  1. Best answer
    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.
  3. 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?
  4. 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.
  6. then get two GTX 660's, that will be a titan setup with games that support SLI, which most popular games do.

    I dont have a mac, just some games came with mac versions.
  8. most of those games support SLI, so two GTX 660's will blow a GTX 760 out of the water with ease.
