Talking Get a second 670 or go 760 sli

Title says it all. Resolution is 2560x1440. Looking to max out Borderlands 2 BF3 etc.. with all filters enabled. Would prefer to stick to the green team for physx + with all the frame rating issues currently plaguing the red team.



PS, and the upgrade bug just hit me

A second 670 no doubt! It outperforms the 760 by a reasonable margin so you'd be downgrading.

I will be running my 670 until I go SLI and even then I expect quite a few years out of them.

Get a 670.

^^ Not a doubt a 2nd 670.....! I'm still in the Evga Step up queue for a couple of 780's (for my 680 Classy's), but after a fair bit of gaming this last few weeks I think I'm going to be cancelling my Step up and hanging onto these 680's until next year (Maxwell)....

I'm running 670 sli at 1440. It's great and maxes out most games. Can't see myself upgrading until at least the 870
