AW3418DW ?

So I just got this new monitor.. Runs great getting 65-80 fps in games everything on Ultra settings.

So move up to a second 1080ti for SLI or move on to one new 2080ti. Would like to get back to 100+fps as I had running my 27" monitor.

First, SLI is largely dying imo. It's extremely dependent on the game to implement it properly, so you wont get consistent performance across the board.

Second, the 2080ti is a beast, but I dunno if it's gonna get to 100+ FPS in all titles. It will, however, give a more consistent performance boost.

TLDR: Go for the 2080ti, but don't be surprised if some games still don't consistently stay over 100fps. That's what the G-Sync is for.

It is what it is.

TY, last time I did any CF or SLI was back in the ATI 1950XTX/8800GTS days
