However, when I put my current build together (PCPartPicker list), I didn't do it with SLI in mind; it's been more of a recent decision.
Approximate purchase date: June-> July, but I could see holding out for Black Friday in November Budget range: Ideally, less than $1000. System usage: Graphic-intensive gaming Overclocking: Maybe (I'd like the option, but I'm not comfortable with it at the moment) Why Am I Upgrading?: Everyone has a passion, and this is mine. This computer has truly made me happy, and I want to continue to improve it, even beyond what I might use it for.
I've asked around, and different sources have recommended upgrading the following:
Preferred websites: Amazon.com, Newegg, and MicroCenter (I'm near a local store)
Although I am prepared to spend whatever it will take to make the SLI setup work, I don't want to upgrade if I don't have to.
My question is: do I need to upgrade all 3 of those parts, or, as a friend suggested, can I just upgrade the motherboard (and maybe PSU)? I'll also gladly accept suggestions for hardware other than the options listed above.
