Default PNY GeForce GTX 780 OC 3GB Review Comment Thread

The GTX 780 may not be catching the headlines with AMD's R9 290 series and the GTX 780 Ti but PNY's OC edition deserves your attention.

FAST GTX 780!

Might be to tight off a fit with my rad in my Prodigy.

I would be more interested if it were shorter.

Looks promising fore further PNY developments.

I agree. I'm pretty excited about what PNY will be offering, particularly since they seem hell-bent on keeping their lifetime warranty.

Before I would buy from PNY I would need some evidence that they will honor their warranty. I mean it is one thing to offer lifetime warranty it is another thing to honor it. I have had NO previous experience with PNY warranty and so my concerns are not based off of a bad experience just a healthy dose of skepticism.

Great review as always SKY.

PNY's warranty process has been approved by NVIDIA for support of their Quadro professional lineup. That alone should be enough to give you a ton of confidence.

Crazy price variation for this card right now. $660 at newegg canada to $540 at tigerdirect canada
Seems the cheap 780 prices of xmas are long past and they can't settle on a new average...

Thanks, been waiting for more reviews. :)

OC & temps rock!
Here in EU its ~ 440 atm, quite expensive compared to other offerings, but imo its worth it if they chose the best chips

Sounds like a decent card, a little pricey for me but one to watch for sure. My PNY 560Ti has been solid in the 3yrs i've owned it.

One question about this review and other nvidia ones: do you use any fan control software during testing or rely on default driver settings?
