Take Your Pick: 2x 780ti vs 2x 290X

I'm building a new "overkill" gaming PC in about a day and I want to make sure I'm getting the best of the best. I will be gaming at 2560x1440 (and possibly higher resolutions) in addition to video editing and various other work-related tasks.

CPU will likely be a 4770k, although I may decide to go with a 4930k. I will not be doing any overclocking.

2x ASUS Graphics Cards R9290X - [$1198]

2x EVGA GeForce GTX 780 Ti Superclocked - [$1460]

Which boat are you in?

    ^+1 only thing bigger is the titan blacks easily another $500 though and not that much of an upgrade
  5. If water cooling - r9 290x crossfire
    If stock - 780ti.
    Noise means a lot, but water cooling should fix the r9 290x.
    780Ti is faster than the r9 290x if i remember correctly.
  6. 2x EVGA GeForce GTX 780 Ti Superclocked definitely, as a bonus you won't have to run your AC as much while you game.
  7. the main think in titan black is the support of massive mathematical operation support . more suitable for research kind of stuff .but 2 780ti will kill titan for sure

    Definitely the
    Titan = 780 With extra Vram Slight stock clock bump
    Titan Black = 780Ti with extra Vram slock clock bump

    I wasn't advocating the switch just pointing out that the 780TI was as large he should go unless he really doesn't like his money. In which case I am up for donations! :D
  9. appreciated . . . :-)
  10. My vote goes to 2x 780Ti!!!
