These days are mostly gone. Sure if you are just starting out it is usually better to start out with the single more powerful card opposed to having two weaker cards. However, he is starting off with two pretty powerful cards to begin with. SLI scales pretty well, and most of the issues that happened a lot in the past are quite minimal now. I remember when I was running SLI with my 460's, everything setup very well. The scaling was pretty good, and I dont recall having one issue at all to be honest.

If he wants 60+ FPS @ 1080p some games will require him to have at least two cards. With the 780 releasing soon, this could possibly change his options, but if he already owns at least one 670 probably no point really in not going SLI.

I disagree, Crossfire and SLi issues still show up regularly, its software issues mostly.

I think saying it shows up "regularly" is quite a bit of an exaggeration. rolleyes.gif

SLI:

Add Second Card
Connect SLI Bridge
Enable SLI in Control Panel (Enhance 3D Performance).

Done...

I had an Asrock board that just a couple months ago would not boot in Crossfire. Same cards worked fine in the board before that and also my current board.
