Awesome review Sky. I wish I had purchased that one instead of my hydro copper. Oh well!

Right now, the only gaming reason to buy Titans is if you're looking at Surround resolutions with AA. 6GB>3GB in some current situations, and might in some upcoming.

For anyone single monitor, 780s are the way to go.

Or 770 or 7970GE or 7950

SKYMTL,
As always a great review. I have been waiting for this, as I was wondering how the evga ACX cooler would perform. Since evga usually doesn't experiment much in the fan cooling realm, it was great to see the review talk about the pros and cons of the 2 fan setup.

Kudos SKY!
and thank you, well done.

I fixed it, meant to say 780. And no, I wouldn't recommend any of those with 780s kicking so much ass at $600..

I gotta say, with modifications the 780 are beasts of a card and can beat Titan when OC properly. Loving mine.

Why would you? just overclock the card yourself. My Stock 780 is running these speeds without issues.

And on advising a 780 for any single monitor.. really? 1440+ or 120hz, yea maybe but anything else and a 670 / 770 / 7970 / 7950 is plenty
