Solved When is SLI needed? Tags: Graphics Last response: August 30, 2013 2:10 PM in Graphics & Displays Share g335 August 30, 2013 2:01:27 PM Hello Building a new pc soon, not sure which video card will go with but the screen resolution I will probably go with is 1920x1080p. I will game and do video editing, 3D design, and rendering. My cpu will be a AMD 8350. Would SLI benefit at all with this set up? I might buy a second monitor to use when I am doing the 3D, digital graphics and rendering.
