I have made the determination that I will wait on the 780 gtx rather than pay though the nose for SLI Titan. I think the Titan is a great card, but I do not wish to help raise the financial cost of future gaming cards by overpaying for the Titan and further encouraging Nvidia and Amd to rip us, the little guys, off!! I am also reluctant to spend 2k for SLI Titan only to see Maxwell in about a year arrive and render Titan (and my 2k investment) middle of the road at best. However I badly wish to upgrade now and in the very near short term until I acquire SLI Maxwell next year. I still feel that there may be a chance of the 780 gtx with a 15-30% improvement over the 680 gtx arriving in the March-May time frame for the following reasons. Orginally, all the rumors were that the 780 gtx would arrive in the March-May time frame and it still may if rumors of a new Radeon 7990 which is more powerful than the Aus Ares are true. Some sources say the new 7990s launch is near at hand. A launch of a 7990 which could challenge or defeat the Titan might prompt Nvidia to keep to its original timeline for the launch of the 780 gtx. Additionally, how long would Nividia elect to wait before launching the 780gtx if Maxwell is only a year out.?? If the 780gtx is launched in the next 60 days, I would SLI it for my system and replace it next year with Maxwell. Such a short upgrade cycle would be expensive but tolerable and not nearly as painful as seeing twin Titans drop in value from 2k to maybe 800-900 dollars in a year. Does anyone else have any insight, information, or specualtion as to when the 780 gtx is likely to surface??? A final word which is a disclaimer, should I learn the 780 gtx isnt going to be launched until much later, I would likely acquire twin Titans anyway and await Maxwell. I can afford the Titans, its just I dont like to help Nvidia and Amd to rip us off and fell that a single GPU card should never cost much more than 600 dollars. Top end GPU cards should be readily obtainable for all gamers and not just for the more well heeled gamers as they are after all, gaming cards and not CRAY supercomputers! Ok, I am through venting now, thanks and I welcome any input or insight the board may have on this matter.
