    Not sure, price difference between those two is pretty big, but for just straight up performance ill take the Titan. It won't provide as much frames, but actual gameplay will be smoother due to the absence of frame latency issues like dual configurations have, more specifically crossfire right now.

    Why a Titan over a 780? They are practically the same thing when overclocked aside from a $350 price difference. Also, Crossfire has some issues where every frame rendered by your second GPU is a runt, a.k.a. you never actually see it even though your frame rate supposedly reports a higher FPS in some games.

    Yea, that was my point, games don't go high enough to notice any "frame latency". You would never see this, so it is a mute point. Moreover, the problem is mainly when not pairing together the same graphics card. Like you mentioned for example, a powerful card and a weak card together in crossfire. Which is irrelevant here because we're talking about two of the same card.

    Agreed in this case for price and performance scenarios 780 is better for comparison. It cost about as much a 7950 crossfire.

    No no no, it is VERY noticeable in some respects. Like I said, go educate yourself on the issue.

    My 7950 is $465 (each) currently. Because it's a higher powered one than the cheap ones.

    Well actually I wanted to know which was more powerful. Not which you would choose.

    No, your 7950s are the normal reference cards, quit BS'ing yourself.

    No. That Amazon price is old. All 7950's are now sold with higher core clocks and around $275.

    Please, it's not hard using an internet search provider of your choice. The whole basis of this thread is to determine what is better over the other. Do you think the many people from various websites who do reviews make the results up?

    When someone actually came in and gave you some information not normally found in these reviews, you shoot it right down.

    There's no need for threads such as this.
