How well will 2x 4gb 670s in SLI work for BF3?

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
I'm thinking of running 3x of my 2560x1400 monitors and I'm thinking of picking up another 4gb 670.

I can OC my current card with a voltage mod I got from here (this community rocks) @ 1242/7100 stable in BF3. I can go up to 1242/7300 but its not stable in BF3, so I just use that for e-peen and benchmarking. If I can get another good card like this (it ain't golden, but it shines!) would it be worth using 2 of these bad boys for 3 way?

Anyone have any experience?

This is just my opinion but I would stick to 2 way SLI as the benefit of the 3rd card is not as noticeable and would be a waste of money and I think that 2 x 4gb cards in SLI should be sufficient. thumb.gif

I am sure others on the forum would have first hand experience.

Im really not sure if the 470s can handle it. You might have to tone the settings down a notch. I wouldnt mess with 3 way SLI to be honest. Not with a 470 anyway.


EDIT: Though you said 470s

I can show my results for 5760*1080 with 2*680s if it helps smile.gif BF3 was the worst game for feeling a little stuttery but with MSAA turned off, it was smooth as butter.
