post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
Hello seniors,

Currently I have ATI HD5970 and I'm thinking to upgrade. My question is which card to buy,


A- 2x 670 FTW
B- 1 x 780



My setup,


i7 920
12 GB Mushkin Redline FrostByte Edition
ASUS P6X58D-E (motherboard)
>>Planing to buy SSD (Samsung 840 Pro)



Thank you.

Thank you.

One Vote for the 780, it's almost always a better Idea to go with one single card over two less powerful ones in SLI. It allows for expandability down the road and also removes the headaches of SLI. Also, the extra gig of Vram is going to help you being more future proof as I can tell you like to hang on to your cards
