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


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.


Fantastic reading comprehension.


I was agreeing and saying its bad to buy any card right now

Snuckie = failure

"those who bought the Titan as it released"

It seems like you love bringing this line up every time somebody mentions how overpriced the Titan was (and still is).

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.

Titans already lost the world 3DMark record. Wait until people get their waterblocks for the reference cards, or until the non reference models come out.

Honestly, despite the obviously worse performance, I'd rather just go with the titan. I just much prefer one card VS. two since I've had many headaches in the past dealing with 2 cards. I cringe even thinking about the months I spent NOT playing games just trying to get my bloody 6950's in CF to work properly.

Or I'd just get the two 290x's and use one while selling the other ;p

Snuckie and Xeeh are fighting again? They seemed to get along so well when Xeeh was thinking of switching over to AMD.

They lost in quad setups, we all know the Titan is an utter pos in quad setups

Basically it was 4 290x vs 3 Titans

I'd buy 1000 dollars worth of potatoes and roll with them down a water slide.

I'd buy $1,000 worth of potatoes and try to hit interfusor with them as he rode down a water slide.
