Personally, Im waiting for the 4GB models to land. These beasts are meant to be SLI'ed and 2GB is rather small. At this price point...even if the 4GB cost 50 bucks more...that is only 250'is more for two of them compared to what a single 780 is going for!

Or wait until the next ATI's are out. nVidia will have to drop the 780's price.

Edit: Or get 2 of these in SLI and smoke the Titan, for $200 less.

Is $50 worth a five month wait for a 780 in your scenario?

If you are doing surround gaming then you need 4gb, otherwise no.

Have to say I thought this was going to be more. Anyone else think Nvidia have something coming in the middle of the 770 - 780 price gap? around $525ish? 770 TI?

Wow. Nice review of a great card. The entire 6xx line just lost value. Curious to see what 680/670 sales will be like in the next couple weeks. It's going to be a buyers market.

I would say only if amd releases something in that gap or nvidia has a stockpile of reject chips that can't be used as Titan or 780.

Dont hold your breath for crashing price drops in leftover 6XX Series Cards, when this sort of thing happens there never is, most retailors ensure there Stock of outgoing Cards is just high enough to satisfy those few interested, perhaps look for more rebates, but thats likely about it.
