 4Gb 770 which is about £480

I'd prefer 1 card over 2 but if 2 cards will beat 1 with a similar amount of power usage then would I be better off getting 2 760s also? I can still cancel the 780 as the company hasn't got it in stock yet (as according to EVGA they can't keep up with demand).

The games I play are mainly things like the Mass Effect series, DiRT 3, Star Craft 2, Skyrim (starting to heavily mod it again), Tomb Raider, Portal 2 and Battlefield 3 (not going to try multiplayer as I know I'm too slow for it)

My full rig =
i7 3770k + Asus P8Z77-V Premium Thunderbolt + Corsair H100i + 16Gb Corsair Vengeance 1600 (8-8-8-24) + MSI 670 Power Edition + Mushkin Chronos 120Gb sata 3 SSD + WD Caviar Black 1Tb sata 3 HDD. PSU = Corsair HX 750, case = HAF 932, Monitor = BenQ XL2411T

Well-played! Lately Dabs seem to be even better than Scan for graphics card prices. And these £10/£25/£40 off deals they do are excellent.
