SLI GTX 980 Ti or Titan X Build? $3000 Budget.

BeyCinema

Hello!

 

So I'm planning to build my first PC soon and I was wondering if I should build it with two GTX 980 Ti's or if I should get the Titan X. Anyone have any suggestions? Give me anything haha. Or maybe I should wait for some of the new GPU's coming out? Also, please give me suggestions on the other parts like what processor, ram, ssd, hard drive etc. you would use for your build.

 

Thanks,

Jay

What do you want to do/still need for your build? do you have a monitor/peripherals?? 2x980 Tis are overkill for most things.

980 ti are so much cheaper and only have like 3 FPS less in most games. So if you SLI 2 980 tis then you'll be on a similar standard to a Titan X SLI

There isn't a world of difference between the 980ti and the Titan X when it comes to gaming, even in a single GPU configuration. From the amount of video editors and content creators using the Titan X, I'd have to assume there are some serious benefits when it comes to hardware acceleration in editing and rendering programs, but almost none when it comes to gaming. 

Like someone else said before me, 2 980TIs are going to give you very similar performance to 2 Titan Xs.

Not really..

 

Remember how the Titan X has 12GB Vram and 980Ti has 6GB?

Yeah.

Since when does RAM directly affect performance when you have so much of it?

Source? And I don't mean the mental K|NGP|IN from EVGA, that is super duper expensive.

I mean things like the G1 Gaming, or the reference 980 Ti. I find it difficult to believe that they straight up beat a Titan X. 

 

Hello!

 

So I'm planning to build my first PC soon and I was wondering if I should build it with two GTX 980 Ti's or if I should get the Titan X. Anyone have any suggestions? Give me anything haha. Or maybe I should wait for some of the new GPU's coming out? Also, please give me suggestions on the other parts like what processor, ram, ssd, hard drive etc. you would use for your build.

 

Thanks,

Jay

What are you planning to do with your PC? If we have a use case, we can have a better idea of what parts to suggest you, and whether you really need to spend $3000 (because in terms of tech, that's quite a lot).
