    Help which to choose EVGA video card?

    I want to upgrade my video card from GTX 670 to GTX 780. After reading a lot about the video cards. I liked EVGA video cards. I have came across these two video cards model P/N: 03G-P4-3788-KR and P/N: 03G-P4-2748-KR. 3788 performance:
    2304 CUDA Cores
    993 MHz Base Clock
    1046 MHz Boost Clock
    190.6GT/s Texture Fill Rate

    The 2748 performance:2304 CUDA Cores
    967 MHz Base Clock
    1020 MHz Boost Clock
    185.6GT/s Texture Fill Rate.

    As we can see. The 3788 it has few higher numbers and Iam no expert in video cards. Is it a big deal to not to get 2748? Because I couldn't find 3788 and I just found 2478. I don't do no overclock thing just play the games at 1080P and push the video settings to ultra and that is all. Thanks for any help.

    Im a EVGA fanboy at heart too and just got the Superclocked 770 with the ACX cooler (Highly recommend the ACX Cards as they are super quiet & cool better too theres even a bench mark review here showing you get more FPS from them too http://hothardware.com/Reviews/EVGA-...eview/?page=10

    But if you want thetop of the line EVGA version of their cards you want the "Classified" cards

    I doubt those extra MHz will make a huge difference. Maybe 5FPS mas but you could probably get the lesser one to overclock to those levels if you wanted.
    But the sueprclocked version will overclock even higher.

    This I was able to OC my EVGA Superclocked GTX570 HD card from stock 797/1950/1594 clocks to 950/2000/1800 clocks with just a small tweak of the Voltage

    Yeah, I will get the 3788 because they both are 699 and why not taking the 3788 as its faster I would say.

    I think its old and plus I don't like the 2GB of memory. The 780 is much faster even though new AMD gpus are coming but I don't like AMD.

    lol he asked What Version of the 670 do you have ,not why are you getting rid of it

    Also The 670 is still a good gaming card & that will last for ages yet if you just think it's just an Old card then you might as well hold off till the 800 series next year.

    Yeah, i'm stting on i think the 4GB version of the 670 Superclock and it is really nice. I have had some situation where i'm not playing them or using them much right now (makes some people sadder than me, they want to borrow the computers indefinitely, lol).
    But, I have an AMD 6950 2GB on another machine a friend might want to buy for his hackintosh and i'm running Linux servers as well, so, more stable drivers on the NV cards if i do the swap!.

    Let me know if you decide to Ebay this one, thanks.

    That is really cool. Yep the 670 is good as well and it has higher memory than 780. But the 780 it has more cuda cores I think and its faster. The only think I don't like about the 780 is the ram. 3Gb of video memory is kind low and I wished it had 4Gb instead of 3. But I will get it lol.
