SLI 670 or Wait? - Page 2

post #11 of 30
Thread Starter 
The last benchmarks I saw were stating that the 780 was about 15% better than the 680 and the SC+ ed of the 670 I have now is on par with a normal 680. So, tell me if this makes since, getting a 670 and increasing it even 75% would be a better bang for the buck than getting a 780 when it comes out because the two 670's would be like 60% better than a single 670 and cheaper in the long run, right?

Get another 670.

Better yet. Find a used one so you can save some cash.

2 670s are going to be seriously bottlenecked by the processor. You might have to overclock upto 4.8 ghz to take advantage of these gpus. But they are still going to be bottlenecked at 1080p res. I say you wait for 700 series.

How about sell your 670 and get the titan or 690? A brucey bonus with the titan is 6gb of ram, you should get a good price for your 670 on ebay.
post #16 of 30
Another 670 would be plenty for what you want. I game at 2560x1600 and satisfy your needs, lol, you should be more than happy at 1080p

As for your powersupply:

I do not think the 690 or Titan are realistic options. Both are over the price of getting a single 780 GTX when it's released and well over the price of another 670 GTX even if I sell my current one.

I am still having difficulties pulling the trigger. What would win? SLI'd 670GTX's or a single 780GTX? What would be the about % difference?

BTW: My RAM wasn't in the DB here at OC.net and it auto filled in the wrong stuff. I have 8GB of RAM. biggrin.gif

I just read that there is a new Geforce card comming late this summer

http://www.techpowerup.com/181601/NVIDIA-Working-on-Second-GK110-based-GeForce-Graphics-Card-for-Summer.html

From what i understood it will be someting in between the GTX 680 and the GTX Titan

Dont know what they will call it but GTX 685 could be a name
