Honestly along with my process of HDD simplification, after running with a single titan for a while, it really is enough for 2560x1600@60Hz, so not having to bother with SLI is kinda nice. Having said that, once I upgrade displays (waiting to hear on how g-sync and lightboost interact before choosing), then I may need to go back to 2/3 way. Plus running 1 card with 4x360s to cool it would be pretty silly. My ridiculous cooling now is driving overkill hardware choices which will then be used to justify overkill monitor choices
. Despite Derick trying to make me go red, with the GSync launch I think I'll be sticking Nvidia as long as it plays nice with lightboost. I'd rather have better quality of feel (crisp clear motion/lag/stutter/tearing) than necessarily higher FPS (if the 290x is as good as some are saying).
I've never been a fan of dual GPUs - to me they are always a compromise that you make based on space, pcie lanes etc. You never get the option for more vram (both 590 and 690 were lacking on that). You almost never get the clocks you would with single cards and you're inserting a pcie lane splitter in the path that might not be necessary. Given that 780/titan scaling hasn't been shown to be that great for that 4th card apart from synthetics and games with settings that you won't even get 60fps anyway, then it's not really worth it to go beyond 3 way, in which case you still have a 4th slot free anyway. The only exception to me is the 7970 vs 7990 where the 7990 had useful ports for 5 way eyefinity displays that the 7970s didn't. So yeah maybe my prejudice is just against Nvidia dual GPU cards
Anyway that's just me, Derick has a different "process" Edited by stren - 10/19/13 at 10:27am
