Summary: The tradeoff is that it uses 2 1/2 slots. A vga/dvi adapter is included, but the power adapter is not. The card has two 8 pin pci-e power connectors (not 8 and 6 pin as listed on the box and specs.
Summary: i received the card, and the card itself works fine. however the "packaging" it came with was abysmal. all it had was a Burned cd (TDK brand) with generic drivers, and a dvi>vga adapter wrapped in shrink wrap with a extremely generic quick guide (seriously it refrenced s-video adapter) and NO POWER CABLES, it specifically says on the box that it was supposed to have at least 1 8 pin power connector (which this card requires 2 to function).
Summary: Now this is a real horsepower graphics card. I do video editing and rendering is always a very slow process; not any more! Parrell processing is the key. NVIDEA uses CUDA technology. Highly recommend this card. Runs about $700 but if your a serious video editor it is worth it.
Summary: **Note: This review is technically for the EVGA Superclocked version of this card, however I was sent this one on accident (and it was my first choice originally). The EVGA is just a slightly more powerful variant. This review still applies to this product** Before this one I was sitting on a dated Radeon HD 5670 which just wasn't cutting it anymore.
Summary: I am playing bf3, bf4, titanfall, assassins creed black flag. it is an expensive card. the performance is there. r9 290x was the same price as the 780ti and r9 290 price was 50$ cheaper. the 780ti was my first high end nvidia card. i may buy another one if the price is much less. i registered it online for their warranty. no problems installing the card and updating the drivers was easy too.
Summary: received my pny 780 ti oc from amazon, like a kid at x-mas opened the box to find NO cables or adapters, called support thy said thy would send me at least the power adapter 2x4pin molex to a 8 pin. not what I got! I received a 2x6 pin to 8 pin. had to run down to a local computer store and buy a new power supply that I did not need if I where to get the right adapter thank you pny! now as for the rebate.........Wright!
