Well it was hidden quite well. :|

I see it now though, thanks!
It was hidden pretty well. Had to use the old Ctrl F when I couldn't find it on my own.

Looks to be a pretty well built card although it's got 8 + 2 power phases rather than the 12 + 2 of the Classy (not sure on the Lightning).

Thanks for the info. :thumbsup:


Lame! Classified is back to $700.

I thought about the Hoff as well but it doesn't have the voltage unlocked from what I can tell. Still an impressive card for the clock speeds it can reach on stock voltage though.
I thought about the HOF for a second and then saw what the card looked like....NAH....too ugly for my tastes, i'm not using a white enclosure. Also, if you read the HardOCP review thread fully there are quite a few users experiencing signifigant problems with the card requiring a new BIOS from the manufacturer. Not sure if their issues were resolved, but....makes me kinda leery. Definitely read through the HardOCP 780 HOF review thread before you decide.

Right now i'm eye the Lightning and Classified 780s for SLI and it looks like it will probably be the classified. Once the price is adjusted downward on it (it was 699$ still at newegg earlier today). Possibly the Asus DC II as well just cuz well... i'm an asus fanboy and the card looks awesome.

Hmm. Wonder if this is a sign of where stock 780Ti's performance is going to be. That is definitely priced high. You would think EVGA would definitely stick with Nvidia's pricing structure since they are the number #1 Nvidia brand here in North America. Then again, the HOF and Lightning would be priced similar then as well you would think.

With cooler temperatures, lower power draw and quiet operating the 780 TI could be a great competitor if its prices right.

I think the $150 price drop on the 780 was very much needed and it still has the 780 is a difficult position. Yeah, the build quality is better, but the performance per price is still not as good.

The TITAN feels like a useless card still, they didn't reduce the price so that was really weird, they may be discounting that card and replacing it with the GTX 780 TI, I sure hope so, because for it outrageous price it loses to the 290x in many benchmarks, especially at higher resolutions.

No. For some reason, some of Newegg's cards haven't been priced appropriately. Also, last I checked, other places like Tiger Direct and Microcenter haven't even dropped their prices yet. This is a really sloppy price drop. To give you an idea, here's that same "$700 card" at EVGA's own store: http://www.evga.com/Products/Product.aspx?pn=03G-P4-3788-KR . Yeah, it's $580.

I think you all may be seeing examples of NewEgg's auto price adjustment. Because I'm virtually certain I saw the Classified at $559 at one point yesterday. Probably sold like crazy for 10 minutes and the prices went up. (My memory could be transposing the Lightning price onto the Classy though as I wasn't really in the market)

The Lightning was $549 and still is, the Classified was $649...now it rose $50 lol...and the HOF dropped $200.

Newegg really needs get that thing in order. The drops are in place, but yeah certain cards seem to be jumping around a bit.

780 classy for a month or two, then step up to 780 ti classy?
That's a no go. You can only step up to reference cards, and it must be done within 90 days. If that's the play someone wants to make i'd just wait a week for the 780ti to drop. Anyway, I dunno. I haven't found much value in step up because of this (limited to reference, NOT my preference). That said, i've interacted with EVGA's US CS once and they are polite and great to deal with. I can see someone buying EVGA just for their CS, it's quite good. Conversely i've dealt with a couple other RMAs where I nearly gave up in frustration due to broken-english speaking CS reps. (at other companies). Then I called asus once where the CS rep seemed angry at me FOR speaking english - I had to call asus because I messed up a BIOS flash on a motherboard. I guess my cantonese was not good enough for him, lol. This was YEARS AND YEARS ago though, I hear they're much much better now. Frankly Asus' hardware quality is so high that I haven't had issues really, so they're still my favorite personal brand for everything - GPUs, motherboards, the whole works.

Titan was always a useless card for gamers. The 780 made it obsolete, especially all the great custom cooled ones. It remains a CUDA card for much cheaper than Teslas and Quadros.

What a nonsense statement. The Titan was overpriced but it is very much a gamers card. The 780 requires an OC just to match a stock Titan. The 780 Ti may be the only card that changes this 8 months after the fact.

Except you forgot to mention so many 780s available are pre-OC custom AIB cards that easily match Titan, with more room left for overclocking due to voltage unlocked. You must be the only one here to defend Titan as a better gaming card.. which is no surprise given you have SLI Titan. Waste of $$.

And the Titan can't be oc'd? More nonsense. What video cards do you own again? Because if Titan isn't a gaming card, then whatever you have must be absolute rubbish.

The bolded part is ironic since we don't know any of the info you claim as it's benefits, while we do know the high price of $700. Every point is you claim is unkown while the price you wish you knew is the only thing we know. :p

Sure, you feel all mighty because you folked out that much dough when a 780 HOF or something matches it for much less.. keep beating your chest.

Titan is only a gaming card for people who don't value $$.

JHH did say its power efficient and cool running during the recent conference. But then again he did say that the woodscrew card was the real deal.. :p
