Since I am going with SLI this first slot will run at x8 PCI-Ex 3.0 which is effectively x16 PCI-Ex 2.0. Any idea if this will affect performance in games? probably nothing noticeable right, like 1% difference? If the performance difference is only 1% then I can just overclock the card and get the performance back that I lost. biggrin.gif

The second card will run in slot 4 which will be PCI-Ex 3.0 at x16. So both will still be running PCI-Ex 3.0 but the first will run at x8 as apposed to x16 that the bottom card will get.

By doing this I have put a large gap between the 2 cards which should allow more air to get between them.


Gonna need a long sli bridge dont forget that.

It is more than capable of running Metro 2033 on max settings. It will also play Crysis 3 on max settings in 1080p just fine at 35FPS. If you want more FPS, then just enable FXAA. Titan can play all games on 1080p max and its the only single GPU that is able to.

fact: Titan cost the same that Sli configurations 15 - 20 % higher on FPS (making able to max out those games).
7970GHz in CF is 8% faster than a single Titan. 680 SLI is 12% faster than Titan. You get micro stuttering with both CF and SLI. You don`t get it with Titan.
Quote:
fact: Titan was created for calculation and scientifics stuffs, things you woundnt use never on gaming
I would say you are partly right, but you presented it entirely wrong. Titan is good with both. Its the king in GPGPU and its the king in gaming (single GPUs).
Quote:
fact: Titan has less microstuttering than Sli Configs. (at this point microstuttering is almost inperceptible on current gen of video cards)
It have much less microstuttering. But no, its not inperceptible. Go read reviews. 690 is having least microstuttering because of some technology, 680 SLI still have microstuttering, 7970GHz SLI have most of it. I won`t go in to bigger details than that, we have been discussing it so many times now.
Quote:
fact: having roughly 30 % more FPS than current 7970 Ghz edition, an hipotetical 8970 Ghz could also get 20 % - 30% with overclock, having the Titan soon overpassed.
8970GHz WILL be a brand new architecture. Generally new architecture changes see a pretty good performance jump, so yeah, it could overtake Titan. But 8970GHz is coming out in Q4 2013 at EARLIEST. Most likely early 2014. Which is exactly when Maxwell from Nvidia is out too, battling against 8970. Its just the way it is, you won`t have the most powerful rig much long in the computer world. New hardware is out all the time
Quote:
fact: we have the " I buy whatever i want to buy at the cost i want and nobody cares what i do with my money, i can give it all to nvidia if you prefer" phylosophy .
Is this really an Nvidia philosophy? What about the guys with an overkill CPU? What about the people who game on 1080p with 4x7970GHz? Its a right as an individual to get to buy whatever you want.
Quote:
Don't harrasme again, tell me i'm wrong and that's it. Titan isnot logic even having the money.
Maybe its not logical for you, but its that for a lot of other people. You don`t know how much these people earn per year. They obviously can afford the GPU, since they buy it. YOU might go after the performance/$ philosophy, others don`t. People see things different, maybe the bigger picture. PhysX, drivers, stuttering, the brand they prefer, best GPU cost whatever it cost, etc etc. People are different. The continued critism of Titan buyers is uncalled for.

I honestly don't know how they get away with this.

Regardless, when I buy three GTX Titans and I will at some point this year, they will be from overseas. Even if I have to cop GST importing them, plus postage they will still be significantly cheaper.

Just tried Crysis 3 on my PC and yeah, I need three GTX Titans. Lol.

I just purchased crysis for $50 express post. i was going to buy from Origin and then thought surely i can get it cheaper than $99

I'm Playing Crysis 2 at the moment and im loving it. First time ive played it.

seems fair ... may i ask; what configuration would you get today if you would know you won't and you can not buy another PC in many years?

A hard question

Today? If money is no problem?

GTX Titan SLI. Best performance out there, it even beats 3x7970 and 3x680. You get 6GB of VRAM instead of 2/3GB of VRAM which will be useful for future games. You get 500W instead of 750W/600W. You might get a bigger driver boost than the rest since this is a new GPU. I say maybe because its a Kepler after all. Titan SLI is also pretty quiet compared to other SLI configurations http://www.sweclockers.com/image/diagram/3464?k=fac60bd5453f8ac3cd549c307e83ba0f, http://www.guru3d.com/index.php?ct=articles&action=file&id=2444

If money is an issue?
I might have to think about that. I really don`t know

If you could wait a little longer?
GTX 780 is coming out. Rumors say announced in March. From there it isn`t long way to GTX 790 which is two GTX 780s on the same card. It will beat Titan for sure. Price for this GPU is probably around $1099. But who knows, there might be a while until they are announced. 7990 is also most probably coming too from AMD.

Well if it's the GPU that concerns you the most go with Titan , later on when price will drop you can always add another one and Titan SLI is a much better choice than 690 quad SLI.
Of course you have to plan ahead with suitable motherboard ............
I for myself decided to go with 690 as i have a single 1440p monitor , budget of $1000 so no option to go Titan SLI and i will probably upgrade again by the end of the year , that would depend on the performance of new cards of course.

I might have to think about that. I really don`t know

Is kinda no an issue, cause im planing to sell my old motorcycle to buy this new Pc, Ok, lets wait like a month to see customed and signatures titans (god i hope they drop a bit in price) then put every thing on a 3930K + 32 Gb ram that should be enough for some years. then next year i will get another titan if is still on production.
