Video Editing and Encoding - 680Gtx Sli vs single card & Quick Sync

Greetings! :hello:

What do you guys think is better for Video Editing/encoding?

Single 2gb 680 GTX with Quick Sync enabled or 2 680s Sli

I use Power Director 11 (I think CyberLink was going to take advantage of NVENC on PowerDirector 11, but I'm not sure if it's working yet)

I also read that Quick Sync + Single card might be faster, but less quality than 2 sli cards?

I use my Pc for gaming too and my system specs are I7 3770k, 16gb Ram, SSD Samsung 830 512gb and a 3tb barracuda.


Any advice would be really appreciated,

thank you. :)
