SLI or not?

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 
Need to know ASAP. I know a friend who is selling GTX 560 TI's for only £119 each or $193 each. I have bought one but should I buy two or not? I only do gaming on one monitor at 1920 x 1080 on one 27". I will play games like batman arkham city, bf3 etc etc.

Thanks!
Silky Smooth.
