I'd recommend just going straight for a brand new GPU instead of doing SLI. The 780ti has a lot of life left, and should easily sell for several hundred on any number of used hardware sites. If you were to put that towards either Pascal or Polaris, you could move up to a current-generation enthusiast card.Neutral Smith wrote:* Second graphics card for SLI, new series comes in December I thought, so prices will drop.
I'm not hating on SLI, but I've been running it for years, and I've had enough experience with it to understand all the drawbacks you need to endure. The only time that doing SLI makes practical sense is if you plan to use multiple, current-generation, enthusiast cards (something like 980ti, Titan, Fury X, etc) to power high-resolution, high-refresh rate displays. Save yourself the headache of driver issues, power draw, heat generation, broken SLI in games, stuttering, screen tearing (you get the idea) and just move to a single, better GPU.
