So my next question is: will 2 660s perform as well as a single 680?
Ps: these are all 2gb cards. And I plan on using only a single monitor.
Pss: will the asus p9x79 LE main board be ok for a 2 card setup? Or will i need a higher end main board?
Thanks.
Were overlooking the obvious thing here. Why use CyberPower if your trying to save money? Build your own and save more money. Ask for a comparable build, we can put something together with equal or better performance for less, and rig building is EASY.

But please, continue insulting me instead of discussing the topic at hand. I never said that you implied anything, you're taking a post out of context.

Let people waste their electricity if they want to be so ignorant as to believe microstutter isn't real. I had a friend who reported similar going from 460x2 to a 480 that same generation. It may not be as bad on the Nvidia side, but it's still there, because like you said, it's AFR that is causing it. Maybe Nvidia drivers are better at detecting it, and then purposely delay the release of frames, but then that would lower the overall "scaling", and it's still there.

People have said the 660x2 is 20% faster than a single 680. So in that case, just an example

660x2 : 50-30-50-30-50-30-50 (average 40fps)
680 : 34-32-34-32-34-32 (average 33fps)

The 680 will provide a smoother game-play experience. Because not only AFR, but the absolute minimums are also much worse on SLI/CF, and those are also a killer.

Woah, never meant to reach this point here, I just stated that I didn't have any stutter with my SLI setup, I'm well aware of micro-stutters, heck look at my sig ...
I just meant that AMD and Nvidia has different way to optimize their drivers, and a few games may cause stutter while some other may be perfect.

Anyway, stay on topic guy's, for once I didn't meant to start anything XD

I'm sorry if I sounded rude, as a native french speaker, I sometimes have hard time to sound not-angry/non-provocative.
