If you can afford to spend $1000 or more on a GPU the ASUS ROG MARS GTX 760 is an interesting choice.  The two GTX 760 cores on this card are not modified as we have seen on some other two GPU cards, indeed ASUS even overclocked them to a base of 1006MHz and a boost clock of 1072MHz.  Ryan reviewed this card back in December, awarding it with a Gold and [H]ard|OCP is revisiting this card with a new driver and a different lineup of games.  They also pass this unique card from ASUS a Gold after it finished stomping on AMD and the GTX 780Ti.

Where are you getting the price information? Amazon has the card for $850, and Super Biz has it for $650.

Edit: You even linked to the card on Amazon, yet still said it was $1,000. I am confused Jeremy Hellstrom. I am confused.

around 650€ in france, should be close to 900$
although why a gtx760 it's stupid the card will have lower perf than 780TI or 290X, consumption alot higher and add to it the crap that comes with SLI, they should have made 770 or 780 mars, at least they will have better perf than top single gpu, or wait a bit and do mars 750TI so at least they would have lowest consumption.
now you have a very cool looking card, but very useless too

The MSRP of the card is actually $630, it's still a premium over SLI 760s but you get the added benefit of this only needing one slot.

Geez, why be splitting hairs. At 850 it is damn close to being 1k, either way it is way over priced like the second reply mentioned. If that is confusing you should take some economics classes.

15% difference is not "close" and that's only for the Amazon card, other places have it much cheaper. SuperBiz has it for $640, for example.
