The more I think about it, picking up Titan will only make sense if I go for two. If the card is indeed $900 like rumors suggest then I'm not really sure about dropping $1800 on GPUs alone. If it comes at $700 or less then I'd be willing to grab two but that's highly unlikely. My new build just may end up with two 4GB 680s. I still may change my mind depending on how one card performs compared to a 680 sli setup or 690 in non-synthetic benchmarks.

Am I missing something?

Not IMO. Can't say for sure whether the GTX780 will be delayed until Q4 since it's only a rumor, but there hasn't been any rumors about a release in the near future (i.e. Q2) either. We might know more after NVIDIA's earnings conference call today. JMO, but seems to me that neither AMD nor NVIDIA are in any rush to release next gen cards. Frankly, I'd be surprised if either releases before Q3 if not early Q4. As for Maxwell, don't forget that it's supposed to be manufactured at 20nm. TMSC had a lot of trouble moving to 28mn, and I think it's reasonable to assume that there's a meaningful chance delays might arise with migration to 20nm. Pure conjecture on my part, but I expect the 700 series released in mid-late Q3 at the earliest with Maxwell no earlier than May-June 2014 (Q4 2014 not out of the question).

BTW, my CPU's essentially the same as yours, but my monitor's 2560x1600 rather than 1920x1080. FWIW, I'd probably hold out for the GTX780 if my monitor was 1080p and didn't plan to upgrade to a higher resolution in the near future. Anyway, regarding your comment about possible bottle-necking at the CPU level, even if I do bottle-neck at times, frankly, I don't care. Right now, I'm more limited by my graphics card than CPU. With Haswell set to be released in June, I see little reason to upgrade my CPU until at least then. I planned to hold out for Ivy Bridge-E, but Intel taking f o r e v e r to release. mad.gif Besides, I won't seen nearly the performance improvement with a better CPU compared to a much better graphics card. IMO, a single GTX680 won't cut it at my resolution in terms of gaming, and it's not as good as my GTX580 for GPU computing. As a refresh with no die shrink, I estimate that the GTX780 will be 15%, maybe 20% faster than a GTX680. Better, but not quite enough for me as a single GPU/card solution. Also, there's no guarantee that it won't have the same GPU compute limitations as the GTX680 (AFAIK).

I'm not happy about paying $900 for a graphics card (or cards for that matter), but from what I can determine, if I want to get a certain level of single GPU/card performance at 2560x1600 (gaming and compute), I either get a Titan or wait for Maxwell/Radeon equivalent. Maxwell might not be Q4 2014, but I feel quite confident it's at least a year away if not 15 or even 18 months. I'm not willing to wait that long.

Very. I think the meaning of bottleneck has been misused on this forum for a while now.

Those predicted benchmarks go right along with my thoughts of how a Titan could perform against the competition in non-synthetic benchmarks.

Wow... that's quite the optimistic prediction. At best I see a Titan = GTX690, slightly lagging two GTX680 in SLI, but certainly not greatly surpassing two GTX680s in SLI as the site suggest. Wccftech reports "final" Titan core clock = 875MHz which I find much more reasonable than assuming a 1050MHz boost clock (so core clock around 1000MHz). Be great if true - as long as I can get one biggrin.gif

Quite a foolish decision there mate.......prepare to be underwhelmed, the 2 Lightnings you had probably smoked this card.
