Yes but, if you sell your 560ti for 60-70P, then you would have about 140P to spend on a card. Trust me when I say that SLI problems, though few and far between, will ALWAYS happen on the games you want to play most. ie: BF4.

Just a suggestion. thumb.gif

I only have one GTX 560ti at present and I see where you are coming from but I would need to buy the new card before selling my current one and I can't afford to do that right now

OK - so spend +£250 for a 770gtx or spend £60-£70 for a 2nd card to get the same performance and that's sad????

It's the very definition of common sense!

Like I said earlier, I've yet to come across a game that isn't supported and I've no idea what micro-stuttering is - because don't have it. BF4 works fine on my setup.

get a 2nd one so you don't get SLI problems............hmmmmm.

Yes yes I contradicted myself on that one, but in a years time, there still wont be any single card that will touch sli 770's. The fact there is a single card that equals the dual 560ti's in performance means less problems. And BF4 is pretty much broken for 98% of people with dual GPU's (I'm not one of them surprisingly enough)
https://www.google.ca/search?q=BF4+studdering+problem&oq=BF4+studdering+problem&aqs=chrome..69i57.6241j0j1&sourceid=chrome&es_sm=93&ie=UTF-8#q=BF4+frame+drops+dual+gpu

And there are quite a few games that dont support it, they just arent AAA titles. Even some AAA titles dont support it on launch. Until you actually own dual cards, you dont understand the problems.

*EDIT*
Nevertheless, OP dont have enough, end of story.

Very nice thumb.gif Update your sig rig.

I dont get many problems either, but we also have much more current cards, older cards get more problems due to them not being supported as much anymore.

*EDIT*
Where be dat SLI bridge?

AFAIk. 560ti when it doesn run out of vram is 10-20%better than a 580,then a card that should reach these requirements is a pitcairn with 1280shaders(aka hd 7870/r9 270)


This oces up to 1250-1300mhz core and has 6pinx2
145GBP

Figured I should update you all I have found a seller of my card and he is willing to sell for £60 + shipping (£10) so it's a great deal smile.gif now to to figure out what to do about cooling them, I really wanted to fully water-cool them as it wold look awesome especially with what I have in mind I may do the Kracken G10 Mod also if I can find away of putting the block in a custom loop.

Nice!
Going to be completely honest, not worth watercooling them at all. Your better off saving the $140ish that the cooling would cost and saving it for better parts later on.

*EDIT*
That $140ish is for the Kraken G10+cheapest 120mm AIO cooler.
