Want two GTX TITANs in SLI but SLI scares me

post #1 of 20
Thread Starter 
I have a single 1080p 120 Hz monitor and want the most fps possible for the most demanding current and future games. I want two GTX TITANs in SLI but I've never had a multi-GPU setup before. Should I be worried? I am worried about micro-stutter, games not supporting SLI, etc.

What is your recommendation?

Running mine for the first time tonight. Came from SLI680's which were awesome smooth, same with the titans. Feels like 1 GPU. If you can afford it and could use the power/vram they seem like a good thing. If you game @ 1080P consider 2 x 690's instead they will produce higher FPS so long as the game supports it and you dont max the vram.

Get one first, see if it's enough and then buy a 2nd one, test it and if you don't like it sell it/return it?

Why would he be kidding, obviously he is the people Titan is aimed at. They want the best regardless of the price, nothing wrong with that.

@ OP, SLI Isn't scary. I've run SLI setups for years now and never really had a problem unless its an old game that flat out doesn't support it. I've run 670's, 680's and a 690 recently that were all very good. Get the beasts!

Watercool a single titan and you have plenty performance to hit 120FPS.

Except they're out of stock pretty much everywhere. You could pay a premium for people who bought extras on EBay. An extra $500 and you could order one there but that's out of the question for me, lol.

I'd go single and see how that pans out then add a second if you need it.
