I'm thinking of buying a GTX 780Ti EVGA ACX Classified (possibly two for SLI). Problem is it has two 8 pin power connectors, my PSU only has an 8 pin and a 6 pin for each GPU. Is there a way to fix this? Or will I just have to get the Super Clocked version?

BTW, my PSU is a 1200W RaidMax.

You can get a Molex to PCI-e converter

It's probably the pure Uplay version, instead of Steam version w/UPlay. Either way, UPlay is annoying.

I might not follow through or mellow out but...

This is the last game I'm going to buy from Ubisoft (and I'm buying the PS4 version). UPlay is a terrible mess of a DRM platform, it has been classified as a rootkit ( http://games.slashdot.org/story/12/07/30/1214206/ubisoft-uplay-drm-found-to-include-a-rootkit and I don't know if this was fixed), and Ubisoft is pretty much an eviler version of EA, but for some reason they don't get as much flak.

Like if I see an "access code" in my copy of Watch Dogs (for the PS4, mind you) and it's really a CD key I have to enter and register with my UPlay account, Ubisoft can go shove it. I swear this was the case with AS:4. It wouldn't let me actually play until I inputted the supposed "Online access code" and logged into UPlay.

I feel like it wouldn't be worth it unless you're planning to get a 780 or higher because that is what you need to play at max settings <:[

ROFL. ;)

Unless a miracle happens, the only reason we'll need a 780 to play this game is because the game isn't optimized. Will this look better than the 360-level graphics promoed? Will it look better than DX:HR or Titanfall?

Probably not :(

Can you prove it isn't optimized?

The biggest problem with this promo is that all of the eligible cards jumped in price by about $40 yesterday when this deal went into effect. Its still cheaper than buying the game at full price, but I just want a new card.

OMFG.

They're taking notes from Kohl's, Macy's, and J.C. Penny's.

Think I'll pass on this special offer....

Don't forget AMD's offers of free games with their cards.

If AMD raises their prices for NSFB I haven't been able to tell thanks to the cryptocurrency inflation. :(

This just might make me want to replace the GPU in my box. I have been eyeing the "open world" aspect of this game and Tom clancy's The Division.
