First off I want you all to know I am not a big time gamer, but I do alot of transcoding and encoding and Cuda is a big help, Cuda is actually Nvidias langauge that makes encoding and transcoding faster, much faster, it all depends on how many Cuda Cores are in the card. ATI has this also, its called Open CL. Intel got into the mix with Quick Sync. So since I like to do my homework and was ready to buy something nice, I of course asked forr Stans opinion. First we saw the GTX 690 which is actually an SLI setup in one card. The Egg had them for 359.00 with a lifetime warrantee but they were refurbs. By the time I made up my mind they were long sold out at that price, the 690GTX was 1,000 card when it came out. So I wound up with this, its brand new and has a full warrantee. I actually was thinking about the new 980GTX but this has more Cuda Cores.December 22, 2014 at 1:05 pm #83588Bob2701Member

Alan, hows the GTX780 working out for you ? I’m currently sitting here waiting for UPS to deliver my 3 EVGA GTX980Ti cards, with my luck they most likely will show up after 4 pm lol
