post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
Okay, so to cut it short: Shall i get a new mobo capable of SLi, and another 560, or a single 580?

Thanks in advance
(also any other reccomendations are welcome )

If it's x8/x8 I don't think there's much of a difference. The only P67 motherboards that do x16/x16 have the nf200 chip and are over $300.

Edit: I just looked up your board, it runs a x8/x8 which is fine. If I'm not mistaken it's only a couple % performance loss. Just grab another 560, it'll still be faster than a 580 and you won't have to sell your 560.

If yours supports x8/x8 mode SLI i'd upgrade your current single card setup to an SLI setup without hesitation.

8/8 mode is almost indistinguishable from 16/16 mode
