Hi peeps,

Current gaming system playing skyrim, total war series, Wargame E.E. @1080p nicely

i5-750@3.8
4x4 mushkin@1900
128GB SSD
EVGA gtx570
EVGA p55-ftw200 mobo
Enermax 920watt psu
Silverstone RV-02
and some other doodads

It does everything I need, but would it be reasonable to drop in a second 570 for sli or would my older i5 become a bottleneck @1080p? I'd like to be able to crank the AA since its a 27" 1080p monitor.

I don't want to upgrade the whole system at this time, and i think an extra 570 might be less of a hassle then selling my current one and buying a better card with that money.

Plus, I've been wanting to use this board's extra PCI-e lanes (nf200 chip) for some time, and I know my psu and chassis cooling are up to the job. Not planning on OC'ing the card(s).

Thoughts?
