no it is a single gpu card. it can potentially tie gtx460 SLI performance (raw speed). it may provide a better experience in many cases if SLI isn't working or in heavily demanding games that would be limited by the 460's 1GB frame buffer and lower bandwidth. it would be a cheaper solution than 460 SLI with more vram and a lot less noise, heat and power consumption. and yes, the 990xa UD3 has x16, x8 and x4 slots. SLI/CF run in x8,x8, not that it matters anyway.

PCI E 2.0 8x lanes vs 16x wouldn't make a difference worth a damn when SLi'in, not unless you are in GTX680 territory. Heck even the performance loss from running two GTX580's in 8x 8x SLi is a few frame drops, I'm talking under 5% hit on performance. PCI E 2.0 8X = PCI E 1.0 16X. That's plenty of bandwidth. I run 2 GTX465's on 8x SLi wink.gif

Get the GTX670 thumb.gif

It has a single x16 pciex slot and a x8 the 1st & 2nd slots but they drop down to x8 x8 when u sli or crossfire it also has one x16 slot running at x4

Currently running two 460's right now. They are great cards but heat and noise is an issue. Right now I am wainting to purchase two 660's if they preform the way I hope. I agree with many members as stated before. A single 7850 is the way to go. SLI is nice and can give you some good performance for the money but a 7850 is a little cheap beast!

560 is a 460 with a higher factory clock speed and a higher price tag. it's not so hard to figure out really. they perform the same. the 560 is a little pointless.

Not all GTX 460's will clock to a GTX 560 speed.


In a stock setting, SLI: GTX 560's > GTX 460's

In reality: Both are VRAM limited, 2 year old technology. Go with the 7850 if you want to get the good deal.
