I'm looking to build my first pc. I'm going to be using the Asus P8 z77- V Pro mobo, with the Corsair Obsidian 650D case, and a GTX 680. This is where it gets tricky (or not so much so for anyone who knows something about computers). I'd prefer to get an Asus 680, and in the future add a second in SLI. If I get the Asus gtx 680 with CUII cooler, will there be enough space to put them in SLI? Will there be room for SLI and a sound card as well??
Yea I have. The 690 sounds like a BEAST, but it would be way more than I need right now. In the next few years I'll upgrade to dual monitors, plus an HD TV. By the time I need to SLI, the 680 should be relatively cheap, and I'll add a second.
Pretty sure that mobo has space to put DCUII cards in SLI.
Availability is the big question on this - can you actually find the DCUII 680 in stock at a not-crazy price?
Same deal with the 690... I bet that's sold out within 15 minutes of when it gets listed online.
well, Nvidia's binning 680 (already short in supply), to build their 690 (will be even shorter in supply)... I'm starting to feel more and more like GK104 cards will be a short lived legend. although they preform very well, AMD's Sea Islands series are set to release Q3 this year I believe, at which point most of us believe Nvidia will have their GK110 card ready (big maybe?)... and they who knows where producing 680s will be on their list of priorities...
To answer your question, I agree with BigMack, that board definately has enough space to handle an extra DCUII
Okay awesome guys. Thanks a lot. Like you said, now the only problem is to try and get one. NCIX.ca has them at an awesome price, but there are none in stock. Only hope is to order and hope it doesn't take 8 months to get here.
