    new GPU's on the horizon, if the right offer comes along I could be tempted to grab a Titan X

    what is everyone else's feelings on this card?

    Rumored UK prices to be about £900

    If you have money to throw around, I don't see why not. Mind you, you should get 1 or 3 4k monitors to put that bad boy to good use.

    4k would probably be my next upgrade, once they get to at least 120Hz :)



    So it's out, $999 probably £700-£800 then
    just waiting for benchmarks and whether I think I can afford it ....

    I'd head over to toms hardware and look up the article 'Best graphics card for the money: April 2015' before deciding. They go into great detail on the price vs performance comparison for all kinds of price ranges.

    Of course if you have lots of money to blow then you probably can't go wrong with the Titan X either. ;)

    no, because that would be most stupid idea throwing out your money.

    Just don't get a Mazda 6 MPS if you want the cheap on the road bit ;)

    Good to see Priorities taking place though, I'd have probably ended up with the Titan and never heard the end of it fom the wife.

    Its ok the wife has her mazda 6, wouldn't go MPS, sticking to cheap to run petrol models like the 1.8, not a huge investment just about SLI Titan x pricing :)
