    I'm probably way behind on this, but wasn't the Titan X somewhere around $1k and the most (or at least among the most) powerful graphics cards on the market? I feel like I'm not really familiar enough with PC hardware to appreciate it fully, but pretty cool I suppose. I'm hoping with virtual reality (Oculus Rift, HTC Vive) higher end graphics cards become more common place, and as a result the price goes down and they become more accessible to the average consumer. I mean that already seems to be happening on its own anyway, but maybe at a faster rate than normal.

    That is correct, the TITAN X is current the most expensive ($1,200) and the most powerful until it's 1080 release. That's what's so amazing about this.
