Gtx 680 vs Gtx 480 sli for Surround (no 3D)

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
well the title says it all.. power consumption & temps arent really a factor as i plan on watercooling anyway but id like to know which one would be better for a 3 monitor set up? i thought 2 cards would be a lot better atleast for multi monitor set up that is.

gtx 680 would be better. it's as fast, if not faster, than x2 480's, but also has more VRAM. plus you won't have any microstutter/driver issues common to all multi-GPU setups. you should also consider a 7970 with its 3gb of vram
