What the title says. Two GTX 680's 4GB edition from EVGA or 1 Titan from EVGA? Not sure if the titan is worth it for like 1grand which is like what 10% performance increase for 500$?

This. We also need to know much more.

For me, I had the same question. But I choose a Titan because the only games I plan on playing across this year. None have official dates on SLi abillity yet. And I play at 5760x1080. So I needed that single biggest card for me because a single 680 I had at the time, couldn't keep up at 5760x1080.

Sick build!!!!

I was in the same position as you a couple of weeks ago. I went the 2 gtx 680 4GB route. Just finished doing my build so haven't done any benching yet. I think you'll do good with either configurations. Just depends on personal choice I guess.

I would get the Titan as far as single card setup goes. It'll handle pretty much anything you throw at it with the monitor you're getting.

How long will you keep the GPU (s)? Do you use mods in your games? If you're staying @1080P, will be switching cards soon, & don't use mods.. I would get two 680's

Titan is a BEAST @1080P though

If you're moving up in resolution, want smooth game play, & don't plan on switching for awhile... Get a Titan

Both will play @ ultra high level, Titan will give you good FPS...

Titan FPS will be better on the low end & 680's on the high end. Titans will be smoother overall, but you probably couldn't tell. I know I can't. I just tried mine a few weeks ago. I tested one 670 vs. one 7970 vs one Titan. Of course Titan was better, but with moderate settings I couldn't tell the difference. 7970 Crossfire Vs titan SLI was a tad bit different.

You choose what your gut tells you, cause they all will ball out play the hell out some games. @ 1080P I would get the 680's & would try for 4GB models....

I was just going through that same decision. I decided on a Titan. The other options are faster, but Titan equals less headaches and less heat. And it should offer more consistent game play.
