GTX 680 4GB to SLI GTX 680 GTX?

post #1 of 7

Worth it?

Mostly play games on my computer, like BT3 and WoW

You mean a single 680 4GB to SLI 680's 4GBs or SLI 680s 2GB?

In the former case it couldn't hurt for but it's not really needed for WoW as most MMO's are still CPU bound but for BF3 (I assume) then that would be wourth it if you have a 120hz or surround setup.

In the latter case I wouldn't do it as I'd prefer to just go 4GB SLI rather then back to 2GB cards.

With that said if it's for a single 1080 screen I wouldn't say it's worth unless you have to have everything maxed, a single 680 is still powerful enough to run BF3 and most games mostly maxed and looking mighty fine. Good luck on decision though.

If you can, try to fill out your rig so we have more info on your system though.

U2410 so a nice solid 16:10 1920x1200 (congrats btw, I miss 16:10 sometimes) . With that rig I would say if you have any plans to get a third screen for surround then definitely yes get a second one, if you're gonna stick with just two screens (one for gaming) then I say no as the gains won't be easily noticeable in most games as a single 680 already maxes them out, even on a 1200 screen.

I assume you still play more WoW than BF3 so for the little time you spend on BF3 the gains just don't seem worth it to me.
