again. I know. 780 vs 390

mapegl

For a SFF build in a SG13 from Silverstone.

 

780 reference or a 390? I know the 390 is faster, but is it worth the noise and heat?

Also The 780 is NEW and costs about 250€ compared to the 330€ for the 390.

A lot of 390s aren't that loud, and if you get one from Sapphire, temperatures are pretty good.

780's noise and heat is the same - Kepler had high power draw and heat output

In the long run, I would go with the 390. The performance would last.  Also the reference 780 isn't super quiet and cool compared to a non reference 390.

This, people tend to forget it when they make AMD jokes.

If anything, a reference GTX 780 is louder and hotter than a non-reference R9 390. Go for the R9 390 without a doubt.

well the 390 is better than a 970, and a 970 is better than a 780

so yeah, the 390 is quite a bit better

as long as you get an aftermarket 390 with a good cooler it will be quiet

Avoid that. How about a 970?

If they cost the same then 390.

A 970 would be a cool option if it's cheaper than a 390 and if your PSU isn't beefy enough to handle a 390 (it's basically a 290 on steroids)

He don't want 970 because of the 3.5GB+0.5GB feature.

I am not quoting anyone, but this forum is getting worse.

Many of the things said don't make sense, either due to compatibility or due to the fact that I have suggested item already or.....oh well. Apparently most people don't read the thread anymore.

I mean, if I could fit a 390trix in an sg13, I would just use my old 290 trix instead if buying something new.
