    Amazing card, looking forward to seeing what other custom 780's can do.

    $350/card price premium for maybe 60 days at the most of bragging rights is a hefty price to pay. All I can say is that I'm glad I'm not one of them. The worst part is that the proud owners went to the trouble of creating some really nice threads here at TPC and order backplates and waterblocks and all kinds of foofy stuff for their shiny new toys. Now all the naysayers that enjoy the "I told you so" have a nice big target to aim at.

    I don't. Anyone who bought the Titan with any thought that they were getting a decent value has way more money than sense.

    I might pick up a couple of these 780s once BTC mining is no longer worth it on my 7970s and once the price is down to ~$500 where it belongs. $650 is not worth it for the performance IMO, and I don't feel like supporting this stupid trend of jacking up GPU prices with my money.

    7970 costs £550 at launch here too, frankly you should be thanking nVidia for forcing them to drop that price. :p

    Not impressed with those noise and temp levels.

    Please review the Inno3d 780 Ice Dragon.

    Great card ... but bad pricing ... They are not trying to lower the prices of the 6xx series cards ... they're just introducing the next gen cards with higher pricing because AMD hasn't come out with there next gen ...

    Are any of these reviews/companies going to give Wiz the backplate he desires so badly?!

    That was good :D really good.
    I'd like to see more backplates as well. Even on mainstream and casual class cards. Ain't that expensive to make them after all. It's a piece of extruded or whatever metal. Its not a rocket science.

    even a 10 cents piece of plastic would help

    I am sure most Titan owners knew this would happen.
