This would be a cheap and outstanding alternative for a high end gaming pc, i dont get it why wouldnt Nvidia develop these to be SLI?? Imagine twom 750 ti FTW editions in harmony, itd be sick.

Because nvidia likes money.

Nothing past the fact that they're not.

They could be, but they're not. And yeah, nvidia likes money, if people could SLI 750ti cards they wouldnt buy 760, or 770 cards. Not to mention that SLI is more geared towards the enthusiast crowd, while the 750 series cards, most definitely are not.

Its neither outstanding nor, cheap to SLI, two weak cards, it has huge drawbacks and limitations.

Look at it this way, in SLI you are not going to get 2x the performance, in most cases its 1.7 or 1.5 so for a solid card like the 760 there is a noticeable difference when you get the extra 50% but with the 750/ti SLI will feel like less of an increase because of the lower baseline.

I had 2 6850's so from personal experience crossfire of two weak cards is never a good idea.

No, you just buy a GTX 770 instead. It's only slightly more expensive than 2 x 750ti and it's more powerful and you don't have to deal with multi gpu

Not to mention the 750ti is really only a good value for people with low watt power supplies as the price for performance isn't that good.

750 isn't badly priced at $120 though, and the decent OC'd ones are often the same price after rebate getting stock 750ti performance.

Also, in comparison, I've gotten two GTX 660's for $160 and $150 each off Newegg in the last couple months, and one came with AC4 too...which is quite a bit more powerful for only about $10 more than 2x 750ti.

1 high end graphics card is better than 2 mid end graphics cards in SLi. The 750Ti is too weak to consider SLIing.

Because it's not a card anyone thinking clearly will SLI.
#9TheOppositePosted 4/21/2014 5:49:13 PM
They probably could have made them compatible but left off the SLI bridge connector for whatever reason. It probably wouldn't be economically viable to SLI two of those though considering the price of the 760, 770, etc.
#10Majoras_pantsPosted 4/21/2014 5:57:58 PM
If they allowed that, they'd probably raise the price on it, since that's added value for a lot of people. And then it wouldn't be as great of a budget card.
