GTX280 SLi question

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
So, I'm going to be short and questionative (if that's even a word, and if it isn't then it is now)

1- How much performance boost would I notice from 1 GTX280 to 2 GTX280s?
2- Would my E8400 bottleneck them?
3- 850Watt is plenty right?
4- If they get bottle necked by my 8400 what GHz should I run it at to not bottle neck them?

Edit: or should I sell this 280 and get a GTX295?

By the looks of things, it looks okay, but I could be wrong.

850watt should be ok just check the Amp's needed on the 12v rails. And im not too sure but I don't think the E8400 would bottleneck them.

1) In most games there's a pretty noticeable difference.
2) At stock speeds maybe, but if you put it around 4.0ghz, you won't have any problems.
3) Depends on the +12v rail.
