We both suffered for at least a month w/ this SLI crap. It'll be nice to be back on a single card again. I just hope my old i5 760 holds up. I'm getting old and lazy, the thought of installing a new board/cpu & probably a fresh windows install is quite unnerving, lol.
You're welcome... and yeah, SLI works a lot better than crossfire but it's not problem-free still. I am VERY happy with my SC ACX 780.... glad to hear you were able to snap one up! The i5 760 will be a bottleneck but I wouldn't worry about it to be honest. I know exactly what you mean as far as re-doing computers... I'm happy enough to swap video cards, memory, etc. but pulling motherboards every week is a bit old hat to me at this point.
