I5 3570k + GTX 480sli? Tags: CPUs Gtx Intel i5 Last response: August 17, 2012 5:50 PM in CPUs Share wilsamacgilsa August 17, 2012 2:55:35 PM Hey all, Im currently running a single gtx 480 alongside a i5 3570k, if I were to add another gpu would the cpu be able to utilize it well enough to justify the cost? Basically is the 3570k powerful enough to not 'bottleneck' 2 gtx 480s in sli Cheers More about : 3570k gtx 480sli | E-mail me updates | Report abuse Register or log in to remove mauller07 August 17, 2012 4:18:18 PM The i5 3570k is plenty powerful enough, just make sure your running 64bit windows to take full advantage of SLI | Report abuse subasteve5800 August 17, 2012 4:38:59 PM And make sure your PSU can handle it. 480s are quite power hungry. | Report abuse Stickem August 17, 2012 4:39:28 PM What mauller07 said. | Report abuse Related ressources HD 7970 worthy upgrade from GTX 480? - Forum Upgrading advice /w i5 3570k + gtx 690 - Forum 500 power run a Nividia GTX 660 Ti & i5 3570K - Forum I5 3570k - 2 GTX 660 SC SLI - PSU help needed - Forum System Recomendations i5 3570k EVGA GTX 670 - Forum Ask the community Publish wilsamacgilsa August 17, 2012 4:41:11 PM TY guys, Im planning to upgrade to win 7 64bit before I add the gpu as well Again thank you for your time | Report abuse wilsamacgilsa August 17, 2012 5:27:46 PM subasteve5800 said:And make sure your PSU can handle it. 480s are quite power hungry.
