Okay I bought two Asus GTX680'S 2GDDR5 and To be Honest I wasnt very Happy With the fps's That I was getting. Today I took 1 of my 680's out and I ran BF3 on the New maps Armored kill and my FPS wasnt going below 45. Plus I ran World of tanks I was getting 60+ I never get that using SLI. I bought these Both for £465 on Ebuyer For the prices I paid I was expecting good quality. Now im using drivers ( 301.42 ) I would also like to say BF3 loaded 10x faster without SLI wtf, Ive never used SLI before so This might be noraml I dunno, Because these 2 Cards are My first Nvidia GPU's. I had the Asus 6950 Direct CUII 2GDDR5, I play loads of other Games Like Need for speed the run/ Hot putsuit Batman, FIFA 12 ect. But is this normal for SLI to be so *** or is this Just me. ??? Thanks if anyone can help if not I will just have to sell 1 or both and Just get the Asus gtx690 1 GPU ........................... Here's a Picture

Yeah with SLI you just have to be more careful about keeping your drivers up to date... drivers affect performance much more in a multi-GPU setup than they do with a single card.

That would be two GPU's on one PCB, SLi on a stick so to speak. :whistle:
