Hello, Hi gonna sli two gigabyte gtx 670's on my motherboard=GA-990xa-ud3, 16gb hyper x memory 1600mhz ?, XFX PRO Series 750W core edition psu processor= amd FX 8150
i'll insert graphic card and sli connection, Question is what sort of problems or programs etc will i need, i'm pretty sure i would not but it's worth asking

  1. Why are you going to pair up 2 670 gtx's with an AMD 8150? that CPU will bottleneck the cards...
  2. the 8150 is a 8 core and runs at 3.6 ghz you sure?
  3. Ok question is then why would the fx 8150 8 core 3.6 boosts to 4.2 ghz bottleneck two gtx 670's in sli ???????????

    the fx will bottleneck it for sure, although it has 8 cores (not really cores but amd's hyperthreading) it still loses to like say an i5 because of it cpu architecture and IPC if you wan an amd machine you can get the new fx 8350 and overclock it but i think it might botleneck

    Ahhh ok, then would the best idea be at the moment of getting the gtx 690 as i have a gtx 670 and was going to buy the other card?????????
  6. it'll be fine running them in SLI.
  7. who's bloody well correct on this thread getting two different opinions now???????
  8. I reckon you'll be fine.
  9. Hmmm that's 2-1 in favour of sli 670's with fx 8150, But does any one know for sure maybe an expert lol
  10. It will bottleneck in CPU intensive games. Hell it even bottlenecks a single 670 a lot of times.

    But could that be because your only using 4gb ran ?????
  12. Um, OC ur CPU to like 4.8Ghz, and it will only bottleneck a little. lol.
    AMD's CPU architecture is nothing compared to Intel's.
  13. 4.8GHZ OC on an AMD is a disaster waiting to happen. ur better off getting one 670 and a better CPU
  14. Well i thought bottle necking was for older processor's, from when intel had huge problems, with all the new tech i was led to believe it's a thing of the past ????????
