What's a good mobo that I can SLI with? I have an i5-3570k

I'm trying to buy another GTX 680, but the problem is I have to upgrade my mobo. I also have a 650W PSU and if that isn't sufficient enough, I would have to upgrade that too making it an even more expensive upgrade. So what's a good mobo I can get that's like $100 or less that I can SLI with? Would 650W PSU be efficient enough for two GTX 680's?

That's the cheapest I could find. As for your PSU that's plenty for 2 way SLI

Sorry my first link was for a Z87. This is a Z77 to fit your CPU

That's great! Nice. Now I just have to find another 680 on Craigslist or Fry's

Quick question though. What's so demanding that one 680 isn't good enough anyway?

1440p. I'm actually thinking about it and idk if 2GB of VRAM is sufficient enough

I could just wait until the new AMD cards and see whats out. If not, get a SC GTX 780 or something and not have to worry about my mobo
#72Dhas_a_MIGRANEPosted 9/21/2013 11:48:58 AM
Yeah if you're looking at high resolutions you might want to wait for the new AMD GPUs and see what they have to offer. You could probably sell your 680 then and get whatever the top of the line one is.

Yeah I will just do that. AMD usually offers higher VRAM anyway.

Well you could always sell both of your kidneys and get a Titan with 6 GB

Some guy is actually selling it for $725 OBO on CL but he's selling it as is even though it is unused. I doubt I trust that crap, but idk. Or I could get dual 7970 GHz edition? Idk man it's a tough choice right now. I guess I should wait there's really nothing else I could do.
