I decided to get a gtx 780 or the r9 290 due to the huge amount in price increase, and worse performance in most games. Newegg has a 50 dollar off code until the 21st, and i need to choose what 780 model I want to get by then. There is ONE review website posting the amp edition results and its at the top of all 780s, toms hardware, youtube, etc don't have reviews and this card isn't very popolar, link:http://www.newegg.co...N82E16814500311. It is at a cheap price, and has one of the highest factory clocks. Should I get this, or possibly a 780 evga FTW edition, or something else. I am willing to overclock btw. Thanks for the help guys.

So I narrowed the choices down to the zotac amp edition, msi lightning, or the evga classified. Which one will perform the best when overclocked? Would be awesome if you guys could help.THANKS

Delta will agree with me on this when I say: Always EVGA for Nvidia.

I personally say ASUS 780, but I'm bias.

Definitely, the EVGA cards are fantastic, although I wouldn't waste the extra $70 on the "classified" edition since it doesn't mean much of anything. I have the bottom of the barrel, stock, reference design 780 and my Overclock is currently at 1215Mhz on the core and 3500Mhz (DDR=7000Mhz) on the RAM and that's only so I can keep the temperature @75C with no additional voltage increase. Of course every card is different, at the time it was the cheapest version (It's $539 atm for some reason...)

thanks for the feedback guys, I ended up buying the 780 gigabyte ghz edition before any of the posts, lol. I am getting a boost clock of 1165, without any overclocking. Very happy with my purchase, I was going to buy the msi lightning but it wouldn't allow sli and wouldn't fit in my case.
