Default 780i ftw

should i step up to a 780i ftw for 20$ plus shipping? i have a 750i ftw there doesnt seem to be much diference exeot the 8 phase power, and it may give me more over clockign room plus it has 3 way sli which i dont think i would ever do but is a perk.

Are you stepping up through EVGA? I just checked their forums and from what I can tell they aren't doing a step up for the 780i FTW

*edit*
According to an admin on the EVGA forums "ORIGINAL: EVGATech_JacobF

Regarding the step-up, it is not available at this time, this is not to say that it will not be available at some point in the future."
