Which Graphics card should i go with GTX TITAN OR GTX 780TI?

Planning to upgrade between the two, but cannot make up my mind on which one i should buy. I want to play games like WATCH DOGS and TITANFALL with maximum full out graphics with AA on 1920x1080. But i don't want to upgrade my graphics card for about 3-4 years time but will still be able to play future games on maxed out graphics. And which manufacture should i go with? i don't have EVGA in my country, I want the best Pre-overclocked speed.

    For gaming 780 Ti

    There are three categories of GFX cards:

    a) Reference cards - why bother ?
    b) No Reference Cards - Asus DCII, MSI N Gaming Series, Gigabyte Windforce, etc
    c) Special cards - EVGA Classified , MSI Lightning / Hawk

    The most commonly desired / bought are the b) category.

    I'd rank them:

    a) MSI N Gaming Series - great performance, unmatched cooling / low noise .... nothing else even comes close, very overclockable, high out of box OC
    9.9 rating http://www.techpowerup.com/reviews/MSI/GTX_780_Ti_Gaming/29.html

    b) Gigabyte Windforce (loud tho)
    Not tested by TPU

    c) Asus DCII - very low clock outta the box, very overclockable
    9.4 rating http://www.techpowerup.com/reviews/ASUS/GTX_780_Ti_Direct_Cu_II_OC/29.html

    d) EVGA SC Series - disappointing history w/ these cards

  2. I would almost say Titan Black in this case due to the 6gb of Vram. Watch Dogs is V-ram hungry.
  3. I'd say wait for a 6GB version of the 780Ti to become available if you are worried about VRAM. The Titan Black just isn't worth it unless you are using applications that benefit from its superior GPU computing capabilities.
  4. While a game may be capable of using more than 3 GB of RAM, but just because they can "use it" does not mean that a game will be limited in any way or performance impacted by having less than that .... at least in single card configurations at 1920 x 1080. At least I have seen no evidence to that effect.
  5. I would look at a 290x as well with its 4gb of ram. It is still a very capable card. The 780ti is a bit faster, but I don't think it is $150+ faster.
  6. The MSI 780 Ti has been $600 on newegg every other week ....3 cycles now
  7. XFX 290x is $499 right now, and the cheapest 780ti is a Zotac model for $662, according to PCpartpicker.
  8. Yup.... as I said.....been running every other week .... was $600 until Friday IIRC.....was $600 2 weeks before and then again 2 weeks before that.....kind alike the Corsair 500R case which runs $90 every other week ..... one week that all at $100, next week white on is $90, next week black on is $90.....rinse and repeat. With the 880 rumors (and with the words "cheaper than 780 / 780 Ti" in the headlines) hitting the front page again today, I expect we'll see another bump down soon.

    Thanks i think ill go with the MSI 780ti although in my country is around 850bucks so newegg doesnt help lol but thanks for the advice though, do you think i should go dual SLI? or is this enough to power my games? but SLI gpx memory doesn't stack so that might be a problem when i play games with heavy loads of gpx memory.
  10. Buy one now..... and buy a 2nd after the 8xx series breaks or when you start to "feel the need" ....prices will be much lower.

    Damn 850 bucks...almost worth a plane ticket :)
