Hi all, I currently have an EVGA GTX 560 ti 448 and am wondering if i should get another for sli or just sell it and get a 7XX series card. I current have two 17inch 1280x1024 monitors. I have i5 3570k on the MSI z77a-g45 board. I have 750 watt PSU.

Thanks in advance people. I use it for rendering in blender and gaming. I might want to try surround if i get a third monitor. I read that the 5XX cuda performance is better than the 7XX cuda perforamce so thats why I am unsure about getting a new card. Also, will the VRAM run out If I try to use surround?

I would probably go for something a little newer like the 700 series cards. I think when people talk about 5XX cuda performance being better than 7XX cuda performance they mean per cuda core in which case it is definitely true. However 700 series cards have a lot more cuda cores (1152 for the GTX 760) far greater efficiency, support for shadowplay and G-sync and larger frame buffers (VRAM).
Speaking of which, if you upgrade to a 3rd monitor of the same resolution you'll have a higher pixel count that a 1440p monitor. At which point you need more than 2GB of VRAM for games to run well, so consider 4GB cards (or even the 780's 3GB if that is within your budget).

Thanks... I like the 5XX card because of the limited edition aspect but thanks for your opinion. I will look into a 7XX card. I use XX as a placeholder because I am unsure if it will be a 760 or 770. Thanks for everyone's time.
