Which prices are you comparing it to?

I live in Italy and hardware prices are like 30/40% higher, and I believe this applies to all european countries.

If I wanted to buy a Titan, I'd definitely buy it from the US and save myself a couple hundred euros tongue.gif

bought mine when I was at singapore a few weeks ago and it was priced really good there. with that said I wouldn't recommend it to anyone. twas a good little bump from my gtx 680 but it's not worth 1000USD to be honest.

Please save your money. Literally no improvement in games that you can SEE, well unless you have like 3 monitors at 2560x1600, and even then you're probably better off getting a 7990 for the high resolution. I really see no reason to go Nvidia for any reason usless you need Physx or CUDA, or if you're getting a 680 if you want something between a 7970 and a 7990.

I partly agree with this post.

I highly recommend getting a 7970 over a gtx 680 it's faster, cheaper, more vram and comes with A++ games BUT if you're going multi gpu configurations it's best to just get either two gtx 680's or a gtx 690. if you've read about frame rating you'll see that crossfire has issues with this atm while SLI works flawlessly. a gtx titan is just for bragging rights. I hardly felt the upgrade tbh

I said with frame rating rolleyes.gif a multigpu setup is a pain in the butt both for amd and nvidia. I've owned crossfire and sli setups these past few years. it's only this gen that I've opted for a single card setup because of my cheapo motherboard's bad pci slot placement. i just can't throw away a perfectly working sound card even though it''s old biggrin.gif

Yes, but I doubt he'll be spending 2-$4000 SLI-ing Titans wink.gif
