Depends on the rest of your PC.
What are the rest of your specifications? Dual/Tri monitor setup or single?
What resolution do you wish to play on? Are you intending to migrate to 4K monitors for gaming?
Do you intend to SLI?

It depends on what you're willing to spend. The ti is obviously better, but it depends on what you want. I think I'd personally get the 780 now and then in two years or so when the price goes down, SLI another one.

Hey,

What is your budget?
What games do you plan to play and what is your resolution?
Also what are the specifications of the rest of your system?

It all depends on several factors, if you could answer the questions above we can better help you out. Overall, the Gtx780Ti is better, however it may not be necessary depending on what you plan to do.

Hope this helps!

I would go with the Ti if you can. Everyone says there's no way you need the 780 Ti if you game on 1080p single monitor, but that is wrong IMO. I recently got the 780 Ti and quite honestly I was a little disappointed with the performance. I was expecting it to CRUSH any game in 1080p but there are a few situations where I've dipped into 40-50 FPS range. Usually it's only in WoW, which apparently has a terrible graphics engine, but still. It is NOT overkill for a 1080p single monitor setup.

But what other components do you have. If your other components aren't good, then they'll bottleneck the gpu.

Intel Core i7 4770K Samsung 840 EVO Series 120GB SSD
Seagate Barracuda 1TB ST1000DM003 up

In that case, go for the ti if you can afford it, your other components are good enough that they won't bottleneck it, and I think it will complement the i7 4770K very well.

ok well with a 780 Ti and i7 4770K it is $2790 now I herd a lot of people say when your spending over $2500 you start going into where you spend more money but only get 1-2% increase in performance will this be the problem here????

$2790 seems a bit high for that build tbh. You must have put a lot of extra money into some other areas of the build, so you can't necessarily say at X amount of money then the gains are small. You could have spent $800+ just on storage, for example.

There is more than a 1-2% difference between the 780 and 780 Ti.

I think I'd go with the 780 now; it should handle most games at ultra settings, and then in a couple of years, you can get a second 780, and two of those is better than one 780ti, so your final product will be better in that scenario. And yes, I believe all new nvidia cards are G-sync ready.
