There is a store in my country with a very good deal on the EVGA GTX 660 ti/FTW/3GB/w-Backplate.I read about SLI 2GB with 3GB and I found out that I will only get the 2GB, and since this is on 1080p monitor, It's enough.

I have CM storm trooper .There is 2 fans in front intake and two fans in top Exhaust and one fan in the back exhaust and also I will add two more fans in the side intake .

Hey guys
I am going to upgrade my desktop and I was wondering about adding another graphic card next to the one I own .I currently have MSI GTX 660 ti/2GB/PE/OC and I want to SLI it with EVGA GTX 660 ti/FTW/3GB/w-Backplate .What do you think about two GTX 660 ti's working together ? I play on 23 inch monitor so my games are 1080p .I saw some reviews and the GTX 660 ti SLI can be compared with the titan in some games like crysis 3 , metro last light , and metro 2033 ..some hardcore games . I also want to take some opinions about the i7-4770K and ASUS MAXIMUS VI HERO MOBO. I have AMD 965 BE and Gigabyte MOBO but this is old now and I want to make a nice rig. I know about the GTX 780 ti but I think it's made for 4K users to compete against R9 290x and since I am 1080p user I wont need it ....ohhh,I almost forgot. I also have Corsair AX850w Gold standard .Do you think it will be sufficient to the 2 GTX 660 ti's and the i7-4770k and the ASUS MAXIMUS VI HERO MOBO?

Yes more than enough for your needs, but I suggest you get another 2gb version of the gtx 660ti to avoid any incompatibilities. I7 4770k is a good choice, but you will be gaming only so I would suggest i5 4670k. But to be a little future proof get the i7 4770k.

there should be no incompatibility as both cards will use 2 gig frame buffers the extra ram will be ignored as soon as you apply the sl bridge and settings. if the cards run nativley at slightly different speeds they will work at the speed of the slowest. its always preferable to get a matching pair but as long as there the same basic gpu there should be no issues.

if you just gaming get the cheapest assus board as they all oc the same. the only difference across the range are the features. some support quick sync others dont but all oc exactly the same... not my words, thats direct from jj who works for asus.

1 other thing 4770k is pretty much pointless unless your gonna run 3 cards. if your just goona run 2 which is the optimal stick with i5, you will get the same performance for a fair bit less money... feel free to look up the benches...

The Maximus VI Hero is the cheapest among the Maximus socket 1150.I want to get this one specially for the" SupremeFX " .You are right the i5-4670k gives the same performance of the i7-4770k in gaming .Thanks :)
