EVGA 780 Classified SLI vs. 780 Ti Classified

Hi all,

I'm looking to buy an EVGA graphics card to finish of my system build. My question: which is better, 780 dual classified in SLI, or 780 Ti dual classified?

Thanks all in advance!!

A single card is always better than an SLI setup.

In terms of raw power, obviously the 780 SLI will win. But you also have to put up with increased noise, power usage, heat, and the fact that SLI requires driver updates every time a new game comes out that you want to play, unless you want the dreaded microstutters.

Get a 780Ti. It'll cut through 1080p gaming like a chainsaw through butter. In fact, you should probably go 1440p just so that your poor new 780Ti doesn't get bored

Either is awesome but would be pointless unless you're running 2560x1440 or 2560x1600.

Not necessarily. 120Hz monitors can benefit from these beasts also.

Although I'm waiting on the price of the modified Asus 120hz with Gsync to drop.

Agreed. I was looking at upgrading my monitor too but I think I'll wait till more gsync models come out.

I have same dilemma. GTX780 Class SLI or GTX780Ti Class KP Edition...
To sell GTX580 and buy another GTX780 Class. or sell her and buy GTX780Ti CLass KP Edition and keep GTX580 for PhysX.
And because I used on single cards it's 90% and I will upgrade on Ti.
I lose lot of performance but never mind. From money side I will pay same.

But this card look incredible and will be expensive...









For me is most important high base clock 1075MHz and Boost is almost 1200MHz I can bet. They talk something about 1300MHz on 1200V stable and I can't ask nothing better. 2880 CUDA unlocked GPU Clock 1300MHz and 1900-2000MHz Memory after OC is crazy speed for gaming.
I could imagine how card shine in case with LEDs as

The kingpin edition is really only worth the money if your planning on using liquid nitrogen to overclock it as EVGA, Kingpin himself and a lot of other top overclockers have already stated.

Both my EVGA Superclocked 780 Ti's boost to 1175 and I have both overclocked to 1200 on the GPU and 3800 on the memory.

The difference between one overclocked 780 Ti above and the kingpin edition in games will be so small it wont be worth the huge amount of extra money, This card is meant for extreme overclockers i.e Liquid Nitrogen.

Save your money and get another EVGA GTX 780 Classified for SLI.

GTX780 Classified SLI is for me cheaper option. Because for that I only need to sell practical new EVGA GTX580 reference unpacked in August 2013 from foil and registered before 6 months. Other money I have saved for upgrade on Ti.
Other option is little more expensive for me less performance... That's sell GTX780 Classified keep GTX580 for PhysX and pay about 300-350e for GTX780Ti. Anyway I need to pay 300-350e only in one situation I stay with GTX780 Classified SLI and in other with GTX780Ti Classified and GTX580 for physix.
But this card I look as 1200MHz Boost out of box on stock voltage and EVGA will try to pull 1300MHz with 1200V. That's clear 25% more than GTX780 plus faster memory, plus 120MHz higher fabric clock than GTX780 Classified. I say that's clear 25%+ better card than single 780, double less power consumption than SLI and much less problem than with SLI. With SLI I count on 60-65% scaling in normal situation. But for 12 months for power bill I will spend one Intel processor.
Because of that I'm more for GTX780Ti KPE. I have buyers immediately for GTX580 because it's excellent nice reference sample with Samsung memory inside and I can order immediately second GTX780 Classified.
But keeping this in hand is priceless.
I will not pay any more NVIDIA PCB or similar...and this card will be not more than 100$ over GTX780Ti reference with I don't have real word for their PCB... such expensive cards and such boards ...
OK GIGABYTE make GHz Edition with same base clock as KP Edition but zero OC space that's word of difference sources. They binned chip to work on 1085MHz and boost and nothing else. Only to show stability on that clocks.
