Looking to pair a new video card with GeForce GTX 670 - input needed!

Hey everyone,

I am looking to pair a new video card with my current one (GeForce GTX 670 2GB) and would appreciate feedback. My desktop specs are:

-Intel® Core™ i7 3820 Processor (4x 3.60GHz/10MB L3 Cache) - Intel Core i7 3820
-Motherboard: Gigabyte GA-X79-UP4 -- 4x PCI-E 2.0 x16
-Memory 8 GB [2 GB X4] DDR3-1600 Memory Module - Corsair
-60 GB Corsair Force Series GT SSD - Single Card
-Hard Drive 2 TB HARD DRIVE -- 64M Cache, 7200rpm, 6.0Gb/s - Single Drive

The two cards that I am currently considering are:
-GeForce GTX 770: ($339)
-GeForce GTX 760: ($259)

Feedback on these two cards? Or, do you have any other ideas that might work better? Basically, I am looking to get my desktop ready for the next-gen games.

Thanks in advance,

Tom

  1. if I understand correctly, you want to sli your old 670 with those new cards?

    you cant pair those graphics card with a 670. you need another 670 or else it wont work.

    SLI can only be done with Identical cards (Identical gpus)
  2. you are going to need another 670 to run them in SLI
  3. Yep, 670 is your only choice......not a bad thing either, a pair of 670's in SLI will scream, especially at the typical 1080p display that most people utilize.
  4. Thanks to everyone for the quick response!! I am obviously a novice at all of this!

    In regards to pairing my current card sli with another GTX 670 - would this be a better option than running either of the other two that I posted above on their own?

    Again, the feedback is very much appreciated.
  5. Also, would the one posted below match?

    I originally purchased mine via ibuypower and it states that I ordered the...
    - 1 x Video Card NVIDIA GeForce GTX 670 - 2GB - EVGA FTW - Core: 1084MHz - Single Card
  6. You need a GTX 670.....not a 760.......won't work.

    This is the one you want: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16814130982 And getting a refurb'd is never a bad idea.....at least you know the card and been bench tested.

    $250 is a smoking price on it too.......Id scoop that one up ASAP.......used these still go for north of $300 with no warranty or return policy. Buying a refurb'd(bench tested) item from New Egg is ALWAYS a SMART move.

    Yep, but Id grab the IDENTICAL spec'd one from New Egg........only a few dollars more. Same brand, same clocking...........probably the one you should get.......you want mirror identical cards when possible.
  9. Good point - I will definitely be purchasing the one from New Egg - thanks again for all of your help - it really has been invaluable.
