|Asus STRIX-GTX780-OC-6GD5 Review reported at 01:22 PM|
|category: Gaming Video Cards website: techPowerUp!|
Retailing at round $590, the ASUS GTX 780 STRIX 6 GB is not cheap. It costs $100 more than the cheapest GTX 780 with 3 GB, and certainly doesn't provide a performance improvement worth the extra $100. NVIDIA's GTX 780 Ti retails for $660, which is another $70 increase, but it performs better in all scenarios, with the exception of Watch_Dogs at 4K, where we saw the extra memory provide a benefit. Unless you have a specific need for 6 GB, you will be much better off buying a GTX 780 3 GB or spending a bit of extra money on a GTX 780 Ti. The new ASUS STRIX feature is certainly nice and good, but to me wouldn't be worth the extra cost, and I am really concerned with noise levels in my work PC. Unlike the MSI GTX 780 6 GB, which barely missed the Recommended Award, I'm giving it to ASUS because their card brings a bit more innovation, that shouldn't cloud your judgement when deciding whether you really need a 6 GB card.

There are lots of great chassis out there for high-end gaming rigs, but few can offer this level of cooling support in this form factor or this price range. The price may seem high, but compared to rival offerings it’s certainly competitive and the Thermaltake Core V71 should be very high on your list of considerations for your next gaming rig.
