i think titan is overpriced 

sli msi 660ti is strong enough 

i saw sli 660ti beats titan 

not sure if it was real thing or not 

Thanks man :)

just get a 680. titan is serious overkill.

for that kind of budget go for a Socket 2011 3930K  GTX680.

that amough of money you dont gonne invest in a dead socket...

just 2 of my cents...

Grtz Angel ☺

Don't go SLI from the get go... maybe allow for it in the future (probably won't be practical then...) but SLI can throw out some issues with games and such... In a few cases sli or crossfire will perform worse then just 1 of the original card.  (As time goes on I'd expect that games will be better and faster at working with SLI and Crossfire but it isn't worth the investment right now)

I think the best thing you could do for yourself is grab a EVGA 680FTW edition.

there are problems with the server for combo deals but that will be fixed shortly and the links will work then

if you can't see the combo deals yet what it ammounts to is 4x8GB (32GB) 2400Mhz ram in qaud channel, a overclockable 6 core i7, with a kraken x60 cooling it, which out performs the H100i, a 4GB 680, 1TB HDD, 750w PSU, and a cosair case


Y U NO SSD?????


thanks every 1 i made my decision ...

ill wait for gtx 780 T_T 

well that might be for the best, prices for everything else might come down and you'll have near the performance of a titan
