    I'm getting ready to upgrade my video card and monitor. I'm pretty sold on nvidia, my current setup is a pair of gtx 680s in sli on a 1080p 24". So here's my question: the difference in prove between a single 980 and a titan x is about $440. Is the titan x's performance increase worth it? I will be able to afford it, but I'm kind of looking for opinions. Thanks!

    This review will answer your question about Titan X easier than I can.

    In my opinion $1000 will never be in my range of willingness to spend on a graphics solution. Therefor opinions on "is Titan X worth it" are just that opinions. Because judging by my opinion they are not. And if you read comments of others, you might draw the conclusion a Titan X is more of a compute card than a gaming card.

    Having read the article (hat tip to clifford_cooley), it contained about what I expected. I've been asking around at linustechtips.com as well, and got the same specs from their review on YouTube/vessel. So the titan x would basically be for "I can afford this" bragging rights. If I were in the position to jump into liquid cooling, I'd go for a r9 295x2. As it stands, I'll probably go for a dual r9 290x configuration. I can definitely find an 8gb card and a 4Gb for less than a titan, and a good 2k monitor at 27-29 inches was going to cost anyway. Still, I appreciate any and all comments. I'll keep this thread open until I make my purchases in a few weeks.
