acx will be cooler, which will help if you do sli. you won't need to SLI, by the time the ti's are at a reasonable price the current cards will be so much better.

BUT for 1080p they are overkill.

It's not overkill for some games however. Whether it's worth the cost is a different story.

Metro 2033/LL, Crysis 3, Far Cry 3 and several other games will run better on the GTX780Ti slightly than on a GTX780.

Those same games run pretty nicely on a GTX770 as well though you really need to know how to TWEAK the quality settings to maintain a good frame rate.

The other issue is this is for THREE YEARS, and since some games already can't run at 1920x1080 @60FPS max settings on a GTX780 it's certain an increasing number of future ones won't.

I bet Witcher 3 is going to be a beast...

My advice is get the GTX780Ti with ACX cooler, but if you're really unsure if the price is worth it get the GTX780 with ACX cooler (967MHz model if the price is right).

witcher 3 will be a beast. Yes three years, it makes it tricky, i'd save the £200+ and get a 770, and then get a second one in 18 months.

my cpu is gonne be the i7-4770K
so its better to take a normal gtx 780 and in a year or so put the nexst one in it ,

the 780 and 780 TI is like €140 difrance,
evga
GeForce GTX 780 Dual FTW w/ ACX Cooler (03G-P4-3784-KR) €499
GeForce GTX 780 Ti Superclocked w/ ACX Cooler(1006 MHz) €699

or

GIGABYTE
GIGABYTE GV-N780OC-3GD 954 MHz for €469

and is my performance better like a year of 3 im upgrading with SLI

the last card you mentioned is 230E cheaper, you'd be able to get a second 780 in less than 12 months for 230E. If your PSU can cope.
