The reference models will have no problem overclocking under water. The reference PCB is supposed to be built like a tank.

If you are talking about right now, you'd have to be the blindest of blind fanboys to choose the titan.

I'd take the $1000 and go to Vegas baby! YEAHH!!! (not really, but it beats having to buy something you don't want, and I don't want either choice)

Neither actually, I rather have a single R9 290X or 780

just got an rma kit for my 280x, and since it started to whine badly, ( probably the coils), the 290x is a sure winner for $270 more. Thats with tax being factored in.

nah, now now but those who bought the Titan as it released will have a card that's relevant a lot longer than buying a 290X now, first part of next year it's going to get dusted by the 800 series, bad time to buy any card.

Why buy a 290x or 290? The reference models are POS, show me one that hits 13000 in Firestrike.

That's a 33% OC required from their stock benches of 9400-9500 avg across various reviews. Wait until non reference comes out and until Nvidia releases the 780TI along with price drops, those who buy these are going to regret it.
