That's because the 680 is a fine card that is perfectly competitive with AMD's high-end, not sure why nV should sell it for less just to appease a few people that think otherwise.

So yeah as I said elsewhere, the 7970 cost £550 at launch too, and you're right, even though that has tanked in price you can pick up a couple of Ti Boosts for less money which would outperform it.

Nice to have options isn't it.
I seem to recall the 7970 costing around £440-480 at launch. I know I paid £412 for mine (not the one I have now).

http://hexus.net/tech/news/graphics/33453-amd-radeon-hd-7970-launch-day-pricing-availability/

A few are above £500 there but quite frankly anyone paying £500+ for a reference 7970 at launch was mugged.

Card throttles at above 70 degrees. Mines would drop clocks to 900 ish after some gaming. Need more noise to keep fans effective. Under water my card runs 1100+ constant with fans on very low.



I'm not really arguing but the point is still, despite how much you pay for the Titan, it's still the fastest single gpu in the world. And then again, as A couple of guys have said, if you use it for DP compute, there is no competition from 780.

Titan is priced this high because it has to be. It's an entry level compute card on one hand and a gaming superstar on the other. The GTX 780 is a gaming superstar alone. Ironically, the 7970 is also a compute superstar but now a lesser gaming card in comparison.

And one last time, like I've said months before, if you have the money and you want the product, buy it - it's why we have a free market.

Is it too expensive? (GTX Titan) - yes. Can I afford it - yes. Was i sick of crossfire glitches - yes. Did I want single gpu performance as high as possible? - yes - Buy Titan.

Now of course, you'd buy GTX 780. Titan as a gaming product is now irrelevant. GTX 780 is the obvious choice.
This, is why i sold my 7950's for a 780. My time with dual cards is over, and I just want the best I can get in my price range, which is the 780.

Awesome card! Your turn AMD. We need lower prices :D
Given the situation AMD is in right now, there is a good chance that they will just join the price hike if their card performs better. :eek:

No points dropped for the high price? Red team this red team that? i find this review somewhat biased.
That cookie from the 680 review is taking effect? :laugh::p:laugh: :rolleyes::rolleyes:

And one last time, like I've said months before, if you have the money and you want the product, buy it - it's why we have a free market.

Is it too expensive? (GTX Titan) - yes. Can I afford it - yes. Was i sick of crossfire glitches - yes. Did I want single gpu performance as high as possible? - yes - Buy Titan.
Free market exists to exploit consumers. Business 101. :pimp:

Using your analogy:

Is it too expensive? (GTX Titan) - Yes. Can I afford it - Yes. I could afford multiples if i wanted. Was i sick of crossfire glitches - Don't need CF/SLi, don't care. SLi has it's own issues, don't play it off as an ATi/AMD only problem. Did (Do - In my case) I want single gpu performance as high as possible? - Yes

I like to achieve this without being double fisted in the process. Enter the 7950 :laugh:

The build quality on the Prodigy is too poor for me to keep it any longer. I can throw the card into the APU setup in my Node if anyone is interested in what it looks like shoehorned into a true SFF mITX case.
Aside from the shitty paint and "questionable" feet/handles, how exactly is the build quality "poor"?

I have no issues with the feet/handles on my case other than they have maybe too much flex, and that flex makes it a bit wobbly is all :eek:

If happiness could be a graphics card, GK110 would be it :toast:
:roll::roll: :laugh::laugh: :roll::roll: :laugh::laugh: :roll::roll:

If you need a GFX card to make you happy, you better reevaluate your life. Or lack thereof :slap:

First, the paint and handles are pretty significant aspects of the case, so much so that the failure in either of those regards alone make the case poor enough to pass on. However we can add awful front panel audio jacks and rattling side panels to the build issues the case has. On top of that, there are a couple design faux pas. Prime example- the solid front panel on the Arctic version that pretty much makes the front fan useless. Someone should have addressed that before the case was released.

Describing the case as 'a bit wobbly' is a severe understatement. Just plugging in or removing a USB thumb drive makes the case sway like it just got hit with a 6.0 quake.

From a far the case is nice and has a unique character, sure. But while some people can look past its deficiencies, I have grown tired of dealing with them (especially when there are much more competent mITX case choices available).

my 780 will be here Tuesday. Can't wait.
I can relate to your wait, I'm always like that when waiting for a shipment :laugh:

That was fast- guess I have to start building :D

Post some benchmarks when you can!

If you need a GFX card to make you happy, you better reevaluate your life. Or lack thereof
I do not need a GFX, I want it, no one said I NEED it.

I don't need many things but I want them anyway. (Taken from Dave :laugh: :toast:)

Many things make me happy, being able to purchase what I want makes me happy, my job makes me happy... I could go on and on.

Also one thing I know is I don't need you to tell me what to do with my life, this isn't the place and it is not your call.

Last time I checked this was a GTX 780 review thread.

