No definitely not. But as far as getting a titan, I dont think its worth it, unless your gaming at 2560x1660 or something like that. But save the 400-500 bucks. And just get a 780.

No it won't. But you can also wait for the 8000 series, rumor is they're coming out this sept to oct. If I were in your place, I'd wait for the 8000 series since it's very close. And rumor has it that NVIDIA won't release any more card this year. It will also come with lots of free games.

3D gaming, Titan! You need more of those VRAM.

I think a 8150 WILL bottleneck a titan unless it is heavily OCed.
AMDs offerings aren't as good as intel right now, and the bulldozer had disproportionally poor single thread performance.

But i am planning to OC as much as it can run stable with a watercooling system; Still not enough budget for the price/quality that intel offers, trying to get a good rig spending as less as i can. Maybe i could upgrade to a 9370 if i wait a couple of months.

Meh, i'll buy the GPU And watercooling system, overclock the CPU and see how it handles. Thanks!

PS: I picked one of your posts as solution but it was solved in more than one answer.

Sure, I know AMD chips can be OCed very well specially when ran on a water cooled system. Goodluck bro! I'm envious of your titan. :D
