1xTitan black, 2x AMD R9 290X (OC), or 2x 780ti

Alright, heres the down low, I live in canada, as such it costs a hell of a lot in HST to get things in from the US, from the looks of things I'm paying 500$ in taxes to get my computer in (built by main gear) now I need to cut down on the cash to be able to pay that much for taxes! So I have decided it is a battle of the GPU's, should I choose 1 titan black, 2 OC AMD R9 290x (100-200 $ Less) or 2x 780ti which is what I currently have selected in which case I have to go cut a bunch of things off.

    Oooh. Why not just build it yourself? If a kid can do it you can to. And aren't there any of those companies in Canada? And he's right 2x 290x seems to be better.

    Well...no we don't have anybody like that here, and I just don't have the time to get it done, also I'm pretty sure I'd end up messing it up somehow :( i would if I knew i wouldn't screw it up.
  6. Trust me I was the same way. I turned 16 and went all out and bought my components. I used Linus and NewEgg on Youtube. They will explain everything from start to end. I installed everything without a problem. And it takes like 3-4 hours the first time. I'm sure you can find the time :P.
