nVidia Geforce GTX 780 vs nVidia Geforce GTX 780 TI
Using proprietary drivers, is the $200 difference from non-TI to TI worth it to buy a 780 TI? I am looking at SLI/3-way SLI at a later date as well.

General spec requirement:
No more than 3GB of vRam per card
3-way SLI

780 TI: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16814500321&cm_re=780_ti-_-14-500-321-_-Product


My Distributions:

Distribution: Gentoo
Kernel: 3.14.14

Is the $207.01 extra worth getting the 780 TI?

Those are the preferred cards I am looking at.

For what? There isn't even a linux game that could make a single one of these cards sweat a bit. (Probably no windows game either.) I know, winter is coming, but believe me, central heating is more efficient if you need to keep your house at a pleasant temperature.

This is more of a planned senario giving up on PC gaming before I can no longer play games with those cards.
