If your not doing 1600p / 4k surround I do not feel you need a TITAN. It does help though for what I am doing. Going to 3 Titans.... Look at my benches in my Sig you can tell for yourself.
I'm sure benchmarks jump quite a bit, but practically speaking. I can see 4k surround demanding a lot of juice though, for sure.

God damn breathtaking if you ask me in most games
I don't think
x80 or x70's would be able to maximize on that one. If it was 1080p I'm sure they would but boy does the b/w spike up as well as amount of processing when u jump up into the 1440/1600 range
that's where these giants really flex their muscle.
I have a 144hz 3D monitor, but most games don't even support more than 60hz, and I haven't bothered with 3D glasses yet. At some point, when I'm finished with my education, I'll definitely look at a real surround setup. At the moment I've just connected my TV and a secondary display for watching movies etc while gaming.
At any rate, you guys should definitely check out Barnacules Nerdgasm on YouTube; he has the most insane PC setup I've ever seen. Check out his latest tour video.

Anyway, you seemed to have come to the correct conclusion that as you're mainly gaming then it makes no point in upgrading in your circumstance. Now, if you were doing video/rendering work then hell yes. As it is you just need to upgrade your GPU as and when the mood takes you or the the particular game or funds dictate. I'm waiting till the next version of Elite appears before changing my 670 as I'm not a hard core gamer like dpoverlord and LunaP
Yeah, many of us go to Sweden to purchase cigarettes, meat and such. Even with a long drive, it's worth it. Next version of Elite - Star Citizen? I'm looking forward to that one myself. I still have my 670 as well; waiting for the GTX 880 (or whatever it's going to be called) before I upgrade.Edited by Sehnsucht - 2/21/14 at 6:43am
