Sounds like a plan, custom profiles always do wonders altho it will get noisy but at least it won't cook... and gx2's usually overclock nicely if they are kept cool

the GX2 will be on par with a 280. the 280 gets higher average fps in crysis but the gx2 gets higher maximum.

you will not have a problem with the GX2 in today's games.

and the fan on the GX2 is not very loud.

and remember it isn't limited to 512MB end of story each gpu has 512MB so it splits the work in half so realistically 1 card does top of screen and second does bottom(just simplistic way to describe)
LOL...I suggest you do some reading on how SLI works, You only have 512mb for BOTH cores, End of story

And the GTX280 will have atleast twice the 'min' framerate because of the extra VRAM

oh i don't care about how loud it is ahah if only you knew how loud my cpu fan is (sounds like a lawn mower strangling a bear while the bear is strangling a duck) i don't know if i want to overclock i like it to last a long time but if the seller is willing to help with any RMA's then i'll overclock a little bit, how hot are the VRM's on the GX2 (if it has any) i know my 4870 vrm's spike to 112C in furmark in 5 seconds ahaha also did anybody ever make aftermarket cooling other than water blocks?

sorry for all the questions i have never even seen a GX2 in person and don't want it to fry in first day from me being an idiot.

VRMs ony my buddies GX2s dont run too hot but good luck with finding aftermarket stuff since GX2s are old now and need a special cooler sice its a dual pcb card with 2 cores

hmm chances are i'll stick with stock with like 3 or 4 fans zip tied to it depending on how hot it is. would that work?

That would look epic and should keep it cool too just dont break the shroud incase you need to RMA

I suggest you do research, don't make a thread asking for opinions then go shouting your mouth off when you get told things that you don't like.

There's more then enough threads/articles all over the internet which show that 512mb is not enough in this day and age.

You might get decent enough average frame rates but don't start crying when your card starts dipping into single digits when it becomes VRAM bound.

And you already have a 1Gb card and with the clock speed your 4870 is running at it isn't far off 4890 performance.

You need to start thinking more about game 'smoothness' and not '**** look at my average frame rates'

You're swaping out a decent single card for a hotter running, more power hungry dual card..... And I need to do research?
