Stick with 660ti sli?

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
Have no issues in game, but looking to possibly upgrade to 1440. Will my 660s be enough to power it. How much frame rate drop should i exspect going from 1080 to 1440?

Expect your FPS to be roughly cut in 1/2 due to 2560 x 1440 being almost double the resolution (2M pixels vs. 3.6M) - SLI 660ti's will be enough to power it with good FPS though, I'm currently running a single 660TI and 2560 x 1600 (4M pixels) and can play most games on high settings, just with lower AA (which won't be as necessary with the resolution increase, though with SLI 660TI's you should be able to turn up the AA )

I think 660ti SLI should be fine for single screen 1440p. You will not need as high of anti-aliasing on 1440p than you do on 1080 as far as i know; so you can expect to drop it down a notch (for example 4xMSAA down to 2x MSAA). If you are using a 60hz monitor then it should be doable. If you are expecting to overclock your display to 120hz you may need something stronger than a 660ti SLI to push >60fps.
