Help me choose between a 980 and 780ti

Shortly after the launch of the 900 series i secured a pre-order of an MSI GTX 980 reference for £320... I didn't really think it would come through but it now looks like it will be delivered on Monday!

I only did it because it was a great price.

Currently I have a MSI GTX 780ti gaming edition and my question is which do i go with?

The 780ti seems to perform fairly similarly to the 980 albeit a little faster and more efficient. The is the obvious difference if VRAM but i would only get about 250 if i sold my 780ti.

Any thoughts?.

I only game at 1080 and like to play the AAA releases mainly

  1. To me, no brainer.

    I understand your thought process though. The 780ti is a Lamborghini, but the 980 is a Bugatti.
  2. In fact, I would sell the 780ti for the 300 (I think you could get 300), and upgrade your monitors. Have you seen the 144Hz monitors? Mindblowing.
  3. Return/sell the 980 reference to recover its cost, and sell your 780Ti as well.

    And then buy the best 980 available.
  4. ^ Oooh I like that.

    But wait, does MSI have a reference card? I've never seen one.
  5. Oh, nevermiind.
  6. I like your thinking huilun02. Will have to look at the possibilities.

    If you still want to play games in Windows Xp like Crysis, Witcher Enhanced,
    Oblivion, Gothic 2,3....Fallout 3,etc.. Keep the GTX-780Ti
    GTX-980 ==> DOES NOT support Windows XP... Be careful....
