I think with this much power under his belt the GPU and CPU can handle PhysX just fine without a dedicated PhysX card - heck at a good OC I've heard of people offloading physx entirely to the CPU.

CPU can not handle PhysX at all effectively. I don't doubt a 670 or higher can handle it, but you never know. Although it would have to be a 450 or higher to be useful.

So if the size of ssd's are an issue, why not buy 4 256gb or 120gb and raid them? If I had money like that I would.

SLI vram is synchronous not added so the 4gb 690 is really 2gb per gpu.

Corsair HX750W is all you need for sli 670 based system, this isnt fermi there definitely better on power usage.

with 4gb vram you wont get any phone calls for a while lol, and if anything happens just tell him how to disable SLI and he'll still get more than acceptable frames until new drivers are released.

I agree with the above post - SLI tech is getting better and better and my SLI 580's are running strong - the Kepler architecture is indeed newer so probably a little more buggy but once taken into consideration disabling SLI and just running with the power of one is enough for many games out there right now. Especially when your client/friend is so computer-illiterate that he can't fully utilize his computer I doubt that he would care all that much about insanely high frame rates.

The 690 is still dual GPUs, they are just on one card. As others have said, the 4GB is referring to both GPUs having 2GB, but it does not add up. I am not familar with a 4GB 690 where each GPU has 4GB, but I have not looked. The other thing thats nice about dual 670s (or 680s) is if there are ever problems with a single GPU, you can still use the other as the first is RMAd, where he would have no GPUs while any issues with the single 690 is RMAd. You would be more than fine with an 850 for either dual GPU setup.

Even if his "pockets are deep", he probably doesnt want to spend money he doesnt need to. I'd go with a single 4GB 670, and see if he has any problems. He can always order a 2nd GPU later if he wants to.

So which 4gb 670 do you reccomend for SLI? Looking around I am leaning towards the EVGA Superclock. Further overclocking is not an option.

Try looking for something non reference if he is going to stick with air, try to get some better temps
