Is getting an SLI-supporting mobo worth getting 2 GTS 450s?
Dec 2, 2012, 3:50 PM
Here is my current build:
ASUS M4A88T-M mobo
Nvidia GTS 450 GPU
4 GB Patriot Sector 5 Edition RAM
Antec BP550 550W PSU
AMD Phenom II X4 925 Quad-Core CPU @ 2.8 GHz
I have a couple upgrade options, and I have no idea which one would be the best for me.
Here they are:
1. Buy a friend's old GTS 450 for $10 and a motherboard that supports so SLI so I can use my current 450 and his 450 in SLI.
2. Upgrade to a different card, maybe the GTX 560 or an HD 7850.
Which upgrade option is the best?

Oh and go for the HD 7850 if you can afford, if you live in US you get a free game!
The HD 7850 will be far better than GTS 450 in SLI.
