And im sure many others do need that kind of power at 2560x1400 my GTX 680 hasn't really been cutting it.

You mean your 680 hasn't ran them at total maximum settings with full AA.

Far Cry 3 ran just fine on my 570 with 2560x1440 and it was very smooth and playable.

The problem is that some people just measure how well their game plays by looking at their FPS instead of enjoying the game for what it is. The majority of people (console players) play the same titles we do at 30 FPS, and that is how the developers designed them to be.

Wait wait, $1199 NZD = $968 USD.

That's $968 USD for a card that actually costs $650 USD.

It sucks for us NZ'ers. Badly. Even the Aussies have far more sensible prices ($750 AUD+).

Agreed Tippy.
Here in AU they are going for $730

30FPS sux, plain and simple.

In games like GTA among others the FPS drops to the low 20's and it turns into a slideshow when blowing everything up, same goes for BF3 and so forth. Consoles are weak, they need to jack up the CPU's to at least 3Ghz+ and put a nice cooler on that CPU/GPU unlike the garbage that my PS3 fat has. I hope the heatsink for these consoles is sufficient, would be a disaster if they overheat biggrin.gif

Bought my evga 780 for 672 euro or 866,07 USD.
I still think it's worth it, I'm building my first rig and price doesn't concern me too much.

All in all, the price is a completely subjective matter, if you think it's too high obviously it's not a card you need or want.
If you can't afford it, don't buy it.
If you don't want to pay the price, don't buy it.

And the whole discussion about titan seems rather silly, those who bought titan and now regret it wasn't meant to buy Titan in the first place.
The next series should be better than the previous, otherwise, what's the point in launching a new series.

Now let's see what Volcanic Islands got on store for us. This is way overpriced at the moment IMO

^At least its not double, Tippy; that's the minumum price of almost anything here compared US prices - and our dollar (BMD) is more or less equal to the US dollar.

Not as far as that price suggests!

Just buy cards direct from EVGA and have a freight forwarder post it. Then you pay same price as everyone else plus $66 for DHL express postage including insurance and plus postage to and the freight forwarder fee which is never over $20, so it's no big deal and cheaper than Australian prices.



And the EVGA cards from PCCG are the only sub $750 GTX 780s in Australia. Most are $850 with some people selling Galaxy and Gainward versions for $770-780.
