I wanted to start a thread that compared these two, specifically from individuals who have upgraded/sidegraded to the Titan, or have spent time with both options.

What do you feel like is a better gaming experience? Some people have reported that, although their frames are lower, the Titan runs "smoother".

Some benchmarks are showing Titans riding the heels of dual 670's but not really catching them.

For reference, I am on SLI GTX 670s and really enjoy them.. I haven't really had any complaints. The Titan offers a Single-Card solution that is certainly a good option, but I am not sure if paying more for a "downgrade" is going to be worth it.

So.. weigh in! Tell me what you think

I wouldn't go with the Titan cards if you're already using SLI 670's. Yes you'll be able to SLI the Titans in the future in you'd like, but why not wait to see what the 7xx series cards offer? I'm sure that you'll see performance comparable to that of the Titan series at a lower cost.

I am very interesting to hear some comments on this as well.
More so with actual experience then charts...

Yup..mostly interested in some great opinion paragraphs that give me more insight than all the raw benchmarking data could ever provide..

Well I was just saying charts don't always tell the whole story.
In some cases (my 570 and 6970 for one example) my Radeon benchmarked a little quicker but the GTX felt smoother and stronger, in my experience.

On charts, dual GPU setups look great but they don't tell you about some issues that come with a multi-GPU setup.
I've only had a couple dual GPU setups, some rather potent but IMO there is nothing as smooth as a single GPU and thats what makes this Titan so superior to say a 7990, 5970 or 690.

Although I think as time passes and drivers improve, frame latency and micro-stutter issues start to go away.

SLI 670's and SLI 680's are superior to the titan. Crysis 3 has major issues running multiple cards in any form. Patches will correct this and even SLI 660 TI cards will be faster in this game.

The Titan is significantly overpriced. The only reason to purchase would be for users planning on SLI for pushing 3 screens. I have never been a fan of 3 or more card setups except for benching.

If you already have 670 or 680 sli youre perfectly fine. Titans are nice but theyre overpriced and get spanked by gk104 in sli

I would also add that the Titan would be advantageous for a high-powered mini-ITX build where you only have room for one card.

I think it's also worth it for low power, single card solutions. Those who are comparing the two of these (as opposed to myself who already has the SLI setup) have some significant advantages going single card.
