560 SLI possible with a i5 750

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
So im still waiting for my Gigabyte 560 SOC to upgrade from my old 260GTX. The 260 worked fine on my OLD tv att 1300x769 Resolution. But now i gotten myself another tv 1920x1080 and well the GTX 260 Cant run much on that if i want to crank upp my settings.

So my plan is to try with 1 singel card att first to see what performance i get and if i even do need a second card for SLI.

The question is, Can my CPU handle 2x560 SOC in SLI?

My system is

Asus P7P55D-E PRO
I5 750@4ghz H50
Corsair 4GB (2x2048MB) 1600MHz XMS3
Corsair TX 850 PSU

The Gigabyte card seems to be delayed here in sweden so i have time to change my card for another one if im better of going for only 1 GPU, Though i hope to be able to play Crysis 2 att good settings =D

No problems. a noticeable bottleneck (real life, not benches), will only appear at about GTX580 SLI level.

U guys think 1 card is Enough att 1080p resolution? I guess heavier games like Crysis and Metro 2033 wont run with max settings but those 2 games are insane req anyway =)

Lmao =P

Well then i can hold off for a while on the second card. Prices might go down to Crysis 2 hits the store.

The status on my Card show Delayed, And i browsed another Computer website here in sweden and they have a date set to 2 MARCH!? But that cant possible be correct =P

I LOVE that statement!

When my new EVGA GTX 570's arrive tomorrow Crysis should be hiding from me!
