The 8800GTX was a truly exceptional card though. You didn't see the Titan performing anywhere close to twice as fast as the GTX 680 (even though the 680 was a glorified mid-ranger). Look at the 8800GTX vs the 7900GTX. In graphically sophisticated games like F.E.A.R it was literally twice as fast
The 8800GTX was worth every cent.
And another thing about the 8800GTX; 8800GTX owners had a year to revel in that glorious card before the 8800GT came along, Nvidia showed it's contempt for Titan owners by over-hyping the Titan and then releasing the 780 in just three months. They even put the Titan cooler on the 780, and denied Titan owners that bit of exclusivity. It was basically a giant middle finger to everyone who purchased that card, and that's precisely the reason why I can't fathom why anyone would be buying subsequent Titan cards.Edited by Oubadah - 7/31/16 at 4:50am
