    So you can buy a factory overclocked EVGA version, with their awesome customer service/warranty etc, for less than a non OC'd Asus, Gigabyte or MSI... wierd.

    Although you can achieve the same clocks with any other Titan as they are all reference, but EVGA have done it for you, and charge less...

    Bingo !!!

    :D

    What do you guys reckon with brands of reference cards? I was looking at EVGA due to their cooler policy but the few EVGA cards I have owned have all been crap overclockers, major let down, so do you think Asus or MSI might have a better chance of clocking among the better examples?

    Wow $1179.00 for a factory overclocked card with a decent warranty, that's waaaaay better than expected! Even $1249-$1279 isn't too bad considering, but for $1179 for the EVGA I would see no point ordering overseas :thumbup:

    That evga pricing is crazy, I wonder why it's so cheap... comparatively speaking :p

    Definitely makes overseas ordering pointless!

    That's a great start if the prices stay at that level and just drop - instead of go up :-\

    Edit:
    I'll jump on those evga cards if they stay the cheapest. Then again, I promised to myself not to buy any for the next ~6 months :(

    Reviews aside, is there any reason to choose one of these over a 690?

    If a 690 doesn't fit in your case...

    So what did everyone do, order one EVGA and one from another brand?

    tenfold - vram is capable of supporting large surround res, and if you play games with poor SLI performance/dislike SLI Titan is the fastest single GPU out so it'd give you the best performance if a 680 won't quite cut it.

    We really need more powerful CPUs..... there is no CPU out there that can keep up with 3 or 4 titans.... even at big overclocks like 5ghz they just aren't fast enough to not be a bottleneck...

    Need 7ghz 24/7 overclock :tongue:

    so much grunt yet no games use it.. only benchmarks will utilize this thing.. BF3 will still get its typical FPS dips. Hows this go vs a 690?

    which is why the titan is a purely benchmarking card :)

    What res are you guys playing at? There's games now that slow overclocked SLI 680's to sub 50 FPS....which means a single Titan would be slower again. It's all about the res and the settings.
