GTX 480 SLI V 6970 crossfire - Page 2

Adding a 2nd 480 is def the better option given your current setup. Plus you get to keep all the bonus frills like Cuda/PhysX!

my first one cost $750 (got it back when they came out)

my second one cost me $350...

And they cost about $320 if you really look around

Then you run into scaling issues and (from what I have heard) poor crossfire drivers. I'd stay wit the 580. If you want to wait, the 6990 or 590 should be out soon. Upgrade to one of those.

750 USD?

I've always heard Aussie prices are crazy high. But at least you got a ton of performance for your money

According to my very shallow google search 1 USD = 0.99759 AUD

so ~748.1925 USD? Pretty much the same haha.

well IMHO just get another 480 given you get a good PSU for those..its still DX11 and one of the poster's comment is right that if you're gonna play 1080p and 1200p then vram comes in handy to that..although one poster commented with regards the driver..well thats true..i've owned 2 5850's and drivers ain't getting better with the release..that's why i bought a pair of 470's..

so far satisfied with performance and scaling with 2 GPU's
