What do you guys think, is it better to wait for the new maxwell based GeForce 800 series by Q2 2014 or go ahead with a 780 now? Prices always in mind**

It all depends what you have and if you can wait! Really if you are playing at 1080P then there is nothing the GTX780 can not handle.

Depends, when the next generation comes out, the price for the 780 will drop...

Well, I currently have a very old gpu but I was planning to use at 1920x1200 and not only gaming.
I am planning to do 3dsmax vray rendering which requires cuda.
Nvidia cuda roadmap puts maxwell way higher than the Kepler based gpu's so wondering if its worth the wait (also thinking about lowering current prices?)

Still uncharted territory and may well be worth the wait. Maybe it will reduce the Titan prices as well.

Buy the 780 and when the 800 series comes out sell!
