PC gaming is cheap, why does everyone want it so expensive, if that's the case why do people enjoy Steam sales?

I'm confused, do some of you want PC hobby that costs hundreds of thousands? Would it make you feel better?
And heck no, being an enthusiast back then meant you would go to walmart buy a PNY cyrix x86 cpu and oc it with jumpers manually hahahaha thumb.giftongue.gif

Most Titan owners and enthusiasts who make crazy builds (like that crazy pink unicorn man above) know how expensive it is. But they're like "Yeah, it's a bit of a rip-off, but i can afford it and enjoy it". Others though, well.. "what do you mean it's poor value, don't tell me what i can or can't buy!"..

Oh man those jumpers, THOSE DAMN JUMPERS (especially on HDDs back then). Better make sure you read the manual or you'll end up frying all your data.

And better have some handy tweezers around coz you don't want to lose those tiny buggers.

It has nothing to do with me wanting one/being able to afford one, or criticizing anyone who buys one..

Straw-man arguments and ad hominems a plenty in here..

You SLI owners kill me sometimes. You act as if it works perfectly for all applications. It doesn't.

For example - it doesn't work at all in VR right now. At. All. I have 25 games in my library, and it doesn't work with a single ONE of them. Yet it's the better option? Please!

I have owned 5-6 multi-GPU setups over the years going all the way back to the 7950GX2, then 8800GTX SLI, then 5870 Crossfire, 5970 Quadfire, 570 Tri-SLI, etc. I will not go multi-GPU again until it receives proper support -- particularly in VR.

Plenty of people in here (myself included) have gave valid reasons as to why they don't prefer 1080 SLI. Don't really know what you're looking for, here.

Taking jabs at people who can't afford it is a really poor defense of your position, it's fine if you like it and are willing to pay that much but taking the attitude of "stupid poor people" reflects badly on you. Not to say the opposite doesn't count for if you can't afford one, just because you can't doesn't mean someone who can shouldn't, if they want to that's fine and thinking "stupid rich people" is just as bad. That said I don't think anyone can deny a negative tend of higher prices for less than we use to get performance wise comparatively.

Edit :i hate auto correct, I want my computer back T.T
My comment wasn't directed towards everyone. Point is, this thread is about Titan XP benchmarks and not the price. Get over it people. This card is not for you!

Yes guys.. But you're still misunderstanding me/I didn't make my reasoning clear enough.

That's assuming they're equal, 1080's in SLI will cope with most titles (even the very heavy ones) at 4K/60, a single Titan won't. It's even struggling in this small selection of titles with settings and AA turned down/off.

If the Titan XP could get close to a pair of 1080's I'd completely agree with you, but it can't. No matter what, whichever route someone takes they will have to make compromises right now. A card being comfortable at 4k/60 isn't here yet, and I'm not talking about the TXP barely averaging 60.

The whole argument was about the Titan XP being good value because it's an uncomprimized setup for 4K, i simply disagree.

I also don't have an SLI/CF setup. tongue.gif

If this was reddit I'd be inclined to agree. But THIS. IS. OCN!!!.

Heres the definition since you are having a hard time understanding.



"Enthusiast" has been used by companies the last couple gens so you can feel superior by spending more. You dont have X gpu so therefor you are not an enthusiast. Looks like their marketing is working on some people.

I was talking in general, not towards him.

I know the definition, and I am saying someone who is an enthusiast tends to spend lots of money on things they enjoy. The biggest enthusiast tend to buy the best hardware, because they enjoy the hobby so much they save money for it. Like you said, many companies now use the term for high end products so the definition of the word has been a bit fuzzy lately.

I don't believe that most of the people complaining can't afford this. Put aside $50/m, by the time the next flagship rolls around you basically have the money after reselling your old card. I also don't believe that most people here can't afford to save, because OCN members tend to have pretty high end computers to begin with.

My point is that a true enthusiasts generally finds a way to get the best hardware, either by saving or by getting a better paying job to support their hobby. I've always associated the term with the people who are the most dedicated. So let's just agree to disagree on what the word "enthusiast" means when it comes to PCs.

To be fair, most people are running at 720p/900p/1080p/1440p at most. There are plenty of cards around that cater to those resolutions for $150-$300.
