I have been looking into building an new "future proof" rig :/ I am fine with everything apart from my choice in GPU, I had a gtx 550 ti last year, gtx 660 ti from November 2012 until present.
My idea for the new build was to buy a gtx 680 after a year or 2 buy another gtx 680 (or two and sli) The more I look into it, it seems like a waste of money, the only way in my eyes to keep up with the rapid performance increase in graphics cards its to be buying a new card every year or 2 at most. Please let me hear your opinions and hopefully prove me wrong.

I've been through this before. From what I've learned, the best option is to get a single flagship card, and then get the next one the following year if required. Although the Titan may change things. Because they're already saying that the replacement for the 680 won't be better than the Titan. Getting a Titan might actually future-proof you until 800 series comes out.

This is just for gaming on 1080p or less though. Hope this helps!

Thanks for your input, I was somewhat thinking the same myself although from what I have seen the GTX 690 is outperforming the titan in many areas unless the titan is overclocked. Also the titan would bring my build above the 2,500 euro mark which would be somewhat out of my budget.
