I currently am running two GTX 580 superclocked with a small overclock (900MHz gpu, 2150 mem) in 2d surround on 3 Dell 2412M in portrait. I'm looking for a SINGLE SLOT / LOW PROFILE card that I could use to power two other monitors that would be running League of Legends / streaming at maximum. Currently running a GTX 275 that was grandfathered in and its sapping power from my 580s running them like ***.
tl;dr - Need recommendations for low profile or single slot gpu, powerful enough to power 1080p x2 and be able to run League, TDP as low as possible.
I would just sell your GTX 580's and the 275 and that should pay for 2 GTX 670's 4GB cards that will have the VRAM needed to run surround view and would actually stomped your SLI 580's too while only using the energy of GTX 560 Ti's.
I can play BF3 on Ultra above 60+ FPS at 1080p. That's with VSYNC on as well.
Eh, in that case, I would not even bother wasting money on a new cheapo GPU unless you sell the GTX 275 first, then a GTX 560 with 2GB VRAM should be enough. Since you are running 2 more monitors with those games, you will need more graphics punch than any single slot card I can think off and will need 2 slots.
I was thinking of the GTX 560, as for the GTX 275 selling, thats 70$ and about a tank of gas that lasts me 5 days (9MPG 17 gal tank. Fuckin 645Ci drinks like a Hummer...) The problem / reason why I'm looking for a low profile or single slot card is that my 275s are blocking off my internal 3.0 headers.
The fact that you mentioned the 670s reminded me that the 680s and ect are FINALLY in a manageable supply and not getting scalped (ily forever amazon). Looking @ the 680 lightnings, might get them in sli and run this 1366 as a spare / backup / guest gamer. Anybody know a realistic TDP for MSI 680 lightning in sli?
