SLI GT 240s?

post #1 of 12
Thread Starter 
Alright so my friend has 150$ to bestbuy and needs to buy RAM he has a GT 240 already and i suggested he bought another one to SLI using the remaining 70$ to buy RAM. Can you SLI 240s and also do they need to be the same brand?

Don'y do it, the gt 240 is useless, and best buy overprices everything.
Save the 70 and just get a better one in the future.

And buy all pc parts from newegg

As far as I know they don't need to be the same brand, and yes, you can SLi them. Make sure they have the same amount of memory on each though.

You can SLI them, and they don't have to be the same brand. But why to do this? These cards are weak, I don't get a point to SLI them. Better to buy one used and faster card, than SLI GT240s

You have different types of GT 240s so you you should check if they have the same 96 shader G92 core. Blazing angel is right though, GT 240 SLI is not worth it.

GTS 450
GTX 550Ti

HD 5670
HD 5750
HD 5770

Those are all worth it.

Honestly, I feel this is a waste of cash. He's better off saving up a little more to buy something that will absolutely crush two 240s.

Edit:
So I see he's stuck with gift cards. I'm not sure if this works, but he could try buying something and then just return it for cash. He'll have to be careful of what he picks since Best Buy has the most stipulations I've ever seen.

You're not going to get much of a performance boost by SLI-ing them. These cards are old and weak. By SLI-ing them, he's investing more money into obsolete technology, won't get much out of it, and will not get much by selling them in the future.
