the first build is designed to have good components but the money is more evenly spread a crossed all components leaving me with a gtx 770 as my graphics card my second build utilizes a lot of the same components but I've tweaked it around to allow a 780 in the build Which do you think is better and is there any modifications that can be made to improve either system? thank you in advance for your help.

thank you id deffinetly consider the 290 as it does preform better then a 780 but the 290x only gets like 5 frames more then a 290 for like a extra 100 dollars and the thermaltake has fairly if-y reviews on new egg and toms hardware so may just stick with the corsair.

Fair arguement. Id say go with your gut and the features you really need.

Have you looked in to the 290? it price is between the two and will perform better than the 780 however it is hotter.

i did and i thought about the 290 a lot because in performance it beats the 780 and crushes 1080p gaming.Having it for tackling next gen games made me really tempted. But the 780 and 290 are similar enough that for me shadow play, Gsync,and advanced physx tip the scale towards the 780
