I was thinking of running 2 EVGA GeForce GTX 550 Ti Superclocked 1024MB in SLI. Thay are priced at $130 a piece.
I'm just looking for suggestions for alternatives in this price range, and I would like to use Nvidia Cards in SLI.
As an alternative, spend $260 on a single good card. If this is a new rig, you will also spend less by not needing a sli capable motherboard, or a stronger psu.
The main reason is that sli of low end cards is more prone to microstuttering. Even though benchmark FPS numbers may be higher, the annoyance factor is also higher.
