Hi All,

I'm looking at upgrading my rig in the next 2 weeks.
I'm not sure whether to buy the same card to use SLI, or buy a better card.

I'm not looking at spending a lot.

Interested in the Asus GTX 750 TI 2G
See the price list below (Australian $)
www.msy.com.au

My budget is around $150-$200 Australian $

My Specs are below:

i7-2600K
MB: ASUS 98z68-V GEN3 S1155
ASUS VGA GTX 560DC 1024MB
16GB DDR3 RAM
PS: 750W
Water Cooled
Currently running dual monitors, main is 27" running 1920 x 1080

Currently using it for gaming mostly, also a bit of video editing.
(Watch Dogs, BF4 and soon Far Cry 4)

So not sure if i should go SLI with the same card, or buy a better card.

If i buy a better card, can I run both cards at the same time?
Not SLI obviously.

Please let me know what you think is best.

Regards,

SLI is out on a card with 1gb of memory. I personally like the evga 750ti FTW. I love its efficiency. You would get better performance with a GTX 570, 660, 760. I am an Nvidia fanboy. But take a look at the AMD R7 260, 265, 270. They are offering a lot of bang for the buck. Whatever you decide, retire the 560.

Thanks Stark.
So you suggest I buy a new card and just run the 1 card, rather than run the old one as well?

You aren't going to see a whole lot of performance gains going from a 560 to a 750ti. The power efficiency is incredibly on the 750ti but in your case is of very little concern. Look at a gtx 760 or a r7 270/X or even r9 280.

I would spend a little more and get the 760 also. The 750 Ti is great, but not a huge performance boost over the 560.
