Then its not so black and white. I would rather one fast card than two. Less hassle, more long term potential (can always add a second one...whereas with two or three smaller are already maxed out).

I want to see what AMD can do as right now the Titan eats AMDs lunch.

But at the price is it worth it I do not think so.
If it was set at a price range of $700 to $800 sure maybe. Ok so would two cards use less power no, but if your willing to pay $1000 for that card you really worried about power IMO
SLi cards don't have issues. Not that I have seen.
