No point in getting another one if you're only using 1 monitor, plus you max out everything. Save your money.

I agree with epic Pie. But there are some 570's where they have updated from the 4+1 phasing and dont burn out anymore. But you give it a quater or half year. You will be either getting another 570 at way better prices or just getting a new 600 series card. Dont be like me, buy stuff you really dont need. sli with these monster of cards and only one monitor isnt necessary. It is FUN but not necessary. Good luck either way.

Your sonic is free of the issues that reference 570s have, so no worries there. I'd personally say wait until you have to turn down settings, then SLI.

However, a processor at 3.0ghz is going to bottleneck any high end SLI setup horribly. It's probably already bottlenecking your single 570...

The reason for this post is that i do a lot of gaming also work from home. if i upgrade my cpu to a 990X, would it really help with CAD, it is running a little bit slow win i but it in 3D, at work we use xeon CPU to process the info to 3D, for the 3D GPU we use one Quadro FX 5800. i am on that computer all day long! lol its so dam fast.... I for got to point out, we use a 60" at work.

A 2600k @ 5 GHz actually outperforms an overclocked 990X at CAD. Barely, but for $700 less.... Either way, for what you're doing, I'd say wait 5 months for the Sandy Bridge-E processors. Take the money you would have spent on a 990X and put it towards a 3GB 580, since CAD and 3D programs eat VRAM like it's a bowl of mints.

I've never seen my CPU usage go over 60% in any game while my GPU is almost always at 100%. Even an I5 won't bottleneck high end cards.
