GTX 780 with Core i7-920 benchmarks at Ultra Quality quality settings

At 1440p, GTX 780 can hit 50-60 fps on pretty much everything at ultra, just without antialiasing, less ambient occlusion and turned down shadows. It is worth noting that the GTX 780 is a very power hungry card and requires a decent power supply unit. In terms of memory, the GTX 780 's 6144 MB RAM is more than enough for modern games and should not cause any bottlenecks. This combination between GTX 780 and Intel Core i7-920 @ 2.67GHz is going to cause serious bottlenecks in many games and cause severe FPS loss. Deciding whether to invest so much money in a high-end GPU like GTX 780 requires careful thought.

Critics Reviews

The NVIDIA GeForce GTX 780's main features and specifications are listed in the table above. Before we get into the specifics of the card and some of the capabilities of the GPU at its core ...
GeForce GTX 780 3GB Overclocking Having already had plenty of success with overclocking GTX 780's big brother, GTX Titan, we had a rough idea of what to expect here.
Just as we were warming up for Intel's Haswell CPU, Nvidia go and drop a whole new generation of graphics cards on our laps, with the Nvidia GeForce GTX 780 at the vanguard.
GTX 780 on the other hand is a pure gaming/consumer part like the rest of the GeForce lineup, meaning NVIDIA has stripped it of Titan’s marquee compute feature: uncapped double precision (FP64 ...
Compared to the Nvidia GeForce GTX 680, the GTX 780 is a marked step forward. The new card has 50% more cores, 50% more texture mapping units, and 50% more render outputs than the older GK104 ...
Nvidia has the GTX 770 next week to match up against the 7970GE in that price bracket, the 780 is clearly meant to continue on the massive premiums for GK110 flagship ASIC started by Titan.
In short, although the GTX 780 has a higher base clock than Titan (863MHz versus 837MHz), the fact that it only goes to one higher boost bin (1006MHz versus 993MHz) means that the GTX 780 doesn ...
NVIDIA today announced the GeForce GTX 780 graphics card, which has a lot in common with the GeForce GTX TITAN. The pricing of GeForce GTX 780 makes setting up 2-card SLI just 30% pricier than a GTX TITAN, with the prospect of a huge performance lead.
The GeForce GTX 780 marks a huge leap forward in gaming performance—an insanely fast, smooth, and whisper-quiet experience, every time.
