hey guys what do you guys think would be better to have a dual or a single GPU?
for now i have this asus gtx580 directcuII
but i'm leaning toward changing it to GIGABYTE GV-N680OC-2GD GeForce GTX 680 2GB 256-bit GDDR5 PCI Express 3.0 x16 HDCP Ready SLI Support Video Card
or should i just run a sli/crossfire but what whould be a good combo?
motherboard=Asus p9 x79 pro
GPU=======Asus gtx580 directcuII
RAM=======32gb corsair 4x4 gb X2 1600mhz
cpu cooling==corsair H60
PSU=======1200w cooler master silent pro
hard drive===hitachi 2tb 7200 rpm
case=======cooler master cosmo II ultra tower
keyboard===razer blackwidow ultimate
monitor====samsung 25.5" lcd
two 580s will out-preform a 680, even if it's an OCed 680...
That said, there are draw-backs to consider, such as two 580s will obviously vent more heat into your case, draw more power (that PSU's fine), and there's always the possibility of the dreaded micro-stutter. though I hear that's not so bad with Nvidia and the gtx5** series.
Overall, if you want raw performance, I would SLI with another 580. it's the cheaper route too
