Hello!
Right now I have 2 GTX 480 at 900 core and 2100 memory with temps never going above 62c, is it worth it to upgrade to a GTX 670 SLI? Or should I just stay with my GTX 480?
Thanks!

Are your 480's watercooled 62c is pretty damn good for those cards especially with an overclock. I must ask you a question why do you want to upgrade?

Just stick with it! There's no need to upgrade at all, maybe wait for a year or two then it would be a better time to upgrade.

I agree with asa you are good for at least another year if not two.

Yes, they are watercooled. As for why I want to upgrade, I just wanted to know if I would see a performance gain going from my 480 sli to 670 sli. And if that performance gain would be noticeable in games.

The performance leap would be monstrous. However, if you already have two 480's in SLI than again, that will run games fine for at least another year. By that time you may find 670's for cheaper or there might be a bigger, better, fancier thing out there you'll want.

I depends on the resolution of your monitor.

The performance gains would be absolutely huge.

Assuming you are running at 1080p or above, the performance increase would be very noticeable in games.

But whether it is worth it is another matter. Most people would say 480 sli is good enough.

Thank you everyone for your answers. I'll just stay with my 480 SLI for another year, and then upgrade.
