The title pretty much sums it up. Would you rather get two GTX 680's in SLI or one GTX 690?

2 680's the price is lower and the 680 is a little bit under the 690 and two would be insane so two 680's are the way to go

also 690 blows half of its hot air inside your case so 2x 680 causes lower temperature in your case

neither. id get a 670 for now and then when you need more performance, add another one. the performance difference between the 670 and 680 is not worth the 100 dollars. the 670 id get is the msi power edition. slightly cooler than the asus but it has overvolting that no other 670 has (unless using a ROG extreme board or a EVbot)

id go 690 if that is what you are looking for. it uses less power than 2 680s, it is more quieter, and with a decent case with good airflow, the 690 is cooler than 2 680s.

I'm not sure if you meant what you expressed, but a 680 is a lot slower than a 690, because a 690 IS two 680's in SLI, slightly under clocked.

I'd only go for the 690 if you may want to go with two in the future due to 3D Vision surround or something crazy like that.

I liked the idea of two 670s in SLI. $800, and OC'd I think they beat the 690 (as memory serves.)

I got 15,700+ in 3D Mark 11, and 150 fps in Dirt 3 with 670x2. Seems probably good enough for most games. What rez you going to run?
