Will the SLI make MUCH difference in render time? Wouldn't it be better with the money of the graphic cards he get a i7 3970X Extreme Edition? Which way (SLI or i7-3970X) do you think would he get a better render performance? g-unit1111 a c 240 4 Gaming a b C Monitor June 4, 2013 10:14:12 AM Knock off the personal attacks or bans will be issued.
