Thinking About Getting Another 660 Ti

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
I was thinking about getting a second 660 Ti before they completely disappear. I'll most likely get a reference design PNY GTX 660 Ti (my OCD won't allow me to have one from a different brand). However, I'm not sure if I can run two 660 Tis with my current PC. I have a 600W PC Power and Cooling MKIII PSU and a Fractal Design Core 1000 microATX case with a 120mm fan in the front and a 92mm fan in the back. I'm most concerned about power and cooling. Two 660 Tis seem more than enough to run most games at 1080p, so I'll probably leave both at stock. The CPU, however, is overclocked to 4.4GHz. Cooling worries my even more. I doubt my case has sufficient cooling for an overclocked CPU and two GPUs. Any advice? Should I get the GPU? Or is a new case a better idea? Do I even have enough power for two stock 660Tis and an overclocked i5 3570K?

So that's the max you case does is 1x front and 1x in back? Can you change out the 92M in the back for another 120M? Specs show your case with a 120M on the side too. I dunno, sounds like not a good case for this idea