Here a question: Would it be a GTX 780 or GTX 670's in SLI if they're $325 each?
Pro's/Con's...
A question for you.

Can a single GTX 780 provide enough framerate for what you'll be doing or you absolutely need the raw power of GTX 670 SLI to get playable framerates?

If you can manage good framerates with the GTX 780 then single GPU is better.

For me SLI has to be used when one single, powerful gpu, isn't enough.

While we can get the job done with one strong GPU why bother with SLI/CFX profiles?

The less variables the more enjoyable will be your experience.

Here a question: Would it be a GTX 780 or GTX 670's in SLI if they're $325 each?
Pro's/Con's...
670's hands down although the EVGA 780 made me think for a while. I've had my 2 670's since October and couldn't be happier. Probably would have them a year longer maybe more. Firts off two 670's scale higher than one 780. The drivers are somewhat mature so you don't get that many hidden huccups and this cards overclock really well. 780, new drivers the bad hasn't even begun, it has some new software but implementation is another thing entirely, the metal unibody looks really well made and stylish (although performance doesn't need style), really powerful when compared to a single card from previous generation (green and red) and dual cards don't count since engineers have got to be sleeping on the job with the plethora of mistakes they make with those. If you could wait a little maybe one 780 down the line when it doesn't cost $650. Sorry it's not a question of quality its a question of economics. Even if I had the money I would wait for the right price because lets be honest, even though it a really advanced piece of technology, its just an overpirced toy just like Ferrari's, Bentleys, Lamborghini's etc...

It's good we can both laugh at that.
Have to agree there I haven't avoided any video card as much as those 7950's. In doesn't help that I got an Asus 7970 DCII for $318.00 (its open box but I did a warranty check and it still has warrant until 2015 so I'm golden). Yup these are not bad cards, they are just no very good and prone to be surpassed by supposedly "inferior" cards so yeah:laugh:

How is 20% more performance over a 7970 worth a £200 - 50% price mark up, fools and there money I guess. And yes I'm well aware that some people have the notion of they can easily afford it so it doesn't matter, that's a personal opinion, the fact the cards are priced as they are is what's questionable. Still, might buy one in 2 years time :rolleyes:

Given the situation AMD is in right now, there is a good chance that they will just join the price hike if their card performs better. :eek:
I have my hopes up. Good guy AMD never disappoint :D

First, the paint and handles are pretty significant aspects of the case, so much so that the failure in either of those regards alone make the case poor enough to pass on. However we can add awful front panel audio jacks and rattling side panels to the build issues the case has. On top of that, there are a couple design faux pas. Prime example- the solid front panel on the Arctic version that pretty much makes the front fan useless. Someone should have addressed that before the case was released.

Describing the case as 'a bit wobbly' is a severe understatement. Just plugging in or removing a USB thumb drive makes the case sway like it just got hit with a 6.0 quake.

From a far the case is nice and has a unique character, sure. But while some people can look past its deficiencies, I have grown tired of dealing with them (especially when there are much more competent mITX case choices available).
I see you have mastered the art of FUD. Take all the pot shots you want! :laugh:

The paint is only iffy where things attach to it, the rest of the paint is fine. Didn't you get the case after myself? Pretty sure i mentioned these things. I don't use the FP jacks so can't comment there, but i have no issues when using the USBs. My case itself is solid, maybe yours was dropped and is slightly warped causing it to "rattle"? The front panel on the Arctic white isn't completely solid. It has vents. On the side of the bezel. You are over exaggerating the "wobbliness". Mine is under my desk by my feet, have knocked it quite a bit and it just does a lil' dance LoL. Tonnes of reviews & vids to show the case :pimp:

For $80 it's hard to beat the Prodigy for an iTX build IMO

I do not need a GFX, I want it, no one said I NEED it.

Many things make me happy, being able to purchase what I want makes me happy, my job makes me happy... I could go on and on.

Also one thing I know is I don't need you to tell me what to do with my life, this isn't the place and it is not your call.

:toast:
How else is someone supposed to interpret what you posted? English wasn't my first language either, but...

Good for you! :toast:

I'm not telling you what to do, i'm just joining in the conversation. You mad? :roll:

Let's remain civil in this thread and not insult others. Only warning.
Did i miss something? Who's being uncivil/insulting? I only see a conversation of differing opinions. :toast:

It's good we can both laugh at that.
Want to laugh even more? 7870 Xt.

The panel is solid enough to where mounting a fan in the front is absolutely pointless. The vents you mention do nothing to let the fan mount bring in air.

I don't know how you can say your case does a dance when you bump it then claim I must be over exaggerating the stability issue of the case. My 350D and Node 304 don't have any movement whether I am plugging in @ the USB or if I accidentally bump the case. As physically wide as the Prodigy is, it's just poor engineering that resulted it in being a dancing unstable case.

Who cares though, right? If you're happy then what's it matter if I don't like the case? It doesn't. What I mention may not affect you, but other potential owners may find the information useful in making their final decision.
