I just feel that people who bought Titans are being pushed to explain themselves when they don't really need to. A Titan isn't about price/performance ratio, and it should not be seen as such, it's about premium price for the best single gpu in the market. Are there cheaper XF/SLI solutions that perform better? Yes, there are. There are also other factors that people are not taking into consideration, higher double precision compute, lower PSU requirements, less noise and so forth.
The same way you don't want the "Herk der single gpu" argument, some people couldn't care less about price/performance ratio, and even then the same argument can be made for 2x 7850 vs 7970 to a lesser degree.

You're much better off with a matrix or a lightning unless you really need the memory....
There's a big difference between not knowing in not caring. For example, its a fact that its a single gpu, its an opinion that price/performance doesn't matter. Actually I wasn't even arguing price for performance, I was arguing that the level of performance of 1 card can be had easier somewhere else. Sure, not a lot out there will beat a few of them.
And finally, I don't care how you spend your money. Im just asking why. Although I will ask you what games you could possibly be running that need the memory Alatar, seeing as I've yet to touch the 3gb on my 7950s...
