to SLI or not to SLI GTX570

post #1 of 23
Thread Starter 
Hey guys,

Rig listed below.

I would like to know if I would get any gains from 2 570s

I believe they don't make my model card anymore from asus...

I play games at 1080p but I want to be future proof, will I be better off waiting for a new card gpu to arrive?

That's all I would like to know, peace of mind if its worth the upgrade or wait for a new card.

If so any updates on new releases?

Cheers,
Project Y.Gear

I would SLI. You would get up to 90% scaling with those cards. Just about max out any game.

If you have the cash, why not

You'll max any game at your res with two GTX570s, especially @ 900core.

If you decide to keep your psu, only run your cards @ stock. A HX750 would be the minimum for OC'd 570s.

Is a sli setupd even needed to max your current games? ask yourself that question and save some money
post #9 of 23
Hell Yeah! Do it.

SLI 570s rock and max out any game out there, right now and in the foreseeable future.

You might want to think about upgrading your PSU, though. A high quality 750w can handle a pair of these cards overclocked to their limits no problem.
