what should i get

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
Im looking at either a 2nd gts 450 for sli or a 550ti. What will perform better? I will be overclocking whichever one i get. I read a few articles saying that gts 450 in sli is better than gtx 470, but havent found anything to compare it to the 550ti.

any thoughts?

SLI'd 450's would be more powerful than a single 550ti.

^ this.

550 is around 15-20% faster than a 450

450 sli is 90% faster than a single 450

so 90% > 20%
