Hello everyone :) 

I've been thinking about upgrading my 2 video cards in SLI to say 1 GTX 670. My cards are the Gigabyte GTX 560 Ti Super Overclocked editions & are running just fine, but they each have only 1gb of VRAM so I can't max everything out, but can in a good number of games. Was wondering if say getting a 2gb version of the GTX 670 will be a wise choice? & later down the road I can get another one to SLI for improvements.

I have a Corsair HX750 PSU & the rest of my system is in my sig, but will the HX750 be enough for 2 670's in SLI?

I figured as time goes by my 2 GTX 560 Ti's will be loosing value & I'd like to try & sell them on Ebay or CL while I can still get a good bit for them. Around how much would you think I can get for them?

Thank you in advance for all advice ;)

I would suggest you to wait for the Next-Gen cards releasing in Q2.

I've thought about waiting for the 700 series, but I ran into some extra money from the lottery & thought maybe I'll get a GTX 670 for the hell of it.

I see what you guys are saying though I did read a good number of past posts here on Toms about that 2 GTX 560 Ti's are a really great combination & are close to the performance of 1 GTX 670 & many posts I read noted that the 670 would be the better deal in the long run.

I do play on 1920x1080 & the games I can't max are Max Payne 3 (VRAM issue) & Battlefield 3

I haven't heard of the work around. Could you point it out?

Thanks I'll have to try that :) 

So would it be better to wait for the 700 series then? Or since I won over $300 on a lottery ticket go ahead & get a GTX 670 2gb version? Or by something else with my winnings & forget about the 670?

I can agree, but the problem is holding onto I'm some what a compulsive spender & I don't normally have this much in my pocket at one time. I'll take your advice though & do my best to hold onto it till the 700 series gets here.

Thank you much for all your help & advice ;)
