780 or wait for Maxwell?

I'm playing with the idea of picking up a 780 Classy since they're only like 30 quid more than the superclocked ones now at around 435 quid.

To be fair i don't NEED it as my 560Ti is performing just fine for most games so if a refresh or maxwell is around the corner I might hold on to my cash for now.

Thoughts people??

You hair will be longer 20cm when Maxwell show up.
I suppose NVIDIA will peel our skin more with GK110... They just prepare to launch reference GTX780Ti maybe painted in black with 3GB more memory as Titan Black Edition for 999$. Even if Maxwell show up NVIDIA can't launch now nothing more than 10% better than GTX780Ti, and for that they need to sweat and optimize. Of course Maxwell will be beast, but when they launch second generation, maybe lower process optimized and max performance for that generation. I always like to upgrade when I know that's best what some architecture can give, not slower, not tweaked, optimized, when they launch last and best. That's GF110 GTX580, GK110 GTX780Ti and we will see for Maxwell. Fermi is and GF100 but GF110 is much better, Kepler is GK104 but GK110 is much better.
GTX780 Classified is best performance for money... overclocked can give you about 3000-3100+ depend of memoory score in Valley, compare with GTX780Ti Classified where score is 3200-3300 default.

I like your point about upgrading when the architecture has really been pushed to its limit. Would I be crazy to wait and save for a 780Ti or will a 780 blow me away? Keep in mind I am currently only gaming at 1920x1080 and will continue to do so for the forseeable future

Nothing you throw at a 780Ti is going to make it sweat at 1080p. 780 is a very similar story.

may pick up a 780 then . But yeah i was well aware that at 1080p it shouldn't work up a sweat. Just needed someone else to tell me not to spend the extra 100 for a ti

780/290s are the sweet spot at the mo'. Look at them, especially if you are only gaming at 1080p. I'd recommend a 290 over a 780 at the moment but it does depend on the games you play.

MSAA x4 and x8 cut fps on half easy, you will see.
GK110 is good investment because it's better for gaming and I think our mine is in construction phase... AMD will not hold monopoly any more... 400e cost HD7970 in Serbia. People sell for 350e used easy I barely sell mine GTX780 Classified for 100e more. Everything because coins, coins, coins...

So 780? Or would I be stupid for getting a 780 classy over say this http://www.scan.co.uk/products/4gb-g...d-hdmi-plusbf4 ?

-sigh- bitcoin prices haven't affected AMD over here as much as serbia, not since the crash.

The 290 is still good value, but so is the 780 compared to what it used to cost.

Admittedly I am a bit of an Nvidia fan boy having had better experiences with my Nvidia card than my previous AMD/ATi ones. Is 430 quid for a 780 classy good value or is the gigabyte 290 I linked a better performing card
