Curious about SLI on 560Ti

I recently got offered to be given another Nvidia GTX 560Ti from a friend. I'm curious if its worth doing SLI and possibly a 3 screen setup, or if its slightly a waste of time to SLI a 560Ti?

Specs for my system are
CPU: Phenom II X4 965 OC'd to 4.0ghz
Cooler: Corsair H60 push/pull
RAM: 8gb Kingston HyperX T1 1600Mhz (will be 16gb soon)
GPU: Single reference GTX560Ti OC'd 950mhz/2200mhz
Mobo: Asus M5A99X EVO
PSU: Thermaltake 850W
HD: Seagate 500gb 7200rpm
Monitor: Acer S230HL 1920x1080
Case: Antec 900

Most I would be playing is BF3, WoW, ToR, and Skyrim. Always thought a 3 screen setup would be a "cool" thing to have, but unsure if its capable on a 560Ti SLI rig.

Also if the 560Ti SLI cannot handle 3 screens, would it still be a performance upgrade to SLI with a single monitor?

What's ur res. I have gtx 560 ti at nearly same clock .I plan to sli too. Even if i will get a single monitor HD (cuz i have 3x 1280x1024)

The gtx 560ti SLI goes ahead of gtx 680. But selling that one and getting gtx 670/80 give's you option to upgrade.

So its up to ur budget :)

I don't recommend SLI or Crossfire because they still have issues. I always recommend getting the fastest single gpu you can afford. That said, if your card is not performing enough for you, sell it and get a newer, more powerful one.

Well my res is 1920x1080 for the single monitor. As far as budget I don't really have one, this was offered to me as free. The single 560Ti is performing quite well actually, still giving great fps in all games I play. Just getting it for free and wondering if its worth doing SLI and 3 screens.

Sli'd GTX560Ti's are pretty potent and I have had no issues in the year and a half that mine have been running.
