Ok, so I know the 670 (2gb) sli will destroy the single 780 (3gb) performance wise but I'm still in doubt. I built a new pc a little while ago but wanted to wait with buying a new gpu till I had some more money, so my pc is only running on a gtx460 atm.

So while the cost is about the same, in like a year or 2, when the price of 780 has dropped a little, I could add another 780 then which would obviously beat 670 sli.

Also, my 850W power supply should have no problem pulling off sli right?

I know this question has been asked a few times but I wanted to make sure what to do in my situation.

btw: I run my games at 2048x1152 resolution. Could potentially also be higher in a year or 2.

I wouldnt touch a 670 now that the 760 is a step below it and 249 dollars. IMO if youre thinking SLI. 760 SLI will be a fps slower then a GTX 690

Any clue as to when the 760 is going to be out and about? As you can see my 460 isn't really cutting it nowadays when it comes to the more graphical intense games :p

If the 760 is basically replacing the 660Ti and the 690 is basically 680s SLI, then you are saying 760 SLI would only be slightly slower then 680s SLI? From what I have read thus far on the 760 they are not even the equal of a 670. I must be confused here on something perhaps..

Sli scaling is very nice.

In the end I would get a 780 and be done with it. If you start off SLI your only path from there is tri-SLI or replace the cards. Yet many people here say to go SLI from the start, it just seems to me anyway that doing this limits future upgrades, have never read anywhere that tri-SLI scales well on anything really. The new GTX cards are indeed SLI rock stars and very nice bang for the buck.

That's indeed kinda what I was thinking and why I was leaning towards the 780.

Here's how i think of it as i just went TRI SLI from the start with 760's. For 750 dollars there isnt a single card that will be able to touch the performance of 3 760's. I'm actually hoping these cards can do Quad SLI so i can addd another down the road :lol:

That's cool, I would guess you get some outstanding performance out of them. But I would not want to even run tri-SLI set up in my rigs, if 2 can't get the job done it is time for a new card. But that's just me of course, I don't like to deliver that much power to just my graphics, 3 760s would be around 450W right? And the heat/noise would be adverse to my thinking also. I am not suggesting either one of us is right or wrong here, we are not discussing obvious performance any longer, just personal preference.

Also the inherent increased chance of hardware/driver problems associated with that many cards, just more stuff to chance something breaking on them, I guess I am old school in that "less drives simplicity is sometimes better".

Have you ever checked out how you would stack up against 2 GTX 770s?

In BF3 a pair of 770's will be 21.8% faster then a pair of 760's. I have no idea how well the 3rd 760 will scale so i cant make any predictions but it should solidly beat a pair of 770's for less money
