PCB is just slightly different than GTX780 and Titans it seems. Doesn't look like GTX780 waterblocks will fit.

Still an impressive card and I want one.

Makes me wonder what Nvidia would end up with if they enabled EVERYTHING on their Kepler cards.

The GTX780TI is flipping expensive compared to the GTX780,GTX780 GHZ Edition cards and R9 290 here in the UK . For the massive price markup over those cards,its not really that impressive at all. The cheapest R9 290 is 310 which is a 240 difference in price and then its around 130 to 200 more expensive than loads of aftermarket GTX780 cards including GHZ Edition ones. Even the R9 290X is made to look expensive by these cards.

I am not sure the 77% markup over the R9 290 and the 31% to 57% markup over custom GTX780 cards is worth it for the performance on offer.

Over in Europe you guys have some very odd price disparities compared with North America.
I remember helping my friend over there with a Power Supply and I couldn't believe how much more they cost over there versus here for the exact same model.

Sorry to hear that mate.
Its a good value, but I guess its a good value depending on where you live too.

As for the card itself, very nice. Maybe I can find someone selling their 690 in the near future for a good price.

Nice card, but I can't justify picking this over the 780 classified for an average of 3-6 FPS gain when OC'd. (At least from what I've read so far.)

It's a good card, and surprisingly competitively priced.

- At 2560x1440, this thing has the upper hand for sure
- At 4K though, I suspect the AMD card will likely win
- This thing does trump it though in power consumption


It'll be interesting to see what custom PCBs come out.
