Hey buddy, ENJOY it. I'm sure you work your ass off. I just think $1000 for a video card is nuts. Personally, I flat out refuse to pay more than $300 for a GPU. So I don't mind being a bit behind the curve. Top of the line GPUs are for benchmarking, and that's about it. My little 7950 eats everything I throw at it with ease, so I personally can't justify THREE TIMES PLUS that price for a Titan. Plus you put a $150+ water block on it, and you're approaching $1200 for a GPU!! Heck I have less than $5000 put into my system, and it would be less than that if I hadn't got the urge to try water cooling 2/3rds of the way through the build.
Don't get me wrong though: if I had the money, I'd have gone top end, but I don't. I'm just a poor Canadian government stooge who makes 75K a year BEFORE taxes, which are considerable in Canada. Not hating on Titan owners at all, don't take me wrong.
