Please guys help me, :D :D :D

anyone with experience or know what the better option is out of TITAN X 12gb SLI vs 980ti 6GB SLI... I have the money for the more costly GPU but is it worth it or are they the same when it comes to rendering in octane? I'm spending about 6.5k on this computer and wont want to update it for awhile which is why I've gone for the 12GB ( only one availiable at my local shop )
I'm not sure where to find test videos or ratings/comparisons of the two different cards so any input would be great also wandering what the power consumption is like I'm looking at buying a 1000 Watt Coolermaster V1000 80+ Gold Modular Power Supply to power the TITAN SLI will this be enough? the man at the PC store said it will be fine.

apart from power consumption and the actual performance of the cards and comparing them would anyone be able to tell me if there's much of an increase on their electricity bill? I'm living at parents at the moment and don't want to build them up a huge energy bill I'm running a GTX 670 at the moment and my computer is on pretty much 24/7 but will learn to turn it off when I upgrade my system.

thanks for anyone time for reading this reply or not :) :)

( I'm days out from spending money on this machine just so it can run octane very well I'm not wanting to update this machine again for a long time )
any recommendations welcomed I'm not used to GPU based renders but they seem the way to go so no harm done correcting me or telling me this is a horrible build.
