    stick starwars name on to it and charge more? make it look like light saber doesnt make it any more appealing to it going in to case what does it mater what it looks like? the prices of titan cards alone deal breaking for me. but i sure they will sell like hot cakes XD

    This will give you more frames in Battlefront 2 over "regular" Titan Xp. Also, if you get the Jedi one your KDR with the Rebels will be higher. So just to make sure you are on top of your game with the Empire as well, get both a Jedi and an Empire edition in SLI. Common sense man, really... :eek:

    You know theres ALOT of star-wars geeks out there, I would not mind having either of those but Titan price of a $1000 dollars plus the star-wars premium I would guess maybe $1,200 possibly? They both look hella-nice!

    It must have been a hard decision to make one of these cards with red lighting, oh wait... red is the bad guys.

    They do look pretty cool.

    Didn't Nvidia emailed Jay2Cents about the Titan line not being for gaming? And now this? Oh lordy!

    I have to be honest, I'd own those in a heartbeat, but sadly, I could never justify spending that much cash on a single GPU. Especially with how fast tech gets outdated in the modern world. Then again I came into the PC building / PC gaming community when Nvidia & ATI/AMD would release their flagship product along with its lower end GPUS and that was that. I.e, 6800 Ultra came out in mid 2004, was Nvidia's top tier, most desirable GPU on the market, and was $500-$550 give or take current market value & what version of the card you go(including the 6800 Ultra Extreme). Hec with the 7000 Series Nvidia card, at least did something special and made the 7950 GX2 Dual GPU beast card, and even then, was just a $650 Card. I think what I am saying and what I’ve felt like for sometime, is the term “Flagship” really means nothing in the PC hardware realm anymore. How many iterations of the Titan are we up to now? It’s laughable! Oh wait, here is one more for the list! Star-Wars Collector’s Edition!!! while cool & all, it’s a totally easy cash grab from the Green Team. They can sell it for however much they want, and they know people will buy. $1000+ on a SINGLE GPU that will be replaced by the next best thing from the same company in less than 6 Months time? Seriously people have way too much money to burn its sickening.

    They try selling a "product" not hardware actually.
    I love to see (mby one day) GPU without any cooler. Nice to dream :p
    But right now we have apperance marketing wars. I think soon they will start be proud from their boxes too.
    If they not already are :D

    I'm seeing a Maxwell 900 series cooler strapped onto a Pascal Titan with some LED's on it. $1200 for that? No thanks.
