The Titan Z is a new-ish card from NVIDIA that is $2600 online.
It is basically two GTX Titans strapped together. Any thoughts on this? I think it is overpriced given that two Titans doesnt even equal up to one Titan Z....WHICH IS TWO TITANS!

EDIT
Apparently writing this the $2600 stores were not credible. The official price is $1500 which I find to still be a little high but still a high-end enthusiast card. My only negative towards this card is that 980 Ti's in SLI will preform almost as well as this card and can't be bottlenecked as easily.

Do you really need a such powerful (and expensive) graphic card for gaming?

not in the slightest
The regular Titan can play 1440p at insane levels and average 4k
the Titan X is even better
the the Titan Z is two Titan X's.

If you want to play average games something like a gtx 960 is a great start :)

I wasn't talking about me.

The Titans X and Z are extremely powerful so if you have to buy one of these it's that you really need it. And I'm not sure you need it. 'Guess a 980 or 980 Ti (already insanely expensive) would be way enough.

The Titan Z is using dual Kepler based GK110 GPUs. Hardly new, since it came out over a year ago, and was a complete flop when compared to the R9 295X2. It's also not comparable to the Titan X, which contains a single Maxwell based GK200 GPU.
