What would be better?

A single Gigabyte GTX 760 4GB Windforce card or two Gigabyte GTX 650 Ti Boost 2GB Windforce cards?


Models and prices:
GTX 760
GV-N760OC-4GD rev. 2.0
282.23 €
2x GTX 650Ti Boost
GV-N65TBOC-2GD
137 € x2 = 274 €
1x GTX 660
GV-N660OC-2GD
160 € x2 = 320 €

dual GTX 650Ti boost is defiantly faster, but is it worth having all the problems that SLI brings,no. Stick to 1 fast single GPU to get best performance without all the SLI hassles and compatability with games, if the game doesn't support SLI you are using a single GTX 650Ti Boost. Get the GTX 760.

But what about 2 660s?

GV-N660OC-2GD
160 € per GPU.

Also, what SLI bridge should I get?

A regular SLI bridge would cost me 3 €, but a EVGA Pro SLI Bridge would cost me 28 €.
Is there any performance diffrence?

two GTX 660 will do much better then the 760, but the price would also be quite a bit more, In my option two GTX 660 would be my pick over 1 GTX 760, By quite a bit actually. Your motherboard, if it supports SLI should already come with a bridge but not always. What is your motherboard just to check if I am making you a recommendation that will work.

There is no difference at all between the EVGA Pro SLI bridge vs the regular, especially the price difference, just stick to the regular.

A single 4GB 760 is 282.23 €, but two 2GB 660s would cost me 304€.
The motherboard is a Gigabyte GA-990FX-UD3 and it works, I'm 100% sure.

then get two GTX 660's, that will be a titan setup with games that support SLI, which most popular games do.

most of those games support SLI, so two GTX 660's will blow a GTX 760 out of the water with ease.
