GTX 285 2 way SLI or a single new midrange Nvidia card - Page 2

post #11 of 14
Get rid of the 285, and get a single powerful GPU, so you dont have to hassle with drivers, frustration.

Also if you do decide to think you want to SLI, read up about a thing called microstutter - Its what made me not go CF or SLI

If you can get a GTX285 for real cheap YES. ( + if you dont care for DX11 )

If you pay the GTX285 nearly the price of a GTX560 TI ... NO.
