970 FTW OC vs 780Ti Kingpin OC

Go to solution Solved by KingCry,

Just for a second, forget that extra 1GB VRAM and the low power usage of 900 series. And just try to decide between these two in raw performance.

Which one would you choose?

 

I managed to get my hands on a very cheap(but new) 780Ti Kingpin Classified(1450TL and 970FTW is 1200TL(roughly 100usd difference)), and I'm insanely tempted to buy it. But when you decide, I want you to take into account that I will OC the card as much as I can on Air(and maybe even liquid if I'll buy 970).

780ti Kingpin hands down overclock the Kingpin card will make the 970 look like a tiny little baby card.

Kingpin will walk over it, especially with non-air cooling if you decide to do that later.

Well seeing as the titanium version of the 780 already dominated performance, I think it would be safe to say, that the 970 would be the bitch of the relationship.

Then it is settled. 780Ti Kingpin will be MINE.

I just hope that Witcher 3 won't make me regret by requiring 4GB VRAM at Ultra settings.  :D
