MSI = no for me ....

I don't trust you.

Also no physX for me is another knock and then the extra cost is yet another knock.

Too many ****ing games!  Back log 4 life! :S

But the RAM on it is either Hynix or Samsung memory which makes it awesome O:

Not a big fan of leds, but i really like the idea of load and phase indicators. Also that card looks amazing.

Ridiculously overpriced. It's trying to compete with non-reference GTX 780 ti that beat it in every aspect except for litecoin/dogecoin mining.

despite steps taken by MSI, that card screams gpu sag

 

The one thing I don't understand about this card and the ASUS matrix series is why make a card with such a beefy air cooler if you are intending to sell it too extreme overclockers in particular guys who use subzero cooling?

Is it just me or is Grammar slowly becoming extinct on LTT?

they are the same length, but there has to be more weight on the lightning.

Real programmers don't document, if it was hard to write, it should be hard to understand.

Not to be rude, but is it just me or are 90% of your posts just posts to crap on AMD?

 

This card is expensive, but look @ the amount of ridiculous overbuild quality is has to it. It would be a joy to overclock in a custom loop, I don't really like the ridiculousness that is the aircooler on this, but it's gotta keep a TDP monster like that tame somehow.

well so much for performance/price ratio then

At these kinds of price ranges, performance/price ratio doesn't mean much to the people buying these types of cards.

They buy whatever costs the most and appeals to them the most xD

 

(I did this with a titan before 780's came out, then instantly sold it for 2 780s when they came out)   I learned my lesson the hard way after wasting all that money on the titan just because I wanted "the best" :(

 

Now that I'm into heavy overclocking and have a custom loop, I wish I would of waited awhile for 780 classifieds or lightnings to be released and got 2 of those :( My cards even with modded bios are still horrible overclockers.   :(
