this. Why not triple SLI the gtx 670? They will destroy anything...unless you want to get 2 gtx 680 4 GB for the future, which might be a better idea depending on how long until you are going to upgrade.

So far Titan looks like a waste of money because the price is too high for performance you can get with other cards. Does anyone know how well triple SLI works for the 670s? I assume it shouldn't be a problem now with the adaptive v-sync.

Above 1600p (kind of the threshold IMO) resolutions, I think it's worth getting 2xTitan in SLI if you have the money. The performance is there both on FPS and frame latency. Check out some of the Titan SLI reviews.

As for GTX670 in triple SLI, isn't that a little overkill for 1080p? JMO, but I think it would make more sense to get 2x670 SLI (good non-reference design & maybe even 4GB cards), then put the other money towards a possible future upgrade to a 1440p, 1600p or triple 1080p monitors. Then you could add a third GTX670 or upgrade, etc.

Edit: FWIW, I definitely think there are advantages to a single GPU solution. So even at 1080p, a single Titan is a great choice for graphics - it's just not the best "bang for the buck" at that resolution IMO. If I had a lot of extra cash to burn, I'd be first in line for a Titan.

You are correct if you want to max out everything for every title (unfortunately). If you have the cash, I think Titan in SLI let alone triple SLI is the way to go for higher resolutions. Factoring price, at 1600p, if you don't mind SLI, then better to go 2xGTX680 4gb (or Radeon 7950/7970) over a single Titan - at least that's how I read the reviews. If you want a single GPU (not card) and/or have GPU compute needs and are willing to give up some gaming performance, then the Titan is the way to go at 1600p.

That being said, for me $1000 is a tough entry price given the Titan's relative performance. "Close, but not quite" is the way I would phrase it, but again JMO.

I don't understand why anyone would consider such powerful cards for 1080P gaming. I'm sure something a 7950 would absolutely destroy all modern games @ 1080P w/ 60+FPS without a single issue.

Regardless, I would go for the single GPU solution (Titan) It will be much less problematic.

^^7950 no not maxed aa and stuff like that thumb.gif

http://www.guru3d.com/articles_pages/crysis_3_graphics_performance_review_benchmark,7.html

I would say the 690
Its the same price and has more power.

At 60Hz, I agree with you and normally would recommend at most a single GTX680/Radeon 7970 for 1080p/1200p unless one absolutely had to play every game at max settings. In this case, the OP has a 120hz monitor so a set up that delivers FPS well above 60 with max settings makes sense. As for the Titan, I agree with you price independent even though it won't be as fast for gaming as 2xGTX680/Radeon 7970 or 7950, or a GTX690. Just depends on what's important to the OP - including overall purchase "value".
