Why are you going for quad sli? dual sli is the best imo.. After it the performance differences become very minimal. If you want, I'll link some threads about the lack of performance after dual.

Yes JKin, smile.gif You can call it an 'extreme' build thumb.gif

@JameyScott If you can give me the link, that would be great. I am open to all kinds of suggestions right now. I thought Quad SLI/Crossfire would be cool smile.gif That's why I thought so. If you can point me to the right info why Quad SLI performance boost is not much, then I will definitely keep that in mind before making my final move!

Thanks guys!

http://www.guru3d.com/articles_pages/geforce_gtx_670_2_and_3way_sli_review,15.html Read through this article, it should help you out a lot.

This article really highlights how you get a huge performance increase in dual, but the only noticeable difference in tri (and obviously quad) the only benefit is at a very high resolution. You can notice you don't get twice the performance of one card with dual, and how that it only gets a mild performance boost with triple, just think how little quad is.

The only reason I could see anyone running it to promote how big their wallet is, or are using it purely for benchmarking. (There are other uses, but I don't think that's what you are going for.)

I would honestly just get two of the best graphics card you can. Dual Titans or Dual 780s should be more than enough for anything you want to do.

My dual 770s run any game I throw at it with a 144hz 1080P monitor, 60Hz 1080P monitor, and a 1366x768 monitor hooked up to it. While I only use one for gaming, I still have all three screens running. I maintain around 120-140fps with the occasional dip to 95-100 on BF3.

@jamey

You made a valid point. Thanks!

I will try to make my head win over my heart biggrin.gif

Don't forget to rep those who helped! Especially if they are saving you 2k+ wink.gif

I had the same problem. I really wanted to get the 780s, but I couldn't justify the 200+ bucks for 10-15% performance. I'm glad I went with the 770s, they are basically overclocked 680s. They do quite well, in my opinion. They 780s are basically underclocked Titans, for 350-400 bucks less. (Not really underclocked they have less cuda cores, ram, etc)

I agree with Jamey. Of course 4 way SLI would be so sweet but it is a little pointless for practical use. It would be sweet however if you were doing like a Mod of the Month type build or show build. For at home use, you can get "Extreme" for much less smile.gif
