first time using SLI so I hope all goes well.

Wish me luck. Hope to get close to 1000mhz core on these puppies.

im sorry that but that was STUPID. You would have gotten better performance from just adding another 560ti. You do realize that the 560ti has more cuda cores, oc's better, and is arguably the BEST mid-upper range card available. EASILY the best bang for the buck. Im sorry but you just wasted ALOT of money to get worse performance than just adding another 560ti. My 560ti's do, 1012mhz on 1.085v....just sayin.

going SLI was a last minute decision today. I had been trying to buy the Zotac Amp! 580 but it was 429.99 shipped and my daily spending limit is 400. I need a GPU in 4 days for BF3 so i could not wait for funds to clear on paypal+ shipping times.

I was going to buy a 570 but my sparkle 560 Ti was a lousy overclocker and I really enjoy the overclocking process and it's rewards.

The ati cards did not include games I care about so again, nvidia is the better option. after my two 20 dollar mail in rebates (i purchased the two cards seperate one after the other with two different credit cards to make sure i get both MIRs.) and I can sell the second batman game for ~30-45 on ebay.

the ONLY thing I am worried about is the fact that I opted for this random MSI card instead of the ASUS Direct CUII to save about 20 dollars. I am already regretting that choice but since i paid for rush processing they shipped in about 20 minutes.

Just hoping they prove decent.

And finally the reason i didn't just get another 560 ti is because I would have needed to get another matching card and they run about 250$ and it's a crappy model. (i got it on a sale for 193$)

I have since sold it on ebay so I had to get something fast.

If I can get 1000mhz core on these 560s I will be VERY happy.

Sorry for the DP. But if your other 560ti was a lousy OC'er why not just sale it for a solid resale value and get two EVGA (or whatever brand) 560ti's.

I have to agree. You could have gotten the second Ti and left them at the low overclock and it would still have been better performance than the pair of 560s. They are essentially higher clocked 460s, so you could even have went with a pair of those and saved more money, or gotten better version. There have been some (good model) floating around the $130-150 range, that is a MUCH better performance/$ than 560s.

I should qualify my OC numbers with the fact they are water cooled.

again, to get a second 560 Ti and to avoid issues I would have needed to get the same model, which cant be found for under 250 dollars right now. I got it on sale for 193 dollars initially and benchmarks for 2 GTX 560 smash a single 580.

all benchmarks for games I actually play tend to show very small differences between 560 SLI and 560 Ti SLI, but the 560 Ti draws a decent bit of extra power.
