Good luck Solar, I hope they sell for you. I have been reading up quite a bit on the Classy and apparently it has some pretty high end parts and voltage controller. Word seems to be that it is the best 780 you can get.

Of course I will be back with lots of benchmarks later after it's been delivered. Lets see how it stacks up against the HOF.

That's a good price, I think the cheapest I found for a reference was 540. I look forward to hearing how it performs if you get one, hopefully you can run some of the benchmarks we have here on the site so we can see how it does.

That GTX 780 classified is $605 for me. I am planning on getting maybe one of the EVGA GTX 780 with an ACX cooler since I have a HAF 922 case with really good airflow, with also a 850watt psu in-case I need to upgrade anymore. But which graphics card should I get they all seem the same?
Also whats the difference between these 2 PSU?

Well I am going to get the HX since its better, but here is another story the ASUS GTX 780:
Newegg.ca - ASUS GTX780-3GD5 GeForce GTX 780 3GB 384-bit GDDR5 PCI Express 3.0 HDCP Ready SLI Support Video Card
ASUS GeForce GTX 780 900MHZ 3GB 6.0GHZ 2xDVI HDMI DisplayPort PCI-E Video Card
Well I am not really sure what is the difference between getting an OCed card and non OCed, but if the Asus card is better than the EVGA than I am sure going with that.

I would pick EVGA over ASUS if it came down to those cards and the classified is still clocked about 200mhz faster 1046 boost clock the one you are looking at boost clock is 902 that is a huge chunk and the price is cheaper they are charging 160.00 more then the classified from EVGA

Classified is a very good card, it don't beat the HOF, but it is very close. The temps on the other hand are night and day, for example Unigene Sanctuary, the HOF hit 96C overclocked, the Classified hit 57C Overclocked.

Thats is actually a pretty nice card, you should get the backplate and get better temps.

It's interesting you said that cos I read that the backplate increases temps by up to 15C, this was from a few different sources. The backplate looks awesome, I had one on an old Evga 660ti which looked great but the reported temp increases have put me off on this one.

Where did you hear a backplate will give better temps? As far as I am concerned all it will do is make it look nicer and improve rigidity of the card, I had not thought about temps until I saw people speaking about the plate raising temps the other day.

I read that on the EVGA store: EVGA | Products | EVGA GTX 780 Backplate | 100-BP-2780-B9 says decreases by 3 degrees. But which EVGA card should I get? They all look the same
Newegg.ca - Computer Hardware, Video Cards & Video Devices, Desktop Graphics Cards, EVGA, GeForce GTX 700 series, GeForce GTX 780 my budget is $500 -600.
