Hi guys,

I currently own a single Asus Direct CU II GTX 670 2GB and really want a second, however titan is supposed to be coming out on monday and the GTX 7XX series in March / April

I'm looking for a second Asus Direct CU II GTX 670 2GB but the newest model seems to be an OC edition.. Could i flash my original card with the OC Edition bios so they are the same?

I can pick up a second GTX 670 for £309 currently or wait until next week to see how much titan is here in the UK but i'm guessing its going to be much dearer than the second GTX 670? I cant afford much more than £400 at a push.

Would you buy a second GTX 670 now and be happy with it or wait to see what titan has to offer or the GTX 700 series? I'm guessing i'm going to get much more of an upgrade with the second 670 than i will with a single gtx 700 series card. Most new gens give about a 30% performance increase over the last but if i get a second gtx 670 i should see higher gains than 30% in most games?

My 120hz monitor and Corsair HX1050 are begging me to go SLI!

Are you GTX 670 SLI owners out there happy with the purchase of your second card?

Always buy a single, strong card if you can, so I would wait for Titan, it is supposed be within 30% of a 690. If you do decide to get a 670 then you dont need to flash, the other card will simply be downlocked to the slowest ones speeds, just OC the other one and you Ok. Also, you have the 2gb GTx670, so if i were you I wouldn't SLi as you would eventually be limited by the 2gb Vram

wait for titan. its expected to 50 - 55% faster than GTX 680. if you get your hands on a titan (these are going to be in short supply for a while after launch) you could sell your GTX 670. should fetch you around £250. throw in the £400 you are willing to spend and you should be able to get Titan. expected price USD 900. would be around £650.

I picked up two 670 FTW 4GB two weeks ago and they are running great ! I was going to get one GTX 690 but i didn't like that they don't come with a backing plate (fugly) so i changed my mind plus i saved $200

a second gtx 670 is going to be better than a single 700 series I'm guessing?
No one knows about it yet...but probably yes....since all of the 600 series owners can get a better driver support in the future (we hope so)

There is so much rumor about what the Titan will be it's impossible to say how it will perform or how much it will cost. I went from a pair of 6950s to a single 7970 in early Jan and I was disappointed because there wasnt a performance increase. The sound level went to almost nothing which was great but there was no perceptible difference in actual performance. From what I understand, it is fairly typical to see these types of results and if it holds true for the nVidia, the 670s in SLI would provide results on par with the next generations single GPU flagship (780 if they keep the convention going). How it actually compares is purely theoretical on my end but I've seen a number of results over the years to be reasonably confident that it would be the case. So, you can potentially have similar performance to the next gen flagship for roughly half the price but there is the possibility of microstutter. As for microstutter, I'm not sure if what I was seeing with my AMD setups was microstutter or this latency we're starting to see in newer benchmarks (happened on both of my setups so I'm think latency).

Why would you want a more powerfull card? The 670 is plenty strong for the games of 2013

sli scaling is pretty decent I'd say go for it. I'm actually considering to upgrade as well. I'm selling my 680 now. hopefully someone buys it asap then ima wait for awhile when prices settle down from where I'm from, If I can't get one from my area then it's no biggie. I would prolly buy a non-reference 7970 (or maybe two)

My single gtx 670 is great but I have a 120hz monitor and really want to get the most from it so sli would get me closer to the 120fps target as I'm only running 1080p single 120hz monitor

if I go sli and my motherboard is x8 speed for sli, will it slow down my first card in games that don't support sli??

The loss from going from x16 to x8 is so small that it is under 1%. Some times the x8 even out performed the x16
