Each GPU further has a 256-bit wide GDDR5 memory interface, with which it talks to 2 GB of memory.

780 Ti is probably the better choice for now. The only true negative I see is less VRAM, but 3GB is still more than enough.
I think I will stay with my Evga factory Superclocked 780 TI, since it's about 15% overclocked (1007 base clock)
