GTX 660 Ti SLI or GTX 680 4gb

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
I'm getting replacements and have 2 monitors 120hz. What should I go with and why? Gaming at 1080p. TIA

What memory sizes are we talking about in each case? 2 or 3GB 660ti, and 2 or 4GB 680? Also, you say this is at 1080p, but do you have any plans to increase resolutions (like maybe go to 3 x 1080p) while using whichever setup you decide on here, or will you definitely stick to 1080p, single monitor? Do you ever do any high-res texture mods on your games? How tech-savvy are you? Have you ever run an SLI setup before? Any chance you'd be up for OC'ing that processor? You do have the K version, which means you should be OC'ing wink.gif

I have done SLI before with no issues and love it with my old 560 ti. I was limited to texture modes because of the 1gb. I might plan to upgrade to another monitor with higher resolution in the future. For the 660 ti it is 2gb and the 680 it is 4gb. I have had a new processor which is my daily set at 4.7 for my 2700k. It can go up to 5 but I have not tried any higher as I was not comfortable with the heat I was getting with my D14 (high 80s) in prime testing. Should I be getting such high heat anyways at 5 1.45 on full load with the D14?
