3-Way SLi.

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
I currently own 3 - 24" monitors, running on a Single GTX 680. I decided that it's time to update. But... Which card? I will be buying from Amazon, and the money I have to spend on the graphic cards each is £340

I have been thinking either to go with one of these, for Nvidia cards.

http://www.amazon.co.uk/GeForce-DirectCU-Graphics-Express-Display/dp/B00CY5GP08/ref=sr_1_5?ie=UTF8&qid=1381466533&sr=8-5 - Asus GTX 770 Nvidia GeForce.

I am wanting the best performance, but which card would be best to chose? If any other card, that's in my price range, please suggest.

If your going with either one of those that you linked. I would go with the 770.

But if I were you. I would drop a little more cash and get an sli 780 instead. You will probably need the extra 1gb.

The 680 and 770 are essentially identical (there's also a thread here for turning a 680 into a 770 with a simple bios change). How much ram does your 680 have on board? Have you considered adding another pair of 680's? I'd only really consider it if your current 680 has 4gb of ram as at 5760x1080 (or 1200), it can start making a difference depending on what games you play.

Here's some results with 2 and 3 4gb 680's at 5760x1080: http://www.overclockers.com/forums/showthread.php?t=736793

Hope that helps!
