People Are Recently All Excited by New Nvidia GTX770/780
Which are both actually not new GPUs: we all know that GTX770 is a higher clocked version of GTX680, and GTX780 is a lower clocked version of Titan.
I am on a tighter budget, and more importantly, I am so disappointed by the game market in the last few years, essentially after spring 2010 that no new game motivate me to upgrade for. I rather wait for the upcoming substantial, generational upgrade.
So you mates can review on the new models?

Wait it out. If you're on a tight budget and you've been let down by the game market, why would you be in the market for spending money on a new graphics card that you might not get any use out of?"Halo is designed to make the player think "I look like that, I am macho sitting in my undies with my xbox""

The GTX 780 is only worth it if you have a lot of money and demand extremely high performance.
Anyway, half a year from now, AMD should have a more substantial launch for us. And then Nvidia a little later with Maxwell, for their 800 series.

My 560ti holds very well still. Why upgrade when I can play new games like Bioshock Infinite with ultra settings (ok I can't activate the hair thing in Tomb Raider but still)? This market expands but doesn't grow.Steam

I got a second GTX 560 TI for £80 on ebay. With SLI I can now rock Metro : LL on Very High.
Stay just behind the curve and your way better off.

Im building my first pc and don't really want to wait for AMD's new cards. I was very tempted to get a GTX 770 because its just a cheaper 680 and has beat 7970's in most tests but will this remain true with next Gen games seeing that they will be optimised for AMD hardware?

I'm still using a 460 GTX atm and frankly it's fine for my needs. Right now I think it's best to wait out on any hardware updates and see exactly how demanding the new consoles games are going to be (forget halfway houses like Watchdogs, but the real stuff like Titanfall etc), and the impact that has on PC hardware before committing.

You should definitely give this review of the EVGA GeForce GTX 780 Superclocked ACX a read. It consistently managed to either equal or outperform the Titan in all areas with the exception of power draw. These are three direct quotes;
Bought a Titan in the last couple of weeks? You have our sympathies.We were so surprised by the Superclocked card's benchmark results that we began to triple-check in-game settings to make sure something hadn't moved down a notch or two. Nope, it's just that fast.There are bound to be certain titles in which Titan comes out on top. We just haven't found one yet.

That's just overclocking. You could have gotten the same or more performance on your own.

I have no problems running Oddworld: Stranger's Wrath HD on my 7950. What does it do?
