Why would you even buy a Titan?

From the looks of it, for the cost of one Titan you can build a full PC that could run games at at least 60 fps.
And by time a Titan's capabilitys will be needed to run games, there'll be better and cheaper alternatives out.

Some people want to supersample already hard-to-run games, etc.

There exist benefits they want.

I wouldn't. I'm perfectly happy with my 5 year old mid-range budget card that can run everything on medium settings at 30-40 FPS, and still look better than most console versions.

If I had an unlimited budget... I probably still wouldn't bother getting one. Its like flying first class - it costs 6-8 times the regular price, but you still end up in the same place.

You would buy one if you're an enthusiast because it is a limited-run enthusiast card. It was never a good value for the money. Much like $1000 Intel Extreme Edition CPUs.

Well, when it was announced it seemed cool because they marketed it as if it would truly be a limited run, we didn't know about the 780 coming out in a few months and it was basically an SLI setup with only a single card and 6GB of VRAM.

With 3 1080P monitors at a resolution of 5760x1080, it takes tri-SLI Titans to maintain 60 FPS in certain games with the settings absolutely maxed.

Multi-monitor gaming is the best legitimate reason.

If I didn't care about $1000, I would most certainly buy one.
