Look here first! Some games will not respond well to "quad" sli set ups. Each time you add a GPU to the mix, the gains are smaller and smaller. They really run games slow. this contact form
A GTX 680, why not a 7970 ?

When someone starts another thread it often results in flaming and a rather useless generic response, 'Whatever works best in your system'. Since the launch... I found the Driver set and Surround setup on the Nvidia are so nice that I'm well pleased that I picked it over the 7970. bystanderMay 20, 2011, 4:22 AM The problem is you are comparing a single GPU to a card with 2 GPU's on them and when you put 2 together, it's like having

Your PSU starts at 1000 Watts; 200-350 USD. Fair points.

Nvidia 196.21 driver issues Help me m8s for GTX295 driver opinions... No need to go to a 6 month old driver (although some would disagree) unless you dont play the latest games and dont care about newer driver optimizations for those games. When I picked up another gtx295 I did not knew alot about benchmarks. Albeit without some the hassle of restrictions of SLI.Plus you can't really compare video cards the way you are trying.The architecures are completely different.SLI works fine, no one has ever claimed

I'm broke, yet I'm proud ! Sometimes if I dedicate one gpu to Physx some games like Crysis 2 and Turok work faster but for other games it just doesn't help at all.
The good news, that number is still the same. The GTX 680 can be found but it's hard and you have to be lucky and persistent. Where did you get it?You can still get a pretty nice price for a 295, its a beast of a card yet.What resolution do you run?

Within the confines of compatible mainboards you can increase the overall rendering performance of your games and thus increase your graphical gaming experience in several ways. Get a GTX 590 or two GTX580?The thing is I have over 70 games installed on my pc.
I mean why do they create sli cards or motherboard when you don't have the power with them? It was great that the X58 closed that gap where we no longer need one motherboard for Crossfire and another for SLI.

I bought the first GTX295 5 months ago and the second one just two months ago.I got both cards from ebay.I'm playing at 1920/1080 on an Asus VG236H.Actually you're right. I most say extremely sad.I thought adding another card would give same as the first card. DX9 games can only scale with three gpus but Nvidia and ati have found a work around with the gpus rendering in blocks of two in a AFR mode.

Try disabling one of your cards and run the troubled game again. Ask !
