well i think sli 285 will be about 1.5 time the speed of a 570/480

but you still won't get DX11.......

so you will kinda be spending money on something that won't max out future and alot of current games

and would the 6950 be faster than sli 285s? because if its not, i wouldnt be getting it over a $150 gtx 285.

i could do some benchmarks of games that you request/play....

but there is a CPU difference between me and you... so it will make a difference

the 570/480 will still be about 25-30% faster then what you have now..... at the same settings

I mean i never went below 50 fps with just one 480....

as long as i didn't go overkill with the AA

I only got the second 480 due to the fact they were going cheap and i knew it would be hard to get one later on

basically it boils down to this:

Second 285 = 1.8-1.9x Peformance of what you have now... but no future support

GTX480/570 = 1.2-1.3x Peformance of what you have now... with future support

eh i would just be wasting money. the only dx11 game i have is bfbc2 which i dont play that much. So i think a second 285 would be better. or i might as well just wait for the next gen cards to come out. more dx11 games would prob release by then

I would say, definitely dont SLI the 285. Pick up a GTX570. With a modest overclock the 570 will beat 285's with all the advantages of a single card, power heat, noise + DX11 etc.

Hock off the 285 prob get $120 for it.

Alternatively pick up the even cheaper $300 HD6950 and bios flash it to a 6970, upgrade cost $180 ish
