I am ready to update my old ring. The only thing that bothers me is witch gpu to choose.
I would like from your personal experience to give me help with my final decision. My budget is around 500EUR or 650USD.
As far as I can see 660ti sli beats the other two cards in benchmarks, but what about SLI problems (microshuttering, etc)? My monitor resolution is 1920x1080 and I am intrested in playing games mostly, in full graphic detail.
I believe that there are different frame latency times, since they have different frequencies and memory bus. This is from what I've read in different forums. I don't know a lot of things about SLI since I've never had one in my system.
Another question is about the drivers for games. If a game comes out do the two cards work or I will have to wait until a SLI profile to be released, so the second card will work?
In case of 2x680 if one card doesn't work isn't much of a deal, since the one by itself is a beast.
For the most part AAA titles support SLi/Xfire from the moment they release, there will always be exceptions of course which is why it's worth taking note of who the game is sponsored by. TWIMTBP is Nvidia so SLi will most likely be supported straight away, Xfire might not be and GITG is ATi/AMD so Xfire is likely to work and SLi might not.
