I would think around $350 for a couple if 580's ???? I know If I do purchase a couple if these my 680 4GB Classys I'll be looking at $300 each.
The ACX versions are listed at EVGA.com and I believe are priced about the same as SC version. Got to think too that Maxwell is likely only about 6-8 months away. !!

120-150 for each 580 is probable i doubt your going to get much more than that though . you can buy 7950s 2nd hand for under 200$ now which blow gtx580's away.

Actually I'm waiting for Slik to make a "move" !!!!
The reason I encourage you to do this, as I really love your benches you post under the overclocking sections. it would be so sick to see 3 of them in tripple sli. Ivy-E isnt that big a of a difference, and since your chip does 4.9 I think, you are ahead of the enthusiast game.


Yea I am pretty sure, SLIK is going to dump his titans for these.

Yep you are right, i sold a 580 more than a month ago for 150. Currently fishingfantic has 2 of them listed, way better than reference for 300 shipped and they are not moving.

They are still great cards, but 600 serices and now 700 series and the new amd stuff really dragged down the prices for the 500 series cards.

I'm pretty sure Tri SLi 780Ti w 4.9 3930k would finally crack P30,000 in MK11, but very $$$$, I'm sure would be pushing 20,000 in Firestrike as well ;)

I admit if I start drinking rum that's when I get silly and start Benching ;)

Figuring Slik dumped his 3930k for a 4930k and +200 MHz CPU OC I'm surprised we haven't seen his Titans over on the FS Section yet, he's keeping a low profile ;)
I'm sure he'll be chiming in soon. !!!

I asked him if he's going for a pair of 780Ti's and he's not sure...but we shall see! However, he did buy a GTX 780 to replace his wife's GTX 680. So I may be putting that up for sale very soon for him.

Hahaha I think that's why he's kind of holding back. He paid a hefty premium for those bad boys, and because of the 780Ti, 290, and 290X, they lost their value to hardcore gamers.

yes nvidia definitely destroyed the value on them to gamer's burned their dedicated fans big time who paid the huge premiums for the nvidia name.

which is reason enough to hesitate on the premium nvidia thinks they deserve with the 780ti also kind of a fool me once shame on you type scenario.

Yeah that's the only part that sucks I think, is something that kills titan and how much everyone paid for it.
But that is bleeding edge, and those who can spend money on bleeding edge do so knowing the risks of doing so.

There will always be better. And to stay ahead of the curve takes only one thing, lots of money.
