I currently own a GTX 660 right now, and having got a bigger monitor, BF4 is unplayable on Ultra. (40-50fps) ewww. Anyways I noticed that Nvidia has enforced price drops across the board, and I just found out my P67 G43 MSI motherboard is 8x/8x SLI compatible. I have a Seasonic X650 that is definitely capable of handling two 660s in SLI. Another 660 would cost me $220 shipped. A 770 would cost me 371 shipped. Should I wait for Black Friday/CyberMonday? Or should I buy something now, since they have those sweet Nvidia holiday bundle deals. I prefer the Asus cards since theyre so darn quiet. I'm so confused, and I know that 660s SLI'd are quite powerful. http://lanoc.org/review/video-cards/5953-nvidia-gtx-660-sli-performance?showall=&start=1

Depending on your resolution, I wouldn't SLI a card with 2 GB of VRAM and a 192-bit memory bus. You could wait for Black Friday and get a good deal on a 280X. BF4 will have AMD's Mantle API implemented soon.

it can max out BF4 using 1080.

40-50 fps unplayable? You're joking right?
