GTX 480 and GTX 570 SLI

post #1 of 13
Thread Starter 
Ok I can't for the life of me find a GTX 480 for SLI without it being super overpriced. I have checked many forums and craigslist and all I get are people who act like they really want to sell but when it comes to for me to pay they never want to respond.

Now my question is should I just sell my 480 and maybe get 2 570s for SLI? I only play on 1080p and don't plan on going any higher. Would really like to get high fps on battlefield 3 and maybe be a little future proof. thanks for your help

i think the 480 should do fine for now, so just wait foe 6xx cards, and buy one of those... if not then the 570/580 prices will go down...

I know there's one in the For Sale forums but you might not have access to it yet because you don't have 35 rep.

There's still a bit of a wait yet for Kepler, and I know you want to get stuck into BF3 with great frame rates tongue.gif. I've looked into the GTX480, they are still a great card, and only recently have come down a bit in cost. Its a bit of a waste to resell the 480 and buy the 570's. Keep a look out on ebay, make sure they're selling it for way less than a 570. Frame rates are still very close between 480's/570's, should be great in sli wink.gif
