Did you inform them that you had the cards in SLI? If you failed to inform them, that would be on you for not letting them know as a 660TI is an upgrade over a single 570. If you let them know, they may have had you send them your other 570 in exchange for 2X 660ti's thumb.gif

You're lucky... I sent in my two GTX 470s and got GTXs 660 non Ti's

I did bios flash them, so I hope they can overclock well... but clearly it has to be an upgrade.

Now for your situation, I would've sent in both 570s and got two 660s; Why you may ask? I did the same with my 470s (one was working, lol).

Im sure i clicked the sli rig button in the RMA sheet and I'm 100% sure i made a comment about it being an sli rig in the comment section of the RMA sheet. I doubt they will do anything, because the second 570 was bought used, but i sent them a nasty email anyway.
so has anyone had any experience with 660 ti, just from reading the spec sheet it doent seem to be all that impressive other than the extra 800mb of ram and ive read that it doesn't do as well as even 1 570 at high resolutions.
