570 SLI to 680?

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
Been thinking about switching from my pair of 570 GTX SLI to 680.

Would it be a worthy switch?

After some initial issues with these cards, following drivers and firmware they have been running great and the drivers now seem happy and content but as always I have got the upgrade bug.

The question is, is it worth the switch?

I game at 1920x1080 so don't need to push a high res if that makes any difference. Just thinking of the power saving and headroom in the case.

Also, where would be the best place to sell these cards? lol

I wouldn't mate. I love my SLI'd 570's and the performance from these babies is more than enough for that resolution. thumb.gif

IMHO, no.
Wasn't a huge improvement from my 6950 CF to 680 SLI, could still be driver issues.
A single 680 for me pushes 80-90 FPS in Skyrim while 2 pushes at 120 (vsync on)
If I could return my cards (680), I'd buy 670 SLI.
I'd say keep those cards for now and wait. I think there was a rumor of 685s coming soon.

Also a good place to sell those cards at reddit.com/r/hardwareswap.
I sold my 6950s in 3 days, offers came in a day.

Hope that helps
