Video Card Upgrade

Hi guys, I currently have a GTX 560ti and I have had it for a year now. I was wondering, do you think it would make more sense to buy another one to put them in SLi or should I buy a whole new video card thats better. I know the 660ti is coming out soon and idk if I should wait.

  1. Don't go SLI if you don't want headaches. Maybe you should wait for a year. Your card is still powerful.
  2. Ya I was thinking that to. But I'm curious, what headaches?

    If a single card will do the job, I think that is the way to go.

    SLI synthetic benchmarks will look wonderful, but

    If you went to sli, would you need to change to a sli capable motherboard?
    Is your case prepared for increased cooling load?
    Is your psu at least 700w?

    If you need more graphics power, make the upgrade a significant one.
    Otherwise, you may be disappointed if you don't see a big improvement.
    Your GTX560ti is a very good card. I think you should be looking at something like a GTX670.
    Possibly the upcoming GTX660 will be very strong, and may well do the job.
    We will see soon.
  4. I have an Asus P8Z68-v. So yes I am capable of SLi.
    I have a Cooler Master HAF X.
    I have a 900W power supply.

    Ya I'm thinking of waiting for the 660ti but someone told me that the Kepler cards were too new and that I need to wait for them to be optimized. Idk what that means. But I might even go for the 670 in the next 9 months or year maybe.
