I was wondering what would give me higher frames per second (FPS), 2x SLI GTX 660TI PE 2GB @ 1306 vs. GTX 780 3GB.
Keep in mind that I will be only running 1 monitor (Maybe 2 in future) and they will both be running at 1080p (1920 x 1080).

I am aware the the SLI will use more power and make more heat also.
@ 1080p the SLi will get you more FPS...

The deal broke down because the guy is all like I'll need you to bring two government issued ID's since it's my first transaction through the particular website I was using, I was like seriously? rolleyes.gif

I was going to go to his place and bring the card (so he can test it out on his system), the box along with everything that came with it and the receipt and now he thinks I'm going to scam him out of his 7950? rolleyes.gif

So I guess I'm on team green for the foreseeable future. tongue.gif

By the way how do I get around to setting a custom fan profile for my GPU? When I'm gaming I don't know whether or not the fan spinning up is my Coolermaster Seidon 120XL AIO cooler or my GPU.

My GPU isn't overclocked at all (that my change but to be perfectly honest my GTX 660 Ti destroys everything I play).

Can anyone guide me through overclocking my 660 Ti PE?

Thanks! biggrin.gif

Even a novice like me has no issue navigating MSI Afterburner which is great for setting up a custom fan profile. The card I have now would cook if it weren't for that lovely little program. Tip: Don't set any of the start with windows or start OC with windows and just turn it on manually after booting up.

Decided on the Gigabyte 660ti should be here by Wednesday. Thanks again for the all the help and suggestions.

MATEEEEEEE, Sounds like a plan! Probably wont need Tri SLI, I can run every game maxed out at 60 constant right now (including Metro: LL).

Good morning,

Just installed my second 660ti for SLI, and wanted to know if this is normal. I've been playing Metro: Last Light since it came with the second card, and while it is a very demanding game even at 1080p, I'm very impressed at how the cards handle the game. Locked at 60 FPS, Very High Quality, Very High Tesselation, normal motion blur, advanced PhysX, and SSAA set to off @ 1080p. The problem I'm having is with temps; under load, the top card is almost 20C warmer than the bottom card, maxing at 74C for the top card, and 56C for the bottom card with custom fan profile set in Afterburner. I feel like I have decent air flow in my Coolermaster Storm Trooper case, 3 x 120mm fans for intake with 1 blowing right in front of the cards, and 2 x 120mm and 1 x 140mm for exhaust. I appreciate any help and thank you!

How many slots do you have inbetween the two cards?

I have an MSI Z77 mPower motherboard, and there is 1 PCI-e X1 slot between the cards, plenty of space. Even if it weren't, there is nothing I could do about it because with this motherboard, this is the only configuration in which SLI would work; I couldn't move the second card to the third PCI-x X16 slot because it only runs at X4 speed when filled.
