New Card!! Which to get? $300 Budget. - Page 2

post #11 of 20
@mrmikepan
I dont think the two cards will run on SLI whilst one card is used as a dedicated physX card.
So your primary card will continue to run in 16x mode...Im not 100% on this but i think its probably right(still checking though)

The card unlocked to 6970 Bios is probably over the performance of any card I can get under 300.

Worth the extra cost for the cooling?

I recommend the 560 Ti. EK's about to release their 560 block for reference design cards.

This cards even a bit shorter than the norm. Stays cooler than my 260 as well.
