I was a gametrailers.com forum poster, blogged a lot, loved the "pc" and "gaming hardware" forums since 2006. But due to a recent change in the site, most users have stopped and its a dead town. So rather than just reading everything on this site from behind the stage, I had to sign up and start posting to fulfill my nerdy needs tongue.gif

It's like starting from ground zero seeing my post count so low lol

SLI FTW. My 670's are great with my Crossover 27Q 1440p monitor.

I did it.

I don't feel great about it.

But I did it.

*************


I will feel good about it when they arrive though. And once I see that performance.

I hope it comes with an SLi connector. I mean I'm sure I've got one, but eh, just be nice, can't recall if my first EVGA did or not.

I am also in the same boat, but with 3x1080p. My 2x570 isn't enough for Skyrim, Witcher 2, ArmaII, BF3, and Max Payne 3 [except for this game, it runs pretty well]. I am trying to tell myself why to not go to 2x670, is it worth waiting for the 7xx series?

If you can afford it then go for it. Amazing performance from these cards. I started with one (got mine afew days earlier than official release here in australia) absolutely loved it, and toyed with the idea of a 2nd for a while, in the end I bit the bullet and picked up a 2nd, and I don't regret it at all! thumb.gif

edit: well it looks like I was too late.. haha You wont be dissapointed. biggrin.gif

You're motherboard should have come with an SLI connector. The card will not.

I went from two 570 HD's to two 670's, and I felt like it was worth it, it's been a big improvement in real demanding games such as Metro 2033, especially at 1440p.

It won't come with a connector, only AMD cards come with bridges, and the 670 is already Kepler, unless you mean waiting for big kepler:confused:

Yeah, I just found one of them, but I'm worried about it's length. ARgh. I remember it came with a longer one, but I can't find it anywhere, despite putting all the parts in the same box. A frustrating thing to happen.

Could order one off Amazon, but will wait and see.

Mkilbride, congrats! Let us know how it runs!
PCModderMike, I was also thinking about 2x 7970, but I have always been disappointed with ATI drivers. The vRam on it sounds niiiice.

I don't really have any experience with AMD/ATI cards, so I'm not sure if their driver support is considered great or not. But I do know some guys who use 7970's, and they have been very pleased with them. I don't want to derail your thread OP, with getting into which is better, but it's a toss up for me. The extra memory on a 7970 is comforting, especially when running triple monitor setups, or HD+ monitor, but I have had no issues with the 2GB on my 670's and my Crossover monitor. Also I think the 670 and 7970 perform very similar, but the 670 is cheaper.
