hey everyone,
I have been umming and ahing about what to buy for ages now
had lots of really really helpful insights from Toms already
but now I have seen a brilliant offer.
basically, should I choose 2xgainward 560ti's
or 1 gtx 570 phantom
I am using my pc pretty much for gaming 1st person shooters and
3d is a huge factor for me.
Thanks everyone

personally i always go for the one higher end card rather than sli/crossfire

no worries about driver issues,sli support in games or micro stuttering etc

Yeah I think thats the way I am leaning to be honest.
Didnt realize just how many amps they needed! dont really want
to have all that extra juice being used when im on an electric
meter and game extensively!

Would still take a lot more power than the single solution though :(
