  4. so i am wondering am i just wasting valuable power for 2 cards
    im going to want to play black ops and should i keep this setup or got to a dual gpu single card
  5. Antec 1000 quad rail and liquid cooled i7
  6. Sorry they are Ati radeon 5770hd x2
  7. That brings it down to just the budget. I'm running a pair of 5870's in xfire and if the budget was there, I'd jump to the gtx690. It being, basically, a dual 680, you have the option of getting another 690 later for a quad sli.
  8. are you hitting 60fps i hit
    44fps on far cry 2 i wouldn't have thought 800mhz v 875mhz would make that much of a diff it maby time to overclock to 900mhz
    gtx690@1200.00$ no wonder we have ps3's
  9. GeForce GTX 680 2GB nVidia GeForce GTX 680 Chipset (1006Mhz) 2GB GDDR5 (6008Mhz) Dual Display DVI/HDMI/Display Port PCI-Express 3.0 Graphics Card
    under 600.00 has got me thinking UPGRADE lol
