Should i get 2x GTX 560s non ti or a GTX 670?

Should i get 2x GTX 560s non ti or a GTX 670? Heat and power consumption are not a problem. I found a pretty good deal with the GTX 560s and i want to know if i get more performance then a single GTX 670? Thank you.

    330USD for one (pretty nice where i live)
  3. One GTX 560 is 330? and you're thinking of doing SLI so 660?
    Cause one GTX 670 is 360 for 2GB and ~440 for 4GB...
    I would just go with GTX 670 because it's cheaper.. and faster
  4. Also, when you need more power, you can add another 670 on top of it.
  5. No, in every case I (as well as others) will recommend a single powerful GPU versus 2 less powerful GPUs, even if they are faster in SLI /Crossfire. This is due to SLI/Crossfire instabilities in games when the drivers aren't properly coded for that purpose. Also, (not affecting you) there is more heat and a higher amount of power consumption.

    Two GTX 650Ti's are able to out-perform a GTX 580, but a GTX 670 can do that on its own. Since you are talking about to GTX 560s, then a GTX 670 will definitely out-perform the 2 cards in SLI.

    Take a look at these:

    http://www.anandtech.com/bench/GPU12/372 (I would compare it with the GTX 580)

    *EDIT: I was looking at the posts above, and they are right, one GTX 670 is also cheaper.
  6. hey,

    Personally I would get a gtx670. If you mean $330 for one gtx560 then I would definitely not go with that. A gtx670 is $~370 depending on where you live. Two gtx560s may offer the same a bit better performance in a game or two, but you could encounter driver issues, scaling issues, micro-stuttering, and a bunch of other potential problems. So overall you could very well get lower performance with to gtx560's. A gtx670 is a very good card and it should handle any game you throw at it at more or less Max settings. Also in the future you could just add another gtx670.

    Hope this helps!

    Umm.....dude
    I don't live in america or anywhere near.
    I live in albania and prices are like 10 times bigger so a gtx 670 here is 810 usd (600EUROS)

    Honestly, you are still going to get a better deal with the GTX 670 in terms of performance. Plus, you won't have to worry about driver issues causing micro-studdering, or low FPS in games (I'm assuming you want this to play games and not any other form of professional use). And I'm not sure how much this will affect the price, but can you order from a US store, then pay the shipping and duties?

    http://us.ncix.com/ They do international shipping, so take a look.
  9. You got to be kidding me!!!! NCIX does international shipping?! I didn't know that, well gotta look that up, maybe i buy a GTX 680.....:D

    Yeah, for about a month now! Take a look and all the best with your new card!

    *EDIT: Keep in mind, international shipping is only available through the Canadian store, so head to http://ncix.com instead

    Thank you but the shipping is probably going to take a while, man it's a long ''road''
