    I am waiting too anxious deciding between red and green.

    If the 290x pulls too much power it will be in crossfire 1000w-1200w psu

    Too much heat = corsair 800d case

    vs sli gtx 780= 860w psu and corsair 650d/750d as you can tell it all in planning stages

    Price/Performance=consumers win!!

    and yet so confused

    Depending on the exact GTX780 model, actually the 290X may be running less hot than the GTX780... at least the reference model exhausts outside - unfortunately most Nvidia aftermarket coolers exhausts inside the case... which ultimately causes too high temps not only on the VGAs but also on the CPU and other components too...

    For that matter, the Corsair 800D is a very unfortunate choice for air-cooling those systems with inside exhausting VGAs...

    860W for GTX780s in SLI is enough only if you run them without OC, or very moderate OC...

    Obviously it depends on what are you gonna use your system, but for any SLI or CF I can not recommend sub 1000W PSUs - but I'm only overclocking and benchmarking... starting from the GTX 4xx series and HD 5xxx series cards, a single 1250W PSU was always the bottleneck of my max OC'ing when I was playing with 2 or more cards...

    Don't forget, to really enjoy a graphics OC, you do need to have your CPU and RAM OC'd too - and those need some juice for that... in return they will produce more heat and you need more cooling, which also needs more juice...

    For everyday use/not so demanding applications none of the above mentioned graphics cards will run at their max, so they won't need a max power draw either...

    As I said before, it's about what you're gonna use your system for...

    thanks for your observation.

    I didn't realize that the 800d was that bad. Oh well 650 it is.

    the 750d has only 3 bays may want a xspc dual bay res/pump + card reader and optic drive.

    will definately be doing a H1100i. I think air coolers are waaaayy too heavy

    I also looked into Seasonic 1000w platinum $217 usd just a few dollars more.

    Don't know about the coil whine issue!! Hope its solved

    I like the Asus 780 because of the backplate. Now maybe a 780ti or titian if the pricing falls

    into my budget about $2500 usd or so

    I will eventually,be doing a 2way sli on a Maximus Vl Formula + 4770k OCing 4.2-4.4???

    Finally i am reconsidering against the 290x cuz it runs toooo hot like 94c furmark in rumored tests,

    But now i find 55c-70c while gaming

    Don't think it will live long at those temps

    I do a little photo editing plus new to gaming.
