Gtx 570 going sli Need suggestions/info for monitor set up etc

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
Hey all i currently have a leadtek ref gtx 570 which i got for a amazing price so now i am considering getting a asus gtx 570 voltage tweak edition with the money i saved to go sli. What i'd like to know as the title suggests what sort of monitor set up would suit for this sli set up, i am thinking about gettin a higher resolution monitor set up or a 3d monitor would i see much of a increase in graphic quality with games such as crysis 2? Another thing would there be any problem with 2 diff brand gpus and if i voltage tweaked the asus would there be any problems with the ref card? I also want to know if i just stick with my 24 inch 1920x1080p monitor if i was to upgrade to sli would i see any dramatic performance in games or would it just be slightly higher fps?

Sorry about the huge paragraph i do not construct paragraphs well anyway i look forward to all feedback and tips thanks!

1. A higher resolution monitor or 3D monitor is always nice, although they do cost a bit of $$ so I would say that if your happy with the look and size of your current monitor, just to stick with that, otherwise if you want to go crazy then grab a 30" monitor, they will blow you away
2. You shouldn't have any problems mixing graphics card brands, the only problem would be if the 2nd card can't handle as much voltage - you can only overclock as high as the worst card in your system, so that will be the biggest factor.
3. You may be able to turn up AA higher, or set everything to extreme settings, but if you already max out games with good fps, then you're not going to see much of a difference visually. Yes adding a 2nd 570 is a large increase in performance as far as FPS goes (80 - 100% increase in FPS)

Hope that answers all your questions, good luck with the 2nd 570, just make sure you have the right supporting components (good clocked processor, excellent airflow in the case, and most importantly a top quality PSU with the correct amount of power)
