That's a tough one for me :/

Considering the above, the 7850 is already struggling in some of the newer games, a great example of this being Crysis 3.. By the beginning of next year I personally expect that you will be dropping settings at least SOME of them to the mediums at 1080p to maintain 50+ FPS. With a decent overclock however you might be able to get the highs but at this date and time it is pretty hard to predict what level PC gaming will be at considering how fast technology is advancing in this day and age.

But for now I say enjoy what you have and enjoy the release of the PS4 and XBOX 720 console ports and moarr games thumb.gif

I think that the 7850 will be able to hold its own for quite awhile against the consoles. Against newer pc games using current tech? maybe not so much, but it should be able to provide better visuals than a console I would expect. It should take the developers for consoles about 2-3 years to fully understand what they are working with, then we will truly start to see what the consoles can do. The first gen of next consoles usually is not very far ahead of the last, at least from when xbox went to xbox360.

Worried about what? Consoles don't have new tech, they have proven tech, and that tech came from computers. Assuming you have the money - your rig will always have the ability to be superior to any console that hasn't even hit the market yet.
APU what?

2 670s beat a titan, I love my SLI 670s. I maxed crysis 3 with awesome fps. Titan is a gimmick. It's a great card on its own, but is a gimped workstation card tesla that nvidia decided to market because of amds popularity of the 79xx cards. You have always been able to buy "titan-esque" cards, you just never knew about them because they had not been marketed to the public. You can easily buy a $1500 card that will have the same gaming performance as 2 $700 cards. Titan was a poor attempt from nvidia at getting tons of people to waste money, shame on them. Titan is basically what should have been a GTX 785, with the 780 being a little less. Anyway, titan is only worth it if you have enough money to throw away on buying two of them. Other than that, SLI will beat a titan, even SLI 660s from what I have seen. Plus, it's not like games like crysis are so far into the future advanced, they are just unoptimized. Just look at the rope physics problems.

You wont be seeing anything a simple gpu upgrade wont take care of anytime soon and with Intel's focus on low power parts not performance you wont have anything but hyperthreading to bank on for many years to come as I doubt they'd give us more physical cores over gaming performance. They really dont care about that market.

Our PC's were already 'Next Gen' a few years ago.
