I personally would not recommend running SLI Titan X on a 4 GHz 2500k if that's as high as you are comfortable overclocking. If you have to upgrade your motherboard anyways, then I'd recommend getting a new CPU as well (Haswell or Haswell-E depending on budget etc).

You also have to consider that the 2500k only supports PCI-e 2.0, and I do not recommend running Titan X SLI on PCI-e 2.0 x8 speeds, which would mean that if you wanted to keep your CPU, you'd be looking for a fairly expensive motherboard with a PLX chip to give you 2x PCI-e 2.0 x16. Again, better off just upgrading the whole platform.

Depending on his budget, he will see insame improvements with titan x/sli over any CPU offering. If he can find a cheap mobo and keep his CPU for now.Then be able to buy 2 titan x's instead it wont matter if hes running x8 or pcie 2.0. his gains will blow any cpu upgrade out of the water. Just as well he can then decide to upgrade the cpu a little later.

He hasn't said what resolution he's gaming at. If he's gaming at 1080p or even 1440p, then there is NO point in him picking up Titan X SLI as he will be horribly CPU limited in almost everything.

And PCI-e 2.0 x8 is likely to hamper his performance noticeably, at least at 1440p or below in SLI. (2.0 x8 = 1.1 x16)

Why on earth would you drop the kind of money that two Titan X cards cost if they're not going to be able to perform optimally? It may be OK on triple screen or 4k gaming, but that's about it.

So the 2500 is not a K series CPU? If that's the case, then you should definitely be upgrading the system first.

This.

Not to mention the 8Gb system RAM is going to get swallowed up quick and then the page file running on the HDD is going to be a massive bottleneck.

You'd think so, but so often i see people throw all their cash in one area and neglect others. Like a 4k monitor for gaming, then complaining about poor fps with a gtx 570. There's a lot of folk like that out there.

Eh, the 2500K was an OC beast. If he had one that could run at 4.8-5 GHz, why not add 1 Titan-X? I would not go Titan-X SLI with anything that old though. He would be limited to 8x PCIe 2.0 in both slots if he had a board that supported SLI.

I get what you're saying, k cpu's since Sandy Bridge are still very capable even today, But running 2 high end gpus (Titans) with a 2500 non-k is a very unbalanced system. You have over 2k in gpu's and 150 if that in a cpu. Completely unbalanced, would make you literally scratch the head. I'd be looking at a cheapest 5820k I could find (even used) and a budget SLI board (Asus-A/PRO comes to mind) for 2 high end Titan X's and that would apply to 390X's too, at the least.

5820k at the least? You will hardly notice a difference in games, if at all.

As for the PCI-E gens, with current GPU's there won't be a difference in games between 2.0 and 3.0, unless you use some GPU compute app that can take advantage of the extra bandwidth.

If he has the budget to build a new system and go SLI Titans then that would be the obvious choice, but if he can only do SLI Titans and the 2500k or upgrade his whole build and get one Titan, then the 2500k build would destroy the latter.
