I have had 1 or 2 problems with SLI in the past, but as of today, there is no game I'm currently playing or have played in a bit that suffers from SLI issues, and I'm thoroughly enjoying my GTX 580's in SLI overclocked to 850mhz
Shhh!

You're looking at a max 20% improvement, that's not even remotely close to being noticeable.

Just sayin'. rolleyes.gif

I think of 15% fps improvement as being the bare minimum you'd possibly ever be able to 'notice' just playing a game, and 20% to be perhaps what you'd call 'somewhat obvious'.

However, the whole 120MHz thing doesn't really matter in the equation. 20% difference is 20% difference. But I'd think +20% would be more likely to be noticeable when it occurs in the 30-60fps range, as opposed to the 60-120fps range ... simply because FPS differences inherently become less visible as FPS goes up.

So I've made a decision at last...My local store are getting 29 Asus Direct CU II TOP GTX 670's in tomorrow and they have price matched another company i found it for cheaper so im getting an Asus Direct CU II TOP GTX 670 tomorrow for £359. I should be able to get £240ish for my GTX 580. That should tie me over until christmas, the 20% performance boost will be nice and it beats the GTX 680! also the 2GB VRAM will ensure i have plenty for the rest of the year should anything come out that needs it!

Ill let you know what i think of it tomorrow when i pick it up and manage to do some testing thumb.gif

I got 2 590s to hold me over until the gtx 685 comes out...

The gtx 690 is just wayyyy over priced. And my 2 590s are faster then 1 gtx 690 any who..

Only thing beating me atm are 2 + gtx 690s or Tri sli 680s..

I don't see it at all
I'd much rather have two gtx 580s than a single 680 any day of the week

Especially currently whe you can pick up peaches like my asus matrix gtx580s for peanuts off eBay

Not only does a single 580 SPANK a 680 in actual computing , but two of them in sli, well you'll wonder what the fuss is about with a 680

And you'll get two decent 580s for less than the price of a crap brand 680 now

Don't get sucked into the hype, keep your 580 and pick another up for peanuts
