There's a clear argument that most people don't need a $2,000 video card setup, and the same could be said about a single $1,000 video card. People will also argue that what's the point of all this FPS performance, because as soon as you're over 30 FPS, the eye can't tell the difference. Any gamer will tell you that's an invalid argument, though.
The push for 120Hz displays as well means that we're able to make greater use of the FPS that are put on offer by setups like the GTX TITAN in SLI. Sure, it's not going to be for everyone because of the price tag, and if you're on a smaller screen that is only 1680 x 1050, we'd say you're wasting your money. We'd probably almost argue the same thing if you're on a 60Hz 1920 x 1080 screen, too.
Outside of the 120Hz point, though, the aggressive pricing that we're already seeing on 4k resolution screens means that it's a clear option for people, especially those who have the ability to drop $2,000 on a video card setup. You have to figure on top of that we've got another couple of thousand going into the rest of the system with RAID SSD drives, Extreme Edition processor and a ton of RAM to name just a few of the costly things that surround a video card setup like this.
If you've got the money and you've got the equipment to really make use of this kind of setup, we really wouldn't hesitate recommending it one bit. With the latest rumors also putting the upcoming GTX 700 series from NVIDIA to compete and replace the current GTX 600 series cards and replace them instead of coming out and replacing the $1,000 GTX TITAN, the purchase of this video card(s) becomes a lot more attractive, knowing that in two months it's not going to be replaced with something that is faster and costs less.
The only other thing we really want to check out is the performance of this TITAN SLI setup when we overclock it, as we saw some awesome gains when overclocking just a single card. While the gains won't be all that necessary in some areas, knowing just what you can get out of a $2,000 video card setup is going to be really interesting indeed.
