well regardless, 3 680/780's will be cheaper than 2 titan. So I guess we'll have to see when the benchmarks come out :T

If by chance the 780 is about 25% more powerful then a 680...

I was doing 110 fps on Heaven and after checking the charts here:
http://www.overclock.net/t/1235557/official-top-30-heaven-benchmark-4-0-scores/0_50

I am just doing quick math:
110*1.25 = 138 fps

Now Closest Titan Tri-Sli => 151 fps => %9.5

So...

Tri-Titan cost $3000

Tri-780 cost $1500-2100

A minimum $900 (Max $1500) premium for %9 difference.

Wow! That's really something. about $1000 for %9???
that means it completely demolishes it if the Titan's were in SLI not Tri-SLI
well now I definitely know what i'm getting.... thank you!
I'd still like to see the votes/posts, and the official benchmarks when the card is released.
Also, I would have to wait until a waterblock is out for it. And if there will be any other versions of the card with higher VRAM.

I'd just like to say thank you all for your votes and posts, I hope to continue to see more inputs so I can decide on the best setup(s) smile.gif

I just went from tri sli 4GB 680s to tri sli Titans. I game at 7860x1600.

I say for resolutions up to 2560x1600 go with 680s or 780s depending on pricing. For one monitor my old setup could shred anything I threw at it and the cards were worth about a grand total...good deal.Titans have only really shown weak scaling at low resolutions or in games where the drivers weren't really all there. At multi-monitor resolutions they increase their lead bigtime.

For three big monitors go for the Titans, hands down, no contest. I see plenty of games using over 3GB of memory and some very close to 4GB. You'd need to get the 6GB 780s which would entail probably paying $700+ per card and waiting for non-reference to hit, whereas if you shop around you can get people to sell you their Titans for $900 or less.

Not just based on the Titan, its the same chip/card just severely crippled.

Of the options, the triple titan will likely be the best performer, and only slightly more expensive than two titans.

It's not really $1000 for 9%. Buy the Titans used for around $900 each. You'll also probably get $100-$150 more each than 780s are going for when you sell at the end.

Realistically if you go for used Titans, there's less than a $500 difference to own them for 1-2 years once you take resale into account. Less if you need the 6GB 780s.

Why the hell would you pay 900 bones for a used titan if you can buy a new one for just 100 more?

10% savings is trivial. If you can't afford that extra 2 or 300 dollars on a build that is going to run upwards of 4k... you can't afford the build. I would never buy a 1000 GPU used, unless its less than 700 lol

That is... actually a really good way to put it o.o
I only planned to buy a 5GB or 6GB version of the 780. And if it only trails 200-300 from the titan, i'll definitely go for the titan. Thanks for your input smile.gif
