I'm offering an opinion as a business owner/vendor that's sampled this offering thoroughly. Not saying more beyond that but, Tom's as well as practically every single reviewer worth a damned has said the same thing:
"Don't spend the 1k if you're just gaming because you're wasting your money"
I don't know how to be quite clearer but, I'm here to help my fellow "compadres" save some cash.
Say you're right which, I'm not able to confirm/deny, 2x 780's will cost 50$ or so more than a Titan and yet, have better overall performance.
You're ultimately free to spend your money how you choose...I'd rather save your pockets in a garbage economy if I can...Call it goodwill towards other enthusiasts.
IMO, It comes down to if the person likes SLI/CF and does not have problems with Microstuttering.
Basically the way I see it if you have ~$1000...
If you prefer Single GPU and no microstuttering: Titan
If you prefer Dual GPU, don't care or don't notice microstuttering: 780s or 690
I don't think either will be an "awful" choice... The dual GPU setup will probably perform better on average, but have more driver issues.

Honestly this is the most reasonable post i've seen all day. Going with 2 lower end GPUs has always offered more price per performance ratio... there is no difference here. You still have many people that don't want to consume that much power, deal with microstuttering or driver issues, or have that much heat coming out of their case. Titan is great for these people, and for those really rich people they always have the option of 2 or more Titans.Edited by Murlocke - 2/19/13 at 7:30am
