My new GTX 780
 
I went ahead and picked up an EVGA GTX 780 SC. I was going to get a Titan but decided to wait for the 780. So glad I did! The GTX 780 SC is factory overclocked to 941 MHz from the default 863MHz with a boost up to 993MHz. I upgraded from a GTX 580 and what a difference. The GTX 780 is easily twice as fast, and it's probably 95% as fast as the Titan for $369 dollars less! While that the GTX 780 isn't worth the money, hey, you get what you pay for. I felt that the Titan was outrageously overpriced, but the GTX 780 is right on target. With no competition from AMD, NVIDIA can charge whatever it wants. I'll have some benchmarks up later.

Enjoy the new card! :)
Such amazing products this year from nV with the TITAN and the 780. I wish iRacing would be more demanding to that I could have a reason to upgrade.

I'm going to wait until either the EVGA ACX version or MSI Lightening turn up down here.

I was about to pull the trigger on the lightning 770, but decided to wait. Going to stick with a 640 gt for now... ugh.....

The GTX 770 looks like the best deal. I just picked up a new Dell U3014 monitor, and I wanted to have a card that could power my games on it. You should see Crysis 3 at 2560X1600 with all the eye candy turned up! It really taxes the GTX 780 though. The game is playable, but I'm getting about 25-30 FPS. I don't think I'd do much better with a Titan.

Have you tried OC'ing the card yet? Looks like most people can get 1100 on boost.
