Considering that titan gets beaten by two lesser cards even 660 ti's. Sure titan is a good card, but for the performance it gives it makes no sense. If a thousand dollar card can't max crysis 3, yet spending around 700-800 dollars on two lesser cards can, which makes sense? IMO titan is only worth it when you SLI them, and even then it really only is justified if you run 3 monitors, otherwise sli 680s will still do the job just fine.

The 7970 is best, cheap compared to titan, has more VRAM then the 670 and will out perform the 670.

I had 3 gtx 580 and it wasn't able to max c3 so I ordered 1 Titan now and sli it when they dropped the price
That's a future proof

Well considering ya have to pay extra for 680 when 7970 is cheaper and performs about the same, why not?

They're not going to drop the price. There is no such thing as futureproof
