Gamers who've wanted to build a very high-end PC this past year with NVIDIA graphics cards have had to face a bit of a dilemma: Opt for the high-performing GeForce GTX 780 (or Ti) and risk the chance of 3GB being too restrictive down the road, or splurge hundreds of dollars more in order to negate that possibility with the 6GB TITAN. Note that the original TITAN was not that much faster than a GTX 780, yet it cost nearly as much as two 780s put together. Again, not a great situation to be in as a high-end gamer.

Well, leave it to EVGA to come to the rescue - albeit a tad late (TITAN came out last February, and the 780, last May). With its just-announced GTX 780s with 6GB of GDDR5, gamers running 4K displays, multi-monitor setups, or even single-display setups with unique needs now have a very attractive new choice.

The best part might be the price: The 6GB models start at $549, which at this point in time is a $30 premium over the 3GB reference model. Like the 3GB models, EVGA will be offering a number of variants of the 6GB cards, including the Superclocked model seen above, which sports an ACX cooler.

Features-wise, there's nothing new here aside from the larger framebuffer, and while that might seem a bit boring, it's not going to be for those in need of such a card. Given its small price premium over the 3GB models, these 6GB ones are seriously intriguing.

I don't think NVIDIA will allow a 6GB 780ti as that would then conflict with Titan Black sales. This is a good tactic to win over AMD Radeon users

I'm thinking the same. A 6GB Ti would be $700-ish, so what's that extra $300 get you? Double-precision performance, that's it. It's unfortunate either way... finding TITAN Black in stock is nearly impossible right now.

If the one you bought was EVGA, then you're in luck. If not...

I like EVGA branded cards.

Dogs are great judges of character, and if your dog doesn't like somebody being around, you shouldn't trust them.

EVGA is also planning GTX 780 Ti Kingpin Edition with 6GB memory, but of course it is going to cost a lot.

GeForce GTX 780 with 6GB memory will be available in ‘few weeks’, while GTX 780 Tis are scheduled for May/June.

Like Jeffery said, definitely wait. The fact EVGA is doing this means other manufacturers will follow (I hope). Also, there will be new models of GeForce cards coming out in the next 6 months or announced, and they'll def meet your needs.

I'd love one of course. But wonder if we do really need and use more than 2-4GB from the gpu.

These are basically just titans made only for gaming at half the price. I still prefer my 780 ti, though it is not the best price to performance card, I got a great deal on amazon, and may sli in the future if the memory is not enough.

PC gaming FTW! Can't wait for The Witcher 3.
