In order to avoid CPU bottlenecking with that system you need to be playing at high resolutions and/or multiple monitors. Also, you need to be sure that your motherboard is SLI certified. Just because it has two PCIex16 lanes does not mean that it is SLI certified. http://www.guru3d.com/article/geforce-gtx-580-review/7 http://www.guru3d.com/article/geforce-gtx-580-sli-revie... m 0 l sniper2606 November 15, 2010 4:23:07 PM damn ill have to look for bigger PSU. yeah my evga 680i is certified, i was running 460 sli before, thank you tho m 0 l Can't find your answer ?
