  1. 2x GTX 650 in SLI will definitely get you better performance.

    What resolution are you going to game at?

    What's your PSU? and can your motherboard do SLI?
  2. I am still rocking an old Intel dx38BT, with a Q9550 but Intel website says it supports SLI, so i guess we're fine

    Are you sure that 2 650 will get me better performance? i have hear alot of opinion on the matter, and everytime its something...

    Looking at the Nvidia website, the 660 has more core and texture fill rate then twice the 650...

    I game at 1920x1080

    Thanks alot

    Well. you'll want to get the GTX 660 anyways... since 1 GB of vram isn't enough for 1080p gaming.
  4. +1 to 1gb not enough to run recent games on high settings (when you sli cards you don't add the vram together so 2x 1gb cards still only gives 1gb useable vram). get the 2gb 660, then you can always add another 660 later and you have the extra vram newer games need. with 2 650's you are stuck with 2 mediocore cards and you wont be able to sell because nobody will want.
  5. GTX 650 can't do SLI...

    Um... the new gtx 650 ti boost can and using 2 gtx 650 ti boost 2gb are better than the 680 and even cheaper.
  7. what is your budget & gaming resolution? we can suggest a possible better deal.

    I didn't know it was the 650 ti boost, I thought you meant the 650 non-ti. In that case find a 2GB card and you're all set. Although I would get the 660 because it has no dead cores in it like the 650 ti boost.
