WOW!

Have you guys seen the recent announcement by nVidia? With the launch of the 780ti they are dropping the prices of the 780 to 499$ and the 770 to 329$!!!!!!!

That puts me in a really though spot as I was hunting for a second 670FTW but they are either discontinued (newegg) or sell for more than a 770 at this time! I mean for 410$ I might as well get a 330$ 770 and plan for another 770 down the road.

If you guys find a cheap EVGA 670 FTW 2GB anywhere let me know! They should cost less than a 770 no?

You don't need it to be the same manufacturer for SLI to work. It only has to be the same model card. The only things that matter are really clock speeds and video memory. If you SLI two cards and one has 4 GB and one has 2 GB, it'll just act like it only has 2 GB of effective memory between the two of them. If you SLI two cards and one is clocked at 1.15 GHz and one is clocked at 1.10 GHz, then both will act at 1.10 GHz.

A price drop on the GTX 770 might not impact the 670 prices at all.

For $329 a 770 is a beast.

Thanks Deus!

I know about the fact it does not have to be from the same manufacturer and that any VRAM over 2GB in the second card will be "wasted". Thanks for the nice find at 290$!

The problem is I'm borderline OCD when it comes to my rig (I'm sure most of you understand) and would much rather have indentical cards in SLI. Also the FTW is binned at higher clock speeds and comes OC'd from the box. And my single interaction with EVGA for an RMA a while back was a great experience.

Guess I'll wait a little and try to snag a cheap EVGA 670 FTW, if not I'll get that Asus with impressive cooling you linked.
