The 780ti is not junk! lol. I am loving this - time to buy another one to go 2-way SLI - that should do me for years. Who cares if it takes another few watts?

Looking at the current prices, another 780 Ti is looking massively tempting. I would probably need a higher capacity PSU as well to be on the safe side.

2x 780s for £456. Serious performance for the cash.

Not very much. The 7870 XT when overclocked was around 7950 performance levels. So a 280. a 770 is almost identical in performance to a 280X. If you aren't overclocking I would say 20% increase? if you are 10% maybe? not sure exactly.

780 for 228 pounds? It does sound like a bargain. But does anyone know where i can find these prices? I can't spot them anywhere

If anyone could PM me, i'd be very grateful.

P.S. I'm not from the UK, so the reason may be that i don't know where to look.
