When is SLI needed?
Aug 30, 2013, 2:01 PM
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.

As far as I'm aware SLi is strictly for gaming, I don't think you will gain any benefit from it in the uses you have specified.
