Hi,

Am putting together a new build and am wondering about which card to go for, currently I am thinking of running two of these in SLI:

http://pcpartpicker.com/uk/part/asus-video-card-gtx670d...

Based on reviews and benchmarks it seems a solid card (Btw am hoping to run games like battlefield over 3 monitors on ultra?) My only concern is the size of them, taking up two slots - looking long-term, when it becomes time to upgrade I would like to be able to put in a third (or even 4th card) rather than invest in new cards - can anyone tell me if that's likely to work? (Obviously with a different card)

Advice appreciate in which route to take, if anyone has any other card then can recommend that would be great :)

UK - currently at £2200 for full build (With monitors ect), can go higher, just means need to wait a little longer and get some more cash together :)  (Could potentially buy 1 GPU to start and then invest in a second shortly after)
