so im build a pc and my big problem is wich one of those graphic cards pick, i really like the gtx 780 ti reference design because of the green light and the 'armor' , but i can sacrifice that if the non reference cards give me more FPS , i dont mean like 3 -5 fps more, i mean like 10 or more fps when overclocked , what should i do ? (the case will have good airflow),and if i buy evga reference model OC , can i overclock it more?

Personally, I only buy reference based cards. I one bought a non-reference card and then was at the mercy of PowerColor to update their drivers since the card would not work with the reference drivers. I didnt keep that card long; PC was awful at updating the drivers after the first year.

EVGA cards do tend to overclock better then other brands, they normally buy higher grade chips for their cards, but it is kind of like a lottery. I personally like how the EVGA cards look but that's me.

10 FPS is doubtfull even with an awesome overclock unless you are running a game thats already getting over 100FPS (and therefor doesnt even need the OC).

If you are at 40FPS and want 50 then that would be a 25% OC and I dont think thats being realistic given a factory OC board to begin with. With a basic model its probably possible in some games. (again , probably the games that already have good FPS)
