On another note, how many Titans to sell does it take for this:

Not very many Titans, but a boatload of Teslas. wink.gif

There is actual merit to the discussion no need to act like people are simply bitter.

You are missing the point. Yes, we are free to talk about the Titans price. My point is you were making the same posts, with the same opinions, about the same prudct, 2 hours ago. This isn't directed solely at you, but everyone who has spent all day making the same points (from both sides). Hence why I mentioned we get your stance that the price/performance is way out of line on this card. Just like the other side says," I dont care about price/performance, and just want the fastest setup". Both sides are right for their own reason, and both sides are worng when they look at the other persons logic. I just hate seeing the same points being made over and over and over again for 12 hours straight now, mostly by same people over and over and over again.

I think we can all agree it has a substantial price premium. Based purely on performance it should rightly be priced around $750-800. Whether that $200-250 premium is worth it or not is up to the individual. In my situation adding a 2nd 670 makes much more sense, but I don't consider the Titan too onerously priced. If I was still on SLI 460s and deciding between SLI 670s/680s, 690, or Titan I'd probably go with the Titan just because SLI bugs me. It doesn't bug me enough to spend $1000 instead of $400 in my present situation though. wink.gif

But yeah, people going on and on about the price bug me just as much as all the people that are incessantly negative towards 21:9 displays.

Please find another hobby

Really I don't know how to respond to that remark.
You joined OCN 3days ago and posted 99 times in titan threads, little obsessed are we or are your just in here trolling because that's really funny. Another thing gladiator7 your going to tell me to find another hobby you need to stop while your ahead, building computers is one of my less expensive hobbies, heck I could buy 14 titans for the price of one paint job just paid for, when it's done I'll PM you a couple photos if you would like.
Also what's up with this every titan forum thread? I posted this in one forum, evga's forum that is I'd rather put money into my cars right now instead of my PC and? Also if you think a grand is a good price for the titan then go for it but I about bet you don't buy one because your hobby is most likely trolling... wink.gif

What I posted at EVGA,
It's always been every other generation for me it's not that I can't afford them it's just that I don't like to constantly throw money at my PC when it isn't needed for the games I play now, 3x680's is plenty for 2560x1600 but you can put me down for a couple evga titan2 or GTX880. Meantime I'll be throwing money at my cars instead.

I have seen what two posts now about people dumping their 690 for a titan. Seriously?! they cost the same yet the 690 is faster, plus you already have it. rolleyes.gif

Some enthusiasts go crazy for hardware. I just got out of my crazy spending spree phase. The most I have ever spent on a single rig is $1300 though.

Although I'm sure dual gpu cards have improved I vowed never to mess with them again after my 5970s. Cold boot bug thing and pretty poor scaling for a long time until drivers improved.

And as for the price I'm not knowledgeable enough to say what's worth what but I will say 1k$ makes decided on 2 or 3 much harder, I bought 2 ek blocks today and finding it hard to pull the trigger on 3, probably stick with 2. 800$ would have been low enough for me to grab 3 without hesitation.

It must have flew over the head of the guy who I was quoting, that's why I posted it again, and quoted him directly.

and nothing I posted was even approaching harassment.

I wouldn't want more than one to be entirely honest. tongue.gif

You really think a single Titan could be enough for my 7680X1600 set-up? Stalker CoP Complete, Metro 2033, Crysis 2 and 3, BF3, etc... 1 Titan would be enough to play those game with a steady 60 fps?

Won't happen. At 3840x2160 @ 60Hz the pixel clock is at 533.28 MHz. The limit for DP 1.2 is 540Mhz. Thus no overclocking 4K displays with current interconnects. HDMI is limited to 340Mhz and Dual Link DVI doesn't cope well over 500MHz. HDMI 2.0 will only be 600MHz, so yeah, we're stuck at 4K @ 60Hz for a few years at least.

On highest settings, doubtful according to all the charts I have seen.
