Not getting a Titan, not in a million Worlds.

nVidia has fucking lost their mind. They're charging a completely insane whole grand for a card that's worth 600-700 tops, just because it's the fastest GPU and has a pointless magnesium shroud on it. They're Nickelbacking these things till the skin of the horse dries... sigh.

I mean, I can afford one, but I won't. About to go with a pair of custom 680's.

I have that very same XFX 8800 GTX in it's original box somewhere, it served me well. Just for fun I am going to put together some older parts to make a 8800 GTX SLI rig and see how it runs Cryis 3. :)

8800 GTX SLi is about as fast as a 285. I ran Cry 2 on a 285 and it ran well. At 1600x1200 on all med with x2 AA over 100 FPS, Cry 3 is easily more intensive, though, since it's DX11 only, those cards won't run it...

Curse me for a noob, I forgot about the DX11 limitation.
