which is better? two GTX 670s( clocked at 915MHz or one GTX 680( clocked at 1.20 GHz?

is it true that the VRAM doesn't add up when you SLI?

i'm gong to be doing 3dwork, video editing, and gaming.

Yes, Vram does not add together when you SLi but two 670's will best a single 680 in games that support SLi and will give you a higher PPD if used for F@H.

Ok Thanks for the help. But if I play games that do not support SLi and i'm going to be doing video Editng should I go for the GTX680?

Just throwing this out there, even a single 670 is a MUCH smarter option than a 680.

A 680 is about 5% faster than a 670. (2-3% after overclocking both cards.)

At the same time, it's 25-30% more expensive.

That's just a bad purchase, especially when you consider that both cards will max out basically any game out there, why would you waste the extra $100-150?

Yes, Sli will likely be of use for video editing.
