Hi again, ive made a couple posts about choosing the correct monitor, correct build for my needs etc but ive made a monitor choice after much deliberation and its the Dell UltraSharp U2414H, a damn fine monitor if i do say so myself. It was like trying to find a needle in a haystack but i found it ! any users out there with it id love some feedback esoecially if your using a single 780 Ti and in a Triple Display Setup

But as the title tells, should i wait a couple weeks or maybe 2 months and hope the GTX 780 Ti 6GB version will come out and and purchase it along with my build or will the GTX 780 Ti 3GB be sufficient for Nvidia Surround with 3x Dell UltraSharp U2414H at 5760x1080 and be able to pull its weight in games like BF4, DayzSA, titanfall etc

Since i intend to purchase my build via DinoPC a well respected website with thousands of positive reviews (and no i dont trust myself to overclock a £1500 machine, yes i could put it together but id like to put it to the max with overclocking), for their price as well, it really is a bargain with their spring sale atm it will come to roughly £1735, £50 if i decide to go 1000W if i choose the 780 Ti 3Gb i might go SLI in the future as so id rather be prepared, not including the monitors ofc, but the sale will end in 2 ish weeks and perhaps the GTX 780 Ti 6Gb "Might" come out within that time period, all the news and articles havnt been updated since January and i did read May / June, it could be right around the corner but it puts me in a bit of a pickle and dilemma.

Heres my build again:

CPU: Intel Core i7 4770K
CPU Overclocking: 4.3Ghz - Extreme Overclock
CPU Cooler: Corsair H100 Extreme Water Cooler
Operating System: Windows 8.1 (64-bit)
Motherboard: Gigabyte G1 Sniper M5
RAM: 16GB Corsair 2133mhz Vengeance Pro (2x8GB)
Hard Drive: Samsung 840 EVO 250GB 2.5 inch Basic SATA SSD
Secondary Hard Drive: 2TB S-ATAIII 6.0Gb/s HHD
Optical Drive: 22x DVD±RW DL S-ATA
Graphics card: NVIDIA GeForce GTX 780 Ti 3GB
Sound card: Onboard 7.1 Audio
Case: CM Storm Trooper or Corsair Obsidian 750D (Not sure Yet)
PSU: 850W Corsair RM Fully Modular

Kind regards Elliot

Hey, I'm running BF 4 on triple 27" asus monitors, 5760 x 1080, 120 refresh rate, ultra setting, 35% motion blur, all ai turned off, and averaging around 50-60 fps, depending on multi player map, it changes somewhat. I've been buying and returning the gtx 780 ti every 30 days from different retailers. Why? Because 3 gb is good enough w/ out ai, but I want ai. And the 3gb doesn't cut it. I too am hopeful for a gtx 780 ti 6gb, but unsure if it will actually happen. The titan z is stupid and r9 295x2 isn't NVidia, so my 3d vision monitors would be rendered useless for 3d. I say wait and see what happens, or stoop to my level of try and return until something better comes out. Of course, EVGA offers step up, so that could possibly be a safe bet as well.

I would wait for the 6GB model

Reason is in the future as games take more and more VRAM, three monitors at nice resolutions are going to need more VRAM. Just go for more it pays off in the long run

They are right that 3GB isn't enough for your requirements. You could go with CF Sapphire R9 290 Vapor-X's. They cost only $470. You know NVIDEA will charge an arm and leg for the 780TI 6GB. The R9 290's have a full 4GB which is just enough nowadays. Read the reviews on the Sapphire R9 290 Vapor-X's

Is 4.3 Ghz really an extreme overclock?!

Wording like that would put me right off. Also the RM series has a lot of patchy reviews, it's not their top line stuff..
