Good choice the 2x HD7770 in CrossFire would only be 80w TDP on each card, which is amazing, which motherboard would you use and CPU you forgot to mention - cheers! Mate...

can someone suggest what two 560 448 core in SLI or two 570's in dual SLI would be like? and what brand would you use

ie. Gigabyte or MSI because Im thinking of going SLI GTX560TI 448 core SLI SETUP as I have one already but can sell if anyone has better ideas?

what about 1 GTX670 OVER 1300 CUDA CORES
- BETTER THAN 2X GTX560TI 448 core SLI SETUP

ALL HELP APPRECIATED must be Nvidia to get physics in gaming. -cheers! David

That's VFM.
You get better results with 2x 6870 or 6850 for approx the same price or a bit lover usually. depending somewhat on your planned resolution, the 6870 has a clear advantage if you are planning to run eyefinity bcos its higher memory bandwidth.

Personally i would go with gtx 670 and then save up $100 or so to buy another gtx 670 later. If you get 570 SLI, it will be a bit better than 670 but only by a bit and you will lack the ability to upgrade in the future...plus gtx 670 is more power efficient and has technology like GPU Boost and vsync...

To Carniflex, and apruler:

thank-you both for your help Ive decided because Ive been with Nvidea. for over 10 years to stick with Nvidea. and buy a GTX670 now and when I have the dosh buy another to go sli

Like someone suggested...


I think ATI 7 SERIES ARE GREAT however they don't have physics unlike Nvidea

if you can make do without physics, then AMD ARE GOOD VALUE but nvidea will not sell the Physics engine to ATI/AMD

thanks again for all your help....

You're talking about PhysX, which isn't used in very many games at all. The Batman games, Mafia II and I think there may be like two more. You can very easily play the games with that turned off too, and it will still look quite good. Unless you are specifically wanting to play those games, don't worry about it.

Seeing as you're going bang for buck here, AMD are definitely the way to go here (if you want dual cards now).

That being said, I would also go with a 670 and sli in the future

Just 2 mins ago I bought my 1st GTX670 then in one month when I get paid I will buy another...

Ive decided to buy an MSI GTX670 reference design
, as its power efficient, and faster than the 7950 non overclocked.

bought online in the UK...

I need a faster v.3.0 PCI-E SLOTS in motherboard with 16x lanes, I have a spare MSI Z77A G45 BOARD however, would like to upgrade to the MSI Z77 GD65 BOARD as its won every single award that's going here and in the USA too...

I like to clock my CPUs so will I stay with the G45 OR GD65?
