When you up it that way, I guess there's no harm.

When Maxwell comes around, Volta will be out a year or 2 after, are you gonna wait for that too? smile.gif



Haswell or IB + 7xx should be a very nice upgrade for what ever you have now. wink.gif

The thing with technology is that there's always something new and shiny right around corner. If you get caught up in the waiting game, you will always be waiting for the next best thing, JMO.

Heheh, yeah. People always say that, 'You'll wait for that, then they'll be something else just round the corner!' blahblah. Which is true, But in a way Kepler is coming closer to it's closure than if I waited for Maxwell, Volta is very tempting I must admit xD but I don't have THAT much patience.

For me I can't afford to upgrade every chance I get, every time the next minuscule thing comes out. So I'd rather be as up to date with hardware as I can if you get me. If I were to wait for Maxwell then I'd be "up to date" for the longest amount of time rather than getting Kepler right now. The 7xx are just refreshes more or less so... it doesn't excite me TOO much /:

But either way, jumping from a ATI HD 3870 to a 670/80 770/780, and a Intel 2 Core Quad Q8200 2.33ghz to a i7 3770k or Haswell would be a VERY nice jump (;

If I were to wait for Maxwell though, Broadwell wouldn't be too far off either, I'd be afraid that the waiting game (CPU wise) wouldn't pay off though, feel like Broadwell won't be that much of a performance boost and it'll be more focused around tablets/mobiles again :< even though it will be a "Tick"

Heh, I've only just wanted to get a new system this year. So it's not like I've been like 'Oh I'll wait for this, oh but now this is coming soon, I'll wait for that' so on and so on, as I've said, I've had the same system for 6 years nearly and have only just wanted to upgrade this year biggrin.gif I'm a patient fellow that doesn't really get tempted by the upgrade bug. The only thing that needs doing with this is it needs new harddrives, as mine has failed many a time this year, which isn't bad, 5 years going strong on a WD Caviar Blue I think.

Either way I'll be spending less than I would on Titan SLI, and with ~10% less performance than I'd get with 2 Titans, I think I'll live biggrin.gif

Hop aboard the Titan buyers remorse express, loads have people have already done it biggrin.gif

Sell now while you can recoup the money, then use it towards two more sensible priced cards. Sounds like a great idea to me thumb.gif

Maybe I should just sell one Titan, use the money from that to buy two 780's and then keep the other Titan to replace the 580 Lightning in my backup rig?

680 and 7970 trade blows depending on the game. There is no clear cut winner and some of us would prefer to buy from a company who actually puts out quality drivers. If that makes me a fanboy so be it.

My PC is also used for work buddy, when it comes to gaming I go for bang for buck. I don't need two Titans to play games when two cards that cost much MUCH MUCH less do a good job. I can't skimp on CPU performance because it helps me get my work done quicker, if AMD had a cheaper alternative damn straight I would buy that **** right now and get this 3960X on Ebay faster than you can post a fanboy comment about Nvidia..

Right now the 3960X is best CPU for me, was £500 brand new, when it comes to gaming you can combine two lesser GPU's to make better performance than some of the stupidly priced GPU's. I'll leave those type of GPU's for the uber nerds and fanboys.. Common sense really, for some common sense doesn't apply to buying GPU's etc. For me it dictates don't spend more money than you have to.

Titan owners (including myself unfortunately, cursed the day I bought them mad.gif), prepare the "Vaseline"

780GTX is coming at half price for 90% of the performance lachen.gif

A Titan in a backup rig, wow that is some backup rig? IS it there just in case your main rig breaks and you must carry on gaming?

I would sell both, buy 2 780's and take your girlfriend out somewhere nice and take a break from gaming biggrin.gif
