GTX 780 Ti price question

Simple question, I found a GTX 780 ti Reference card for sale on eBay, how much would one usually go for? Its being sold for $310, same price as a 970.

I found another for $260, is that a good deal?

Well the GTX 970 outperforms the 780Ti very slightly, more so in newer titles which have a lot of tessellation which the newer cards do better in. Add to that GTX 970's can overclock pretty nicely and you can get brand new GTX 970's for $290 and ones with great after market coolers that will run cooler and quieter such as the ACX 2.0 for $310 https://pcpartpicker.com/part/evga-video-card-04gp42974kr which will also give you the full warranty, that would be my choice.

Interesting....

The funny thing is that Ive also been told that the 780 out preforms the 970 and the 780 ti is on par with the 980, so now Im kinda struck between a rock and a hard place....

The 780Ti and 970 trade blows and the 970 gets the nod in newer titles, some good videos:

Review on loads of games with the GTX 970 and 780Ti in the mix: http://www.techpowerup.com/reviews/MSI/GTX_970_Gaming/6.html bear in mind this was end of 2014, since then the delta has widened as drivers in favour of the GTX 970 as they have been more optimised for the Maxwell cards.

I originally was going to go with a 780 because I could've gotten for $190 but I missed out on the deal... :(

Thanks for the input :)
