Default GK104(680) vs GK110(780) time to decide - 10-28-2013, 21:36 | posts: 4,639 | Location: Israel

Well 780 at 499$ is a HUGE drop in a price and made me an appetite, i think i can't resist anymore, i gonna buy either Zotac AMP 780 or MSI Gamer 780. before i choose the edition i need opinions from all of u guru if u would upgrade considiring i have 120hz monitor ,i LOVE 3D Vision and love gaming in 3d and Physx, so every bit of FPS with higher quality means more.

All guru that went from 680 to 780 i would like to hear ur opinion.

Future-x.de has it for 469 (instock) and it looks like a very good shop.

lol , well why didnt you say so


hmm hard to chose, but I think that Zotac is more custom then MSI gaming, also has higher stock OC.

For example MSI hyped they used military class bla bla on it, bu in reality its basically stock pcb with stock pvm (only 1-2 parts are different). I wouldnt want to buy it just because of that, false advertising. Well unless its very Very cheap.

ye i read zotac amp have boost issue but they resolved it with custom bios so no issue.

Now considering the factors, from 680 to 780 is it really worth it? the price cut make thing look cool

All 780 can be unlocked to 1.3V so just pick the cooler you like the most. The twin frozer VI on my 770 lightning is very nice fans do get a bit loud over 80% but it never needs that much fan speed even when bumping the clocks.

I used the 770 gamer because it's clocks are almost identical to the clocks in your sig.

You tell us if it's worth it but this is basicaly the difference you will see out of the box.

Its worth it at that price, I'll be going SLI, and you get 3 games free which I do not yet own very soon as well in a bundle.

I've thought about the same thing but it honestly doesn't seem worth it. You can pick up a cheap 680 to SLI with and get far better numbers than the extra 20-30% a 780 will offer you. Also, I haven't seen any price drop yet in North America.

Perhaps for better compatibility with msi afterburner the Gamer card should be your choice?

Yeah I'd like to, the plan is to use my holiday money to get one in January, I think they're freaking awesome tbh.
anyways researching which particular card to go for is one of the fun things when upgrading. But sure, are they both standard boards then? both have same power 6 pin + 8 pin? if one has x2 8 pin then go for that, or go for the one with the best board.
