Haven't you learned anything from all the intel vs. AMD cpu fights? AMD is better, we just can't see it because everything is intel biased so runs faster on intel. But AMD is better... biggrin.gif

Do people play Crysis over and over, I thought it was a 20 hour game if that. I have heard Skyrim using a lot of vram, if you can validate the price for the card on that game sure.

Well, if he wants to run at max settings at a high resolution then 1 Titan is still not enough, 2 yes, 3 more so. That's why 780's are more appealing, the horsepower is there with 2, maybe not the "future guarantee" of memory, but I don't think developers are going to go vram crazy just yet.
That's why in my original post I said if he was going 4k the best option would be to go with a titan and then get another one in a couple months. For 1440p I recommended 2 780s I even voted for them as well.

this debate is much simpler. there isn't some huge gulf in efficiency, ipc or drivers to chop away at each other with. people have to deal with hard facts when measuring the 780 vs the titan and people on both sides get disgruntled every now and then.

I bought two GTX 780s, and I've already sold one. In hindsight, I wish I'd bought a Titan, but at the time I talked myself into the GTX 780s with the 'more performance for the money' argument. It seems like a no-brainer... Except that SLI is the same minefield it was last time I tried it with 580s. Microstutter, other stutter, poor scaling and various game specific bugs. The most sound advice I can give you is: avoid SLI like the plague.

However, there's no doubt that the Titan is horribly overpriced.

If you think you'd be happy with a single Titan, then the chances are you'd be happy with a single GTX 780, so either get one 780, or wait for the new AMD cards to either broaden your choices or drive down the prices of your existing choices.

Sucks SLI has been bad for you. First time I'm using 3 cards and mostly 90+% usage across the board(bf3 not so much I think lol), I don't think Red Orchestra 2 even supports SLI yet I am seeing 95% on each GPU being used in Surround. Even with prior 690 or SLI 580s, I've seen less and less stutter as technology progresses. That's from me though, I've found that drivers were my main issue back when I had SLI 280s.

SLI is great for some people, not so great for others. It really depends on what titles you're going to run.

Take me for example, I spend most of my time playing Rift these days, and used to raid in WOW and EQ2 for years. SLI doesn't scale well in any of them. I started with Tri-SLI 680s, then moved down to 2-way SLI 680, then finally to a single 680, and then replaced that one with my GTX Titan. I am getting substantially better performance with the Titan than I did with Tri-SLI in the games that -I- play on a routine basis, despite the fact that Tri-SLI 680s have more raw GPU power. Almost as importantly to me, my power draw at the wall socket went from 840 watts down to 300 watts, which keeps the room a heck of a lot cooler in the summer.

If you got the excess cash, go for the Titans. If you're more interested in getting the better value, get the 780s. It really is that simple... Oh, and the 6GB vs. 3GB VRAM thing, LOL.
