Stupid question 570+560

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
So I'm going to feel stupid for asking this but I was curious. Can I buy a 560 or 560ti and use it with my 570 to help with performance. I know that in sli you need the same card but I'm just throwing it out there. Would it help? Its for bf3 btw =)

I want to sli my 570 but its going to cost me 500$ in which i dont have. I'm in college so my monthly income isn't much. New PSU, card, and sleeving supplies.

No, SLI only works with identical models.

Yes, Unfortunately Nvidia isn't like Ati. So you can't mix and match like you can on the Ati side.

I too am in the market for a second 570. Waiting for BestBuy to get more in stock so I can use four different gift cards to offset $200 of the cost lol
