GTX 760 in SLI?

Hi everyone, I am planning to upgrade my video cards soon and I want to run SLI. I have been talking to people and I have gotten mixed views. Some say SLI all the way and some say single gpu would be better. Would you recommend gtx 760's in SLI or a more expensive single gpu? Thanks!

  1. You almost always want to go with a more powerful single GPU. It minimizes small things like tearing and stuttering. You should look at the GTX 770 or possibly even the 780 if you feel like it.
  2. I would go for SLi myself and have done so for the last four gaming rigs that I've had.

    I have heard that before, but the benchmarks of two 760's are better than the 780, but the 780 is definitely a option. :)

    It all depends on your total budget and also what cards you are actually getting. If you do go SLI I would recommend getting 2 Asus 760's as they have superior cooling IMO.

    If you are talking about this one: http://us.msi.com/product/vga/N760-TF-2GD5-OC.html#overview then yes, that is a very good card. The TwinFrozr design gives great cooling, and it is an OC card.
