I am wondering if I am able to get a performance increase with a single, su b $300, single card. Only gaming playing swtor, wow, and skyrim and also probably mass effect.

i5 2500k
Gigabyte GA-Z68a-UD3H-B3
8gb 1600 gskill ripjaws x
750w ocz psu
H80 cooler
Antec 900
Corsair force gt 120 ssd

Wait for kepler. When 2 GTX 285's, that won't be much of a problem. Kepler should be here in about 2-3 months. then you will be able to get 1 of the Mid range cards for about 300$ that will be pretty epic. the new GTX 660 or 660ti is supposed to be same specs as the old 580. and with updated cuda. Epic bargain

I'll try and do that then. Just hard when every other component is brand new

For $300 right now you won't be getting an upgrade.

Thats kinda what I figured. Just been seeing crappy performance lately from the SLI setup. Could be the games tho too.
