    Default Need advice about a Nvidia order

    Hi guys

    So, i`ve bought the 2 GTX 680 with 4gb ecah to use at 2560x1440

    But the store that i bought just received the GTX Titan oday at the same price that i've payed for my 680 SLI

    What should i do? Stay with the 680 SLI 4gb or ask the store to send me the Titan instead?

    Thanks

    Two 680s will be faster than Titan. However, it will use more power, but thats to be expected with two GPUs.

    Then the dual 680s would be my choice.

    I agree but the sheep are snatching them up and stores are selling out. Makes no sense to me at all. If anything follow Stans and get the 690. Hell Id get a Devil 13 or the Ares II before I get a Titan.
