Greetings,
a while ago my gpu died, and now that i'm getting refunded i need to choose which one i will get next.
It would be mainly used for gaming, and my configuration atm is:
asus maximus iv extreme-z
i7-2600k(it's oc'd to 3.8)
thermaltake frio (don't want to put in liquid cooling atm, since i don't have experience doing that)
16GB ddr3 corsair vengeance
asus phoebus
seasonic ss-760xp2
thermaltake armor (full tower, with 5 fans)
1 ssd and 2 hdds
1 dvd.
usb kb and mouse

I use 3 monitors, but i only run games on one (144hz), other 2 are for watching movies/work/misc...
I am pretty sure that psu will have no trouble providing enough power for any of the options listed below, but just in case i listed every single item that draws power, so someone with more experience can confirm/deny this :).

The question is, which graphics card to get.
Where i live, i have the choice between
GIGABYTE GeForce GTX 690 4GB GDDR5 GV-N690D5-4GD-B (883e)
ASUS GeForce GTX 690 4GB GDDR5 GTX690-4GD5 (1001e)
GIGABYTE GeForce GTX 780 Ti 3GB GDDR5 GV-N78TOC-3GD (rev. 1.0) (695e) (store i bought my old gpu has this one, so might have to choose this or other that that store has)
GIGABYTE GeForce GTX 780 Ti 3GB GDDR5 GV-N78TD5-3GD-B (682e)
ASUS GeForce GTX 780 Ti 3GB GDDR5 GTX780TI-3GD5 (711e)
ASUS GeForce GTX 780 Ti 3GB GDDR5 GTX780TI-DC2OC-3GD5 (722e)

The prices are more for a frame of reference than for anything, i would rather get better card for slightly more money.
Since i'm not sure if i would get 2nd card for sli(if i do, it won't be anytime soon, not till 780ti drops enough in price to justifty the cost, but it would be another 780ti :)) what would be the best option?
Also, as noted above, i might be pidgeonholed into getting the only card that the store has to offer atm, so i would really appreciate the order of the best options in case i can actually choose :).

Of note is, i mainly play games that are more cpu intensive (mmos mainly, wow and planetside2 to name a few), but i would like to run some newer games in at least 60fps, preferably 120(that's not a priority tho).



I apologize for the huge wall of text, and appreciate any input/help you guys/girls can provide :)

Thanks,
Alex.

Edit: apparently, there might be option for ASUS GeForce GTX TITAN BLACK 6GB GDDR5 GTXTITANBLACK-6GD5 (942e) . But tbh that would be my last choice, unless it heavily outperforms all other options.

Hey OP. Sorry for bumping post but i was wondering since it has been a while now and you probably have the new card, Which one did you get and how does it perform as of today. Im having the same decision here as-well :). Again sorry for bumping

Hey Neon, sorry for the late reply. just noticed the question.
I went with DC2 780 Ti, i'm very happy with it, i'm getting 60/120 fps in most of the stuff i run, haven't had any issues with it, and didn't even feel the need to OC. I would stick to it, or maybe get 980/980 Ti, depending on the price..

Thanks Leks

Yeah in the end i decided to go for a EVGA GTX 970 ACX 2.0 SuperClocked. I saw the specifications and comparing it to my Current GPU (Palit GTX 770 OC) It was well better ;) . Hopefully should be getting it soon. Yeah i saw benchmarks for the 780ti and it still beasting it in this generation of games, thats what made me think of getting it. Enjoy your card!
