Second gtx670 for sli or newer 700 series gpu?

Thought about it. Still pricey though and my pc doubles as my media center in the living room. Though I wouldn't mind gaming on a nice smaller 120 monitor, gaming on a big screen also rocks.

You really, really don't want to use 120Hz mode on a TV. The input lag is tremendous and would pretty much negate the benefit of being at "120Hz."


Is that so? Hmm, didn't consider or research that. Thanks for the insight. Back to original topic though, I'd still like to see better performance and get fps for most of not all my games at sixty or above with graphic wh0re settings. Haven't looked at many benchmarks for the 700 series, but are they that great? Also most benchmarks I see omit the 670 and just compare 680's and 660's. Anyone know why that is?

I currently run a SLi setup on my gtx 670 sc and absolutely love it. Wasn't planning on getting it until Max Payne 3 wouldn't run at 60fps with a single card so decided to splurge a bit and got a 2nd card. Even if I spent near $1,000 I never regretted it considering the performance I get. Most newer games support it and if it doesn't newer drivers tend to fix it pretty quickly. Older games probably won't support it, but will run at 100+ fps easily with a single card.

I still dominate 95% of games with sli 560ti's and the top 5% I run on high instead of ultra.

So I would go out on a limb and say you will be more than fine for the next couple years with sli 670's.

I went alittle nuts on my newest upgrade, i got the pc in my sig and a 120 3d capable 27inch. I dont regret a thing.


I havent tried to overclock my cards yet simply because no game has benefited much. Even with running 3d vision.
