Oh, you mean the overclocking monitor feature that works on maybe 10% of the market's monitors currently? ~ The ones that no enthusiast really wants? That feature is the one you're discussing?
Hrm, wonder why I wouldn't address something that I haven't seen actually work in the past 2 months...

It actually is a nice card. It comes at a pricepoint where there is 0 competition in that market. Nvidia will make a total killing.
For the gamer, you have other options that are right around the corner. That will be better for gaming.
If you fold + game, you can't beat the card. It's genuinely a nice card.
If you just game and have a mid-tower, this card isn't for you, you can do better by exercising some patience.
I have plenty of nice things to say about this card but, they aren't geared at gaming because for $1000, you can actually do better with SLI.
I have quad 680's on my current rig, I do agree there are major SLI issues on the X79 platform, same is true of Crossfire but, once again, I strongly urge those of you who have the cash, to wait just a bit longer and a better option for GAMING, will be readily available.
Interesting that you selectively pick which part of my comment to answer. Now you omitted the first part. You didn't comment on the second sentence of the part you did chose to quote either.
About the Korean monitors:
1. Did you actually read the HUGE threads that are going on in this forum and other forums about these monitors ? How did tech sites suddenly notice them ?;
2. How many monitors with overclocking features actually existed before this ? This is a new market that just emerged. And it's getting noticed, first by enthusiasts, then by tech sites, and now EVGA and Nvidia jumped on the bandwagon;
3. How many times does a product that is the first to market does everything right even more so when we're talking about very affordable monitors that can do something no other IPS 27" 1440p monitor can do ? And how would you say overclocking should work perfectly on every single one of them ? Not even CPUs all overclock the same. Some are good at it, some aren't. In any case, when you compare percentages, these monitors overclock on a bigger percentage compared to their default refresh rate than any CPU out there. Even if you can 'only' overclock the monitor to 90 Hz, that is a 50% overclock compared to the default 60 Hz.
About the Titan:
1. What do you mean by waiting a little longer ? For enthusiasts, time is important. If you mean we are six months away from the GTX 700 series, then the Titan is worth the money now
. Even more so considering that:
a) You dodge the SLI / Crossfire issues: From TH:
In the most demanding titles, two GK110s scale much more linearly than four GK104s
b) You dodge complicated or loud cooling solutions for dual or triple or quad card configurations;
c) For high resolutions in multiple monitor gaming this card makes more sense than buying a GTX 690, which has less VRAM and comes with SLI problems;
d) a single Titan is going to use less power than two GTX 680s or a GTX 690, or at most the same. This will give you less cable clutter (compared to two GTX 680's) and better airflow inside the case;
Having said all this, of course the Titan is for a small minority, just like supercars are just for a small minority, but that doesn't mean they are not the object of desire and definitely have a place for those few who can afford them.Edited by tpi2007 - 2/19/13 at 7:31am
