  1. the gigabyte is a slightly better model. the asus uses a voltage locked digi+ asp1212 controller while the gigabyte uses a ncp4208 voltage controller which is unlocked and will allow the card to overclock farther. as far as cooling and noise the asus is slightly quieter and runs slightly cooler. if i could only choose between those two models i would take the gigabyte.
  2. Other than those 2, which one would you buy?
  3. evga classified then the msi lightning.... then whatever is better priced between evga, msi, or gigabyte. but honestly if your not going for a heavy overclock there is nothing really wrong with the asus. but i wouldn't buy one that wasn't from one of those 4 brands
  4. I see.

    I'm really not a fan of MSI, so I'm not interested in getting any component from MSI.

    As for EVGA, I don't know enough about them. I've always had ATI cards and EVGA only makes Nvidia models.

    Are they really that good?

    Would EVGA GEFORCE GTX 780 TI DUAL CLASSIFIED W/ EVGA ACX COOLER 3GB GDDR5 PCI-E 3.0 be the best choice?

    How does it compare to the Asus and Gigabyte ones? And how does the cooler perform?

    It should be noted that this EVGA card is at least +100€ than the others.
  5. the classified is by far the best 780 but its really designed for overclocking and you would never see the limits of the card unless it is put under water with a custom bios and a voltage softmod.

    evga is legendary as far as their quality, warranty, and customer service.

  6. That's the 780, not the 780 Ti
  7. same idea just the ti versions have the full gk110 with a slightly higher voltage limit... the ti is going to overclock better and obviously be noticeably faster.
  8. Best answer
    The EVGA GTX 780 Ti Classified Kingpin http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00JLU1YF0 definitely get's my vote!
  9. the only way i would recommend the kingpin is if you absolute are going to get an ekwb block and a decent 240 rad and d5 pump so you can actually run the card above 1.5ghz 24/7 the way it is meant to be pushed.
