Is any PC graphics card worth $3000? Nvidia launches most ridiculous GPU yet

Nvidia’s pushing the limits of gaming technology… and gamer’s wallets with its Titan Z card.

In March, Nvidia pulled back the covers on the new card. The Titan Z is packing two GK110 chips, which means 5760 CUDA cores and 12 gigs of memory. Nvidia’s not kidding around with this one folks.

As tempting as the Titan Z might be in terms of specs, there’s a $3000 USD price tag to also worry about. Don’t forget that there are other parts of the PC that still need to be paid for besides the graphics card.

If the price tag scares you away, not to worry. AMD is offering its Radeon R9 295×2, which packs two R9 graphics cards, for a measly $1500.
