My PC has an Asus M4A88T-M/USB3 motherboard, ENGTX560 TI 448 DC2 GeForce GTX TI 1.2GB PCI-E w/ Dual DVI, HDMI, DisplayPort graphics card, 8GB of RAM, AMD Phenom II X2 560 Processor 3.30GHz and 600W power supply. I have a BenQ
GL2030 20in Widescreen LED LCD monitor and I'm thinking of getting another one. My questions are:
Would 2 GTX 560 TI's be overboard?
Would I need another motherboard if I do get another monitor?
Any input would be greatly appreciated and recommendations would be great too.
^ok that will do great.
i believe you will see a performance difference while gaming by upgrading your CPU.
it will not be "cost effective" to upgrade that motherboard and get another clostly 560ti448 to SLI while you have a PIIx2
a motherboard i suggested PCI Express 2 (x16, x8) <--- what you need to SLI
and add in a PIIx4 955 because really a dual core just won't make it; so before you even get another 560ti448 that is going to cost $190. the cheapest 560ti448 i found was: GIGABYTE GV-N560448-13I GeForce GTX 560 Ti - 448 Cores $269.99
$249.99 after mail-in rebate card
for a total of $440
now you may forgo the CPU now and see how bad the system bottlenecks with picking up the mobo and 560ti448. which will make it $340.
