serious build :) .
if you like, you can cut down some on the price (for example, get a 1000W PSU) to get 2133Mhz RAMs. unless you are planning on quad SLi in the future.

If it's primarily for gaming an i7 is overkill, i5 will be fine. Other than that, that pc will last for years.

Do any of you guys think I should wait until a later stage to purchase another gtx 780 or should I do it now
November 5, 2013 9:59:27 AM

Right now one 780 will run anything on ultra, you'll be good for at least 2 years with one.

I don't know too much about water cooling so I can't really help you there.

Might be looking into another msi gtx 780 that will run in sli
November 8, 2013 12:51:19 PM

Two 780's would last a long time.
November 10, 2013 4:50:44 AM

Should I go with gtx 780 or get the 780ti is it worth the extra money
November 10, 2013 4:59:59 AM

I am also looking into changing that corsair 800d to a Cooler master cosmos ii I know the corsair is a very good case but and it hurts me saying this since I am huge corsair fan it looks dull and boring and the way Cooler master describes that cosmos ii ''The smooth, brushed aluminum touch of the side panels unlock and swing open like the doors of a luxurious race-car'' what do you guys think should I go with corsair or cooler master and keep in my I will be one 360mm rad and one 240mm and from what I have read the corsair needs some mods to fit the 240mm in the basement.It will be a custom loop

Go with the cosmos if that will make you happy. Also, the 780 ti is around titan performance, it will be worth it.

Ok guys i was doing some research on this gtx 780ti and got some interesting results tell me what you guys think and if you think i should stay with the 780 or go with the ti version

FPS benchmarks
GTX 780 780TI

bio-shock infinite-Max:61.28 Max:72.12
Min:46 Min:57

Crysis 3 -Max:35.04 Max:39.36
Min:4 -_- Min:34

Skyrim -Max:39.12 Max:45.48
Min:30 Min:32

Metro last light -Max:35.75 Max:45.56
Min:14.8 Min:11

Gtx780 average of 42.8 FPS and the min FPS a average of 23.7
GTX 780ti average of 50.6 FPS and the min FPS a average of 33.5
So that is only a 7.8 FPS improvement on the max FPS and a 9.8 FPS on the min i don't see that as such a big diffrence for the 200 dollars more or is it a improvement for that amount of money and all that games were run at max settings.

O yea I can also say one thing if my info is correct that sure as hell ain't a 25% increase in performance....?!
