Nvidia, shut up and take my money! Sweet GTX 780, held off long enough even though the GTX 680 Classys can be had for $570 now. I can't wait for the ASUS Version of this card. Nice work SKMTL!

I don't think there's a need for 4GB when 3GB vRAM on 7970 is doing just fine. And yes, the price is alright considering the GTX 680 Classys 4GB vRAM were going for 619.99 to 629.99.

I'm really thinking about the Evga Superclocked with the ACX cooler, that is if I can find a review for the cooler to see how it actually performs.

EVGA | Products | EVGA GeForce GTX 780 SC w/ ACX Cooler | 03G-P4-2784-KR

967MHz base clock
1020MHz boost clock

Then I guess the question would be one or two of them and if the 8x PCI-E would really hold them back or not.

I was going to wait but it seems like I better act now because the price just went up by $10. The ACX should be really good at cooling. I read a review featuring the Windforce by Gigabyte which under full load scored 71 degrees Celsius compared to 82 degrees by stock cooler. So aftermarket is what I am going for.
