The only good reason to get a Titan is if you need the extra 3GB of VRAM that it provides.

The differential in terms of SMX clusters (14 for Titan, 12 for 780) isn't big enough to justify the additional price, especially if you're using a single monitor (regardless of size).
Code:
NAME          CHIP CUDA TMU ROP SMX BASE BOOST MEMCL BUS MEMSZ MSRP
780          GK110 2304 192  48  12  863   900  6008 384  3072 $649
TITAN        GK110 2688 224  48  14  837   876  6008 384  6144 $999

its really up to you as do you think youll need it 7970 is a bad ass too
would definently go 780 over titan it just aint worth the bang for the buck

How about adding another 7970 to your system? At 1440p, 2 7970s will give you better performance than a Titan and the upgrade will be cheap for you too.



Of course 2 7970 ghz's will give you slightly better performance than a 7990. Plus AMD's crossfire frame time fix is around the corner.

If you feel you need to upgrade, to play with better graphics and high framerates, I'd say go for the GTX 780.

Cheaper than the Titan, and can be overclocked easily to it's speed.

Personally, I avoid SLI/Xfire setups if possible. Single cards will be quieter, cooler, use less power and you wont have to deal with dual card problems in games.
