Wow. I think that's the first time I've seen actual spam in the forums.

Just got off of Crysis 3 on my 690 and hitting 2GB dropping me down to 10-14FPS. Terrible..

... And THIS is why Murlocke is mistaken as far as my motives and need to upgrade. Unfortunately upon release, 680s were limited to 2GB (for a while actually), and as such, even BF3 will stutter on occasion @ 1440p 4xMSAA, and a 690 at my Resolution with 4x MSAA runs at roughly 27fps avg going by recent benches in Crysis 3, therefore assuming perfect scaling (which would never happen past 2 cards), I'm looking at 108fps @ 1440p 4xMSAA in Crysis 3, but more realistically, I'd be expecting around 80-90 steady, with dips down to 60-70 at times, which is the ideal scenario for an FPS, and the ideal scenario for ANY future FPS released over the next 18 months (of which there SHOULD be zero single GPU competition for Titan).

^^ The Comparison above is assuming the Titan will resemble the 690 in raw performance, which most of us assume it will not come too close, but will perform roughly 80% as well.

Now for 99% of the titles out there, you would be correct. However, given the infrastructure of my rig, it is not overkill in the slightest. My CPU and PCIe lanes can handle it as much as any other rig out there can at the moment, as there is nothing better platform wise, besides a Dual Xeon rig (when they're unlocked for OC, which is who knows when?). There is nothing wrong with adding NOS to a V8 (X79), but there IS a problem adding a 200 shot of NOS to a Geo Metro 3 cyl. If I were in that boat, and even if I had a 3770k, I would NEVER think of using more than 2 GPUs, but I know once I add these Titans, it will not only be a benching beast, but it will be easy to tinker with and overclock, as well as watercool, and once 4K hits the market (which is what I'm waiting for, as I'm not a fan of Surround setups or Eyefinity as it gives me a headache) then I'll be ready for everything out there.

If the Titan didn't have 6GB of VRAM, I wouldn't think of investing this much into so many, but there is NO reason with the raw polygon pushing power that those cards will have, and the memory bandwidth available via the 384bit bus, that they would ever be GPU limited before they're VRAM limited, which is the ideal scenario to be in. Not the other way around, when you have 4 680s with 2GB of VRAM, or 2 690s with 2GB of VRAM per GPU, and you're dropping into the teens in a title where the 4GB cards are quadrupling your framerate. There was no excuse for Nvidia to release a $500 GPU with 2GB of VRAM, period.

Actually one of the reasons i ditched my 4x 2GB 680's. It was a PITA being bottlenecked by vram long before horsepower.

Titan is not marketed for people who want the "best card for the money". It's marketed to enthusiasts who want the fastest BEST card out there and are willing to pay for that.

Indeed, Titan is marketed for those want the best of the best, NOW, not later, not in a few months, and can pay the price. I really got sick and tired of these children bickering around about what's better, or bashing each other with the rig they are running.

Even two highly overclocked water cooled Titan's are not going to be able to beat 4x 680's or 7970's. Unless CPU limiting comes into play (IE low resolution) , poor 4-way vs 2-way drivers/scaling or the 4-way setups hit a VRAM limit that the Titan's extra memory overcomes.
