Thank you for the welcome Tomalak thumb.gif

I was asking why not AMD from the OP. Ya I could of worded the last part better, but I did state not trying to troll. And I'm not trying to derail a thread so he doesn't get the help he needs. It was the flat out refusal to use AMD that had me curious and i wanted to know why. I see that a LOT from people who use Nvidia stuff. They are just hateful when it comes to AMD/ATI GPUs. I have had both over the years, like and hated some from both companies. I look at things from a price/performance standpoint and go with what is better for me and my wallet. I almost got a 670 when i bought my 7950. But everything i was seeing about new drivers, and especially with most of the 7900 cards having a dual bios option, the cards were performing better than most of the 670s and are a decent amount cheaper. Maybe I should of PMed the OP but I'm sure I'm not the only one curious why he says flat out no AMD.

Second, whenever you post something like that, it inevitably turns the thread into Nvidia vs AMD battle, derailing the entire thing and lowering the chances of the OP getting the answers he needs.

OP, I think you would be great with whatever choice you decide to make.

In my opinion, I think the Titan is extremely overpriced. I don't think you'd ever use 6gb of VRAM unless you're going with a triple monitor setup. I would say that a GTX 690 would be your best bet. Depending if it's a friend of yours, maybe you could 'test' the 690 to see if it will fit your needs. If you feel like it's insufficient you can always see what the Titan has to offer.

I am not going to continue talking about AMD's frame latency issues, as it deviates us from the topic of this thread. Your earlier post was completely rude to the OP and it does not help in any way. After reading the OP you still go ahead and post that? Calling him a fanboy? (-_-)"... kinda childish you know?

You should listen to TOMALAK wink.gif he said all i wanted to say tongue.gif.... and btw..... Welcome! wave2.gif , i don't mean to be hostile... i have to study anger management books lol biggrin.gif

Thread Starter 
I just have never been happy with AMD, always have problems, and always have had good experiences with Nvidia products. In this case I am either going to get a 690 or a Titan, no other cards are an option, and will not be SLI'ing the Titans at this point in time.

I haven't read through the entire thread so I don't know what has been said yet, but as far as titan vs 690 it depends on what you are going to use it for. If you are just going to use one 1080p monitor for gaming, then I would seriously suggest going with the 690. However if you see that you are going to be using more than 2GB Vram (multiple monitors, high anti-aliasing, super high resolution mods, ENB series, ect) then go with the titan, and if you have a slight temptation, even though you said you wouldn't, on getting an SLI setup (or quad in the case of the 690) then go with the titan as it scales MUCH better.

I am sorry if you got a few interesting replies to the above,

Back to your point about the HD 7970s, I also own a pair of Matrix Platinum 7970s. When it comes to using my cards, my favourite are the GTX 690s, closely followed by the Titans. The HD 7970s are good cards but don't feel as polished and refined as the other two setups.

If you just want an Nvidia setup, why not SLI 670/680 4GBs? Pretty sure you can get a silent 670 setup if thats your thing.

While lots of people overrate how badly you need vram, I would be careful about the 2 GB (effective) vram that 690s have. While the Titan probably has about 3.5 GB more than you'll ever use, I'd question how far 2 GB will get you and I'd like to see GPU-Z graphs for them. Even if not now, perhaps in the future. A vram bottleneck is something that you can never deal with later on even if you'd otherwise maul the game with insane FPS. You can't OC to get more vram, nor mod it to.

I didn't care either and got a 6950 1GB, but only when I looked at charts did I notice that I was maxing out my vram (1920x1200). GTA 4 wouldn't even let me put the settings close to max because of perceived vram limits. Remember that there is a floor that can't be used by games, so you really have less than 2 GB to work with.

While I don't think I've gotten any readings higher than 1200-1400 mb (Skyrim), I haven't really checked more than a handful of times, nor in other games. Your resolution will also have higher requirement, as with your higher settings in games.

I dunno, I always feel like with a top end product, you should have tons and tons of breathing room. Its just like running an AMD with quadfire/quad SLI. The 8350 is a good CPU for most applications, but the lower FPS I'd be getting when I'm spending 4 digits on graphics would be worrying to me; I want to see the 100+ fps and the breathing room.

I'd like to see a large scale comparison of vram usage, especially for the new Metro game.
