¿SLI GTX 680 or GTX 690 or GTX TITAN or CF 7970 Ghz? - Page 4

post #31 of 62
That makes titan even worse. Its funny that nvidia released a graph that compare 3xtitans vs 2x690 when actually sli stop to scale after the 2 cards.

I haven't followed 7950 pricing closely...that would mean what in savings...$150 when 7950 CFX vs 7870 XT CFX?

7950s can be had for the low price of 299.99.

Thats about 59 dollars savings from a 7970, and 99~89 dollars more expensive than a single 7870Ghz/XT whatever.

That's using newegg pricing, if you can find it for cheaper good on you.

7870 XT/LE cards go for around 240, sometimes less after rebates...Two or three of them would rock nicely for 1080p, not higher cause they only sport 256bit bus and 2gb vram (right?)

I understand many persons would think a single Titan is a waste on 1080p, my concern about future proofe come from the fact that i live in thirdworldist southamerican country, with many problems and is a feat manage to ship a Computer component from USA (hard corruption and thiefs everywhere, not mention High Customs dutys), here you just can't sell your video cards as easy as you do in America on Ebay, and hope to have a clean and fast transaction trough Paypal and buy again every single year. NOP, We cannot do that, here is even a problem to offer your video card with out been watched as a posible victim or kidnappen by gangs, i am ashame to say this but is the truth. Rest of people who can afford to buy, NEVER will buy used items for the same reasons too many scammers.

So, once you have a computer you stay with that computer, you can extend, update adding new rig, then finally giveaway to your brother or a family, sell is never an option. That's why i considered TITAN in the long term i will benefit from his 6 GB and ability to SLI more later, GTX 690 with that thing about VRAM stuck at 2 GB don't give me hopes, not sure about the consecuenses of adding a second GTX 690 later.

If i SLI GTX 680 or 7970 Ghz still it will be the defenitive rig not allowing me to upgrade more until the computer broke or cant even handle the most simple game in the market, that's why im not considering lower perfomance video cards as the Impressive GTX 670 or 7870

Wow man! where do you live? I live in Argentina and it's definitely not that bad here...I do get most of the stuff from the US or Ebay though (big price difference)
I think in your context the Titan would be a nice choice.

Argentina is bit better than where i live that i preffer to dont mention it, in Argentina there are even company assemblers of Pc components, here there are nothing but just a bunch of resellers with no mercy overpricing and not sell the good stuff, here neither GTX 680 is selled. Argentina is way better when you compare my pathetic country.

Titan is goin to be overpassed pretty soon i fear, 30% FPS over 7970 Ghz edition is quite annoying, in this scenario an hipotetical 8970 Ghz edition could close ot it for 15 or 20 % betther than current 7970. That's not good.

In the other side we have GTX 690 is quite impressive, maybe i could get one and next year another one, i dont think two GTX 690 are bad choice neither no matter what some people say.

Benchmarks lastnight in the valley thread show a 1150 core titan 15% faster then a 1300 core 7970. 15% for 600 dollars more. Thats what made me say screw wasting momey on titan. Yeah its a monster but a very overpriced one at that.

Yep, if you can wait for the next gen cards it might be worth it. If not get dual 7970 ghz cards.
