Y not Haswell? If I do go with Haskell, I could use the ASUS Maximus VI Extreme and get four GTX titans and get even better performance.

I gave you a Ivy-e not Haswell build look at what I put down and Titans is a Big joke Bro believe me when I tell you

you'll get plenty further with 2 780's or 2 R9 290X'S or even 2X 7990'S


The Titan is just a Marketing scheme the cards I showed you would pretty much crush a titan in performance

This card by itself is called the Titan killer http://www.extremetech.com/gaming/16...-killer-leaked

But you want the fastest. Read the specs on it. Nvidia and AMD are both good

Haswell CPUs have only four cores and only 16 native PCI-e lanes, although most Haswell MOBOs will add another eight lanes. Twenty four PCI-e lanes on Haswell MOBOs will support only up to three GPU cards running at only x16, x8/x8, or x8/x4/x4. Also, the Haswell CPUs have been running pretty hot when overclocked; hot enough to hamper performance.

The Ivy Bridge-e CPU recommended has six cores. The X79 MOBO (also known as the RIVE) and CPU that was recommended has 40 PCI-e lanes which can support up to four GPU cards as x16, x16/x16, x16/x8/x16, or x16/x8/x8/x8.

I'm running a Sandy Bridge-e CPU and work station board that can run circles around Haswell and the RIVE with an IVY Bridge-e will run circles around my rig.

In short Ivy Bridge-e will run circles around Haswell.

The benefits of a third card in SLI start to become negligible, a fourth one would just be $1,000 down the drain.

But with an unlimited budget, four GPUs have a certain cool factor, especially if they are water cooled (pardon the pun).

All seriousness aside, having more PCIe lanes available per GPU card will make a fewer number of cards in SLI or Crossfire faster. Two cards running at x16 each will have a slight edge over the same two cards running at x8/x8. Three cards at x16/x8/x16 will have even more of an edge over x8/x4/x4.
