Yeah well $1640 is a lot better then $1899 for sure. Could over clock my card to 1500 but don't see the point. 1455 is easy to get to and gives good performance and 100% stable at 1.23v. Never goes over 45 degrees C. I think a single overclocked 980ti is good enough for the moment

I have a titan x which is essential the same thing and it does good enough. Might not hold 100fps in BF4 all the time but it's pretty close. I got a 1455mhz overclock. Wouldn't bother with SLI as it increases input lag. I'm just going to buy Pascal when it comes out instead.

1455MHZ? What kind of settings do you have?Different Bios? Benchmarking or gaming with no issues? Mine at 1296 is pretty much maxed out.. It is water cooled with a close-loop.

As someone who hates bezels, these wide screen displays are the best option available. 3 screens takes up way too much space and the bezels are enough to drive a guy like me crazy.

Agree, the TI does a very decent job paired with the x34. Though, to make the most use of that 100hz overclock on the x34, you really gotta lower the settings. But I'm like you.. Will only roll single card from now on, so waiting to see what Pascal can do.

My TI is still on air until I can buy a waterblock for it, but mine boosts to 1450 easy with a couple hundred MHz overclock on the core. Mine is a zotac with stock cooler. No extra voltage adjustment of anything.

What do you use to oc it?

For me yes Maxed ALL ultra settings. The only setting that I do not run Ultra is Shadow of Mordor textures which I run on High because a team proved their 4k texture pack is the same pack used in the High settings that just have poor optimizations which in turn eats up all your video ram.

If you don't have a problem turning down some of your settings then yes your single card will work just fine and even if you don't it will work but you just wont get those high frame rates.

Btw SLI input lag is minimal and unless you are an esports competitive gamer your not going to notice it and if you do then why would be gaming on an x34 anyways? :/ you would want to be on a TN panel @1080p

We are indeed lucky at least that is how I feel about it sorry if my wording doesn't appeal to you.

I don't think the sample size is big enough to make any kind of judgement regarding lemon to gem ratios yet. There are plenty of happy users not posting in an issue thread.

I'm very happy with my x34 but you can not deny there is a large amount of x34's that are faulty for various reasons. Simply saying that for those of us that got a good functional monitor as a lottery win is a subjective statement (a bit of a joke) that you obviously disagree with which is totally fine. Neither you or I have any real numbers to validate the amount of good working x34's versus the defective ones. Try to lighten up man its not the end of the world all I really was trying to convey is if you happen to get a good working x34 be happy and grateful. I know I am after reading that forum.
