Three 7970's will give you horrible gaming with anything above 60hz. Frame latency is horrible. I know first hand I have three of them. I rather have one Titan or one 780 over three or four 7970's

Good choice but why not wait for 780's ?

im guessing the price for the titan will fall maybe from 1k~ to 900$~ with the 780 at 700$ish but the titan will likely still be better "value"

hard pill to swallow, especialy if you want to watercool

Eh I probably wont have the $$ to water cool right away. Since id like to do the cpu and gpus at the same time.

in my opinion its still worth it to get the loop going for the cpu and just add the GPU blocks later.

that way you dont have to invest in both an air cooler to OC (have to to not bottleneck 2Xtitans wink.gif ) and also a water block later, youll only need to get the loop going (which can be rather cheap if you go about it the right way) and well worth the investment.

I'd go triple monitor in this case.

You (Presumably) will get 5760x1080. In comparison to 1440p, there will roughly 2.5 million more pixels with a higher refresh rate.

If your graphics solution can handle that, then that's the way to go.

I thin the typed of games played most frequently matters a little bit too.

If you do, that means you're all set for 120fps @ 120Hz, which LightBoost really benefits. In this case, definitely try out a LightBoost monitor. You will get this massive improvement in motion clarity during 120fps @ 120Hz. Here's the Motion Blur Comparison: 60Hz vs 120Hz vs LightBoost.
Quote:
60 Hz Refresh rate:
Each refresh is displayed continuously for a full 1/60 second (16.7ms)
CROPPED_60Hz-1024x341.jpg

120 Hz Refresh rate:
Each refresh is displayed continuously for a full 1/120 second (8.3ms)
This creates 50% less motion blur. This applies to regular 120Hz and overclocked 120Hz

CROPPED_120Hz-1024x341.jpg
^^^ The is all you'll get with overclocked 120Hz -- QNIX Q2710, Overlord X270OC, and Catleap 2B ^^^

120 Hz LightBoost:
The backlight is strobed briefly, once per refresh, eliminating sample-and-hold.
This has 85% to 92% less motion blur than 60Hz, depending on the LightBoost OSD setting.

CROPPED_LightBoost50-1024x341.jpg
^^^ This one above is CRT quality ^^^
Yes, LightBoost somewhat degrades color quality, so if color is more important, get the QNIX Q2710. It's a good compromise and is excellent resolution for other stuff like Photoshop, software development, office stuff, and slower games such as Civilization.

On the other hand, if you're successfully able to run 120fps@120Hz -- getting about 10x the resolution sharpness on LightBoost during fast motion is absolutely thrilling. Fast 180 turns, fast strafing, fast racing, with zero motion blur. If you're playing lots of video games, then it is a good compromise, the IPS viewing angles with 120Hz capability. But if eliminating motion blur is more important, definitely get LightBoost. It's ~7x to 12x sharper fast motion. Your choice.
