Lets try not to get too off topic please. 1920x1080 gaming is the limitation here.

either build would be great for 1080 gaming. But seeing that I have a 144Hz monitor, i really want to utilize it. But i really want the experience to be as fluid as possible, not just raw FPS numbers.

From what I have read is that for the most part, 85% of the time, you cannot notice any difference in fluidity of the TITAN vs SLI 680's. The higher FPS number from the 680's should result in less stutter because frame time is less with each frame. On single monitor use, the stutter should almost be non existent correct?

I'll stop. redface.gif

Single monitor, along with the power savings (and less SLI headaches) I'd say single Titan.

very interesting indeed. I mean I already know the raw data associated with each build, But I am looking for user experience that could point me in the right direction. Few have said TITAN over SLi 680's and few have said the opposite. the big main key debate I am looking for is the difference in fluidity for a single monitor use. Can you REALLY notice a difference in the TITAN and the 680 setup. A difference that will make you go "wow, I am glad I chose the TITAN" or will it be like "Hmm, it seems pretty smooth, but the 680's seem just about the same"

In 1600P GTX 680 SLI is 15-40% faster then a Titan

But 1080P would hold GTX 680 SLI back a bit

I say get a 1440P monitor and a GTX 670/680 and if one card is not enough get another one later

But in the future, seeing that more people will be buying the 680's as newer card come out like people are doing with the 660's now, would it be utilized more as time goes by? Everyone has seen that even 660's are now a very good option in SLI.

I already do have a GTX 670, 2GB's. Which is why I am upgrading. 2GB's will hinder me within the next year or 2 and I will not have the money to upgrade for another 4-6 years. My university is EXPENSIVE!!! 20k a year. So I will be running on the same monitor and hardware for a long time to come. I feel that the 680's will be far more suitable for this time frame than 1 TITAN. But as TITAN's drivers improve this could be false. But 680 drivers will also improve as well and are already more mature.

I am coming down to the conclusion that the very small lack of fluidity with the 680's compared to the TITAN is worth the sacrifice for how long I will have to be waiting to upgrade again.

If you play many games, a single TITAN is a better choice IMO.

I speak from experience, after purchasing a second TITAN for SLI, and immediately having problems with flickering hair in Tomb Raider, lack of compatibility on War Thunder, and horrible scale on Bioshock Infinite (same performance as a single TITAN).

So, unless you really need to, always stick with single GPUs. I needed a second TITAN for optimal FPS @ 1440p + FRAPS.

If you play only a few select games with awesome 100% SLI compatibility, then a GTX 680 SLI would be a better and cheaper choice.

(slightly OT)

Don't forget, the 770 is right around the corner.

Only Skyrim with mods breaks the 2 GB VRAM barrier

I dont have a single game that breaks the 2 GB barrier and i have two 4 GB cards

Short version you would be better of with 2x 2 GB cards then 1x 4 GB or 6 GB card

770 is a overclocked 680

GK104 Respin (A3) (or is that only a rumor)

Anyway, since I'm no GPU guru, I'll leave it to them...I'd still stick to a single GPU solution for 1080p.
