Worth buying a second 570 for SLI ?

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
Hello,

I have a question. I currently have a Gainward GTX 570 Phantom and I really want more power in my rig. I was thinking on buying a second 570 Phantom so I am able to skip the whole Kepler-Series and then buy a new 800-Series graphics card. I also thought about getting two 660Ti´s or one 670/680 which I then keep thill the first or second 800-Seires graphics card. What would you recommend me ?
Thanks a lot
Paul

My system:

Asus P8Z68 V-Pro/gen3 Motherboard
Intel i7 26ook CPU
Corsair Vengeance LP 8GB RAM
Gainward GTX 570 Phantom
Be quiet Dark Rock Advanced CPU-Cooler
Be quiet Dark Power 750W PSU
Crucial M4 256Gb SSD
Scythe Kaze Master Fan Controller
Be quiet Shadow Wing
Corsair C70+ 5xAf120 case fans

It all comes down to what you play and at what resolution. For latest games and at what resolutions. Latest games require more GPU power and at higher resolutions, even the gtx 570 sli wouldn't be enough. Not enough future proofing.

While I agree that the latest games (& future ones) need a lot of GPU power, 570s in SLI are really powerful.
In fact, they're faster than almost any single card solution @ 1080p and only lack in Vram compared to the newer models (& higher power consumption).

If you're on a single 1080p monitor, adding another 570 would be the cheapest way to go for a significant increase in power.
I say go for it thumb.gif

I have 2 in my SigRig and they are epic. I play at 1080p and the framerate is through the roof. Go for it. thumb.gif
