ASUS GTX660 SLI or something better?

Hello all,

I currently have the ability to buy another ASUS Direct CUII GTX 660 for around $150.00 to SLI with my current one on a Corsair CX600M PSU. I currently have a ASUS VN247H-P 23.6" 1080p monitor, as well as a 12" 480p monitor setup, and I will be upgrading to triple ASUS VN247H-P monitors soon. Would this 660 SLI be a smart choice or should I try and sell my current 660 and try to go for something more along the lines of a 780? Also, what would a 660 SLI beat or be equal to? As in, (pulling numbers out of the air here) a 660 SLI will give you a 30% performance increase compared to a 760? Thanks for any and all responses!

  1. I would try and sell to then upgrade to a 780. It is going to be really hard to push a triple monitor setup sli 660s. Getting a 780 would be a safer bet.

    Alright, thanks. By the way, I forgot to mention I will only be gaming on one screen, the other two will have other applications on them. Would that make it to where the 660 SLI could handle it, or would I still be better off trying to save money for the 780?

    Oh well in that case I would recommend that you just save for a 780 or you could even go with a 770 depending on your budget. If you are in the U.S. a 770 is going to run you about $300 a 780 is going to run you about $500. Let me know if you need any more help.

    Alright, thanks. I've been looking at this 780 as it goes on sale fairly frequently. http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16814130951&nm_mc=AFC-C8Junction&cm_mmc=AFC-C8Junction-_-na-_-na-_-na&cm_sp=&AID=10446076&PID=3938566&SID=

    However, it will be some time before I can get enough spending money for it (maybe 2-4 months), so it might go down even more in that time.
  5. A 780 is going to give you the best experience and "future proofing". A 780 will max out all the games you want. Enjoy

    Yea EVGA is a great brand. I am fairly positive that by the time you save up the money you will be able to find it for $460-$480 like you said.
