    Maybe. It's a very specific card that will only truly benefit people looking to play games and do CUDA-based computing. It might find a spot in the higher end builds, but I'm doubtful towards it replacing the dual GTX 690 in the top build. Will have to wait for benchmarks to see how 3-way SLI Titans compare to 4-way SLI GTX 690s to make that judgement. I do think the GTX 680 or perhaps even the GTX 670 with a proper PCB stand tall in SLI configuration compared to a Titan. Benchmarks will show if I'm right.

    At $1000 it isn't easy to justify its place in any build as they are after all gaming (and price/performance) focused.

    That thing is way too big for a ITX build. Silverstone Sugo is where it is at.

    It is cheaper than the Samsung 840 Pro and it is better than Samsung 840, so I still think it has a place on the market.

    bad comparison. the 2500k and 3570k are the same price. The Samsung 830 and 840 pro are not.

    And for a long time, it was perfectly normal to buy the 2500k over the 3570k due to a very noticeable bump in price between them. Heck, there is still a decent argument for budget builds to grab the 2500k over the 3570k, entirely depending on location and store.

    ---------- Post added 2013-02-22 at 08:47 PM ----------

    Example: In Norway's komplett.no webstore the 3570k costs around 10% more than the 2500k. Not much (around 25 bucks), but could be vital for a strict budget.

    Yeah, in this case it seemms they've either stopped ordering or they've stopped producing, or there are far more people buying the 2500k than I thought.
