The reason i say this, is because nVidia doesnt allow DP on non-workstation cards or have i got my wires mixed up?
The Titan and Titan blacks are pretty much cheap compute cards with the added bonus of being able to game on them

For your own sanities sake try and get away from this man made "upgrade bug".

I now have this mind set, CPU and motherboard shall be upgraded every 2nd release i.e 2700K --> 4700K etc...

GPU shall be upgraded every 2nd release also, Nvidia 5xx series, 7xx series, 9xx series etc...

This way you actually see a noticeable performance increase and in the long run save yourself a lot of money, UN-needed stress and aggravation.

Makes sense, seems like a waste of money upgrading every 6 months.

I just bought a second GTX 780 and you know what I did as soon as I read this post? I looked at them through my 900D's giant window and said out loud. "I hate you"

i wouldn't say its greed, its more like what i say when i was building cars for people, 'forever chasing numbers'

having 300bhp(780) as a daily driver is more than adequate, its economical, comfortable to live with and fast enough to have some fun with when you feel bored.

400bhp(780Ti) this is where in the pub people shout numbers, I have 400hp, but the skimpy 15" wheels(screen resolution) don't get the power down properly, and its quite thirsty and uneconomical, im also afraid to give it full beans because if anything breaks its expensive to replace!

500bhp(Titan Black/Ultra Etc) this was stupidly expensive to build, and you cant fully see what its capable of because there isnt anything which allows you to no holds bar give it some (excuse my French), then in order to see what it can do, you end up paying for serious track days (more screens, psu, cpu etc) and you've just fully entered the world of a bottomless pit because from there 600hp is the next step (maxwell or what ever is next on the cards)

that's the best way i can describe it, and im actually victim to this, i have had my fair share of cars, turbo's, super chargers, ive driven alot of cars people only see in a car park, and the owners always say the same thing, i want xxx amount of hp, then you explain that the disadvantages outweigh the advantages 10 fold, and they respond with well i want it because i can, not because i need.

nvidia just keep releasing stuff, because they know consumers will buy because want it not because they need it. Forever chasing them FPS!
