erplace dead 680 for sli again, or upgrade to single 970

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
I have 2 gtx 680's 2GB , and one died last week. I am considering getting another 680 2gb and continue on with SLI.

My other option was to upgrade to the gtx970 single, for now.

monitors are old school dell 1200p res. x2.

must be able to acquire full cover blocks, and back plates.

really gonna miss seeing this though




any opinion greatly valued

If you can get a 680 cheap enough I'd go that route just because in the next 3-6 months who knows what nVidia will drop and it'll kill the value on the 970's.

Seeing as you already have blocks and such, I would suggest just picking up another cheap used 680 and going that way till new cards are released.

At least that is what I would do.

Are those just your basic 680's, I'm seeing 680's EVGA going anywhere from 150-180, someone on OCN might have one they want to sell, did you check the marketplace?

I'd wait personally, although I do love me some 980ti's with what we've been spectulating as to what we will see in the next 6 months or so I'd hate to invest that kind of cash in something that will take a hit like that.

Not knowing where your based at, check this http://www.ebay.com/itm/EVGA-GeForce-GTX-680-SC-Signature2-Dual-Fan-2048MB-GDDR5-02G-P4-2687-KR-/151955088592?hash=item23613aa4d0:g:Tr4AAOSwGotWnVRO; there's plenty on eBay at the moment.

I'd go with singe 970 and some OC, since an Overclocked 970 can beat 680s without problem.. also the 970 have more Vram..

I recommended the Gigabyte 970 Windforce or G1 + full waterblock thumb.gif
