Dual or Quad SLI graphics for a game like battlefield
 
if you were to use a card from the Geforce 6 to 9 series and set it up in dual or quad sli for battle field 3, which would it be?

im asking this because im thinking of doing that on the core i5.

If you're gaming on a single monitor of any size, a single 670 will suffice.

If you're gaming on triple monitors of any size, dual 670s or 680s.

You don't need quad SLI for anything other than ePeen. Which is fine, if you have the money, btw...

Depends on the resolution... 1920x1080 I would go with a single GTX 670, 2560x1440 I would go with a single GTX 680 (maybe dual 670's if I had a 120hz monitor) and 5760x1080 or 1200 I would go with 2 680's.

I think the question was about 6000-9000 series.

I'd probably think about 9800GTX's, maybe dual 9800GX2's.

I'm still not sure if this guy's threads are serious or spam.

GAK, it is really hard to give a great answer without knowing the resolution. That said I completely agree with JJThomp. I run 2560X1440 with a single 670 and IMO if BF3 was a game I wanted to spend a lot of time on I would buy another 670. One is just not enough IMHO.

If this is the case I probably wouldn't go quad SLI at all because the driver support will probably not be the greatest. Also even in SLI the scaling is pretty bad on anything other than 9000's so I would probably not use any of them for BF3.

I think arinoth ran 2 9800gx2's and tried playing BF3, he didn't succeed very well.

I'm not saying it's a good idea, just that if I was going to try quad SLI with older cards that I would get the fastest ones I could.

i believe i should have said

"nvidia Geforce 6000 series graphics cards to Nvidia Geforce 9000 series graphics cards"

i am getting the 670. i just had a dumb idea of using older cards when i got a job. < that i should have also said in the first place.

i was expecting you guys to know this....guess i was wrong


sorry for the confusion. and i think i might use DUAL Geforce 9800gx2 graphics cards...unless i can set up QUAD physical 9800gx2s in SLI mode.

2 9800GX2 = quad SLI, so no you can't.
