3) GTX 670 SLi for 1080p isn't a waste at all. You try running Metro2033 at ultra settings at that res. and your FPS are in the low 30ties. With 2 cards it's double up to 60. When I played Metro2033 with 3x GTX 580 i went from 30 to 60 to 90 FPS by going from 1-2-3 cards.
Also SLi isn't just about more performance but also making it possible to enable the best picture quality options without loosing performance.
I did not realize he was from Norway.
For 1080p 680 4GB is all anyone would need. Even a 2GB would be enough. However, the 4GB models offer higher overclocks. According to this a single 680 gets 59 fps in Metro 2033
. It is a waste of money to get 670 SLI at 1080p. If you plan on going to a higher res then yes it is worth it. If you are going to a higher res then you may as well buy a 7970 because they seem to perform better at 1440 and up.
SLI does not scale like that. You cannot just say oh a single 670 gets 30 fps so SLI would be 60. Depends on the game, drivers, and scaling. What picture quality settings do you get from using SLI?? (besides having dedicated physx)Edited by i7Stealth1366 - 9/27/12 at 12:00pm
