wait for titan reviews and see if you can grab one when its available for sale. being a single GPU Titan is more prefereable than GTX 690.

So now that we know how much Titan costs, for a gamer like me that plays MMOs and the occasional action game (not fps) i think I will pass on Titan. I just need to maintain 60 fps on my games at 1440p. Can the 7950 or 670 accomplish this with minimal overclocking?

Will that get me 60fps in most MMOs? I can get 2 670s but my case is small so my OC headroom will be limited at best.

definitely a HD 7950 or GTX 670 can accomplish the task of playing MMOs at 1440p. so if you prefer Nvidia get a good card like MSI GTX 670 PE, Gigabyte GTX 670, EVGA GTX 670 FTW for around USD 380 - 400. if you want the best bang for your buck go with HD 7950 boost. also if you won't play the games from lthe AMD never settle reloaded bundle (Crysis 3 and Bioshock Infinite) you can sell them for 25 - 30 bucks each and bring your cost to USD 250. Sapphire HD 7950 boost is a good option thumb.gif

Will I need to sli or cf to get the good frame rates or will 1 do the job? Keep in mind I'm coming from sli 570s now.

a HD 7950(1.2 ghz) / GTX 670 (1.3 Ghz) would be on par with GTX 570 SLI. the 3GB VRAM at 1440p allows you to go for higher MSAA and mods in games like Skyrim without running out of VRAM.

I also have a 2x gtx570 sli setup and I ve been very happy with it. I usually play at 1600x1200 @100mhz refresh rate resolution because I have a big CRT. Did you saw crysis 3 benchmark that guru3d launched yesterday? It seems we will be ok. ;-)

I would look at the EVGA GTX670 FTW, which is my favorite of the 670s: 680 PCB, overclocks very well (expect around 1250-1300, or up to the high 1300s with the modded 1.21v BIOS), and has the legendary EVGA support behind it.

A single card will perform very well, but the biggest benefit over the 79xx is multi GPU scaling. Adding a 2nd will give you a solid 90 percent performance increase in most games, and even 3way SLI scales quite well when you are using a 1440p or higher resolution.
