define overpower? I'm a big fan of better single cards over multiple lower cards. More parts equals more points of failure.

Go for the GTX650 for the increase in memory bandwidth alone. If I'm not mistaken, the GT630 uses DDR3 memory, while the 650 will use GDDR5

You can't SLI GT 630s.

great_big_abyss November 30, 2012 02:02 PM

I think you can. They SLI through the PCI-e slot. Correct me if I'm wrong, though.

Oops, colour me crazy, SLI is clearly NOT supported on the GT630. My bad!

All the more reason to go with that GTX650. Or better yet, an HD7750.

I would also go 650 by your choices, but personally would pick a 7750 at the price point. Or a good sale on a 7770.

cause here is my build im looking to pick up friday and run sli for gaming and netflix streaming via my lg flatscreen 1080p tv.
i will use it for also listen to music via a surround reciever and maybe a few word processing and internet surfing.

i have the a case already:
cpu: i5-3470 3.2ghz $199.00
mobo: gigabyte GA-H77M D3H -$84.99
ram:patriot venon viper 3 4x 4g -$79.98
video card: 2 x hd radeon 7750s 1g ddr5-$199.98
hdd:: segate baricuda 1tb 7500 6g/s -$64.99
psu:cool master 500watts 8080plus sli/crossfire-$45.25
total: $675.18
what can i change that wont affect performance but save me cash?? and makes a better gaming system going for more fps on high to max settings
