Ahh, i suppose basing it on how old the cards were from new, you can add a few pounds/dollars...

LOL, mine is from 2010 :/

580 came out and was definitely not worth the cash to upgrade, 5% faster at the same clocks LOL...

I think the main thing here is WHEN to let your card/ cards go...

I suppose me and others who stayed with them, now suffer...

Cheers for showing me this side of it anyway, it was enlightening smile.gif

Correct but if I were to buy a 780 in Europe for 599 euro it still equals to $772 USD regardless.. am i wrong?

See that is funny, because I think the folks the bought the GTX670/GTX680 got screwed. Those were mid-range cards sold for a PREMIUM because they performed better than expected. The Titan @ a $1k could be further explained by how well the mid-range GTX680 sold @ $500+.

See, I never bought into the whole 6XXseries mess because those cards just seemed like a slap in the face from Nvidia when I looked over at my GTX580. The people that bought Titan knew what they were getting, but sadly had to pay more because so many others gobbled up the also overpriced GTX670/GTX680 for over a year!

Anyway, we all have opinions and my opinion is that the GTX670's/GTX680's with their castrated 256-bit memory bus and 2GB of ram will hit the bargain bin long before the Titan will. thumb.gif

Yeah, I think staying away from OCN for a few days and threads like these will help greatly!

Yes, or you could just buy it in the States for the US price of $599.  The point is that Europe gets screwed.  The number is the same, but the symbol/value is different, mostly because the US price doesn't include VAT.  The price you see at the store is what matters, not what it currency exchanges to, and if you see something priced at $299 Euro you can figure the US price is probably going to be pretty close to $299.

 

Edit: How do I get the Euro symbol?

No worries:thumb:, yeah my cards were prolly only 3.5 months old, never oc'ed, light use. If my mobo hadn't died I'd still be rocking em most likely. In a way though I'm kinda glad I was forced into selling them, recouped most of what I had spent plus ended up with a great upgrade.

I was a late adopter so I was able to pick up my 670s for around $390 (before MIR) each. I feel the Titan is horribly overpriced, but that's just POV really, if the Titan performed on par with a SLI 680 setup I could see the price tag warranted, but giving around 1.5x the perf with twice the price just does not seem right to me.

I agree! The Titan should have been $750 (what I paid for both of my 680's used)and the 780 priced at $500.
