Default Re: Questions on running 2 GTX 570's in SLI?

Thank you, but if you read my specs. You'll see that my motherboard is a EVGA 780i FTW and that does not support Crossfire! So my only option is the GTX 570's, I am not going to buy another motherboard or two GTX 580's just to much money me this year.

Even my GTX 580s seem to be cutting it close at 5760x1080 with 1.5GB of VRAM with certain games, so I think that the 1.2GB of VRAM on the 570 would just barely not be enough. The 2GB on the 6950/6970 would give you a lot more breathing room, and their performance is no slouch either, especially scaling in Crossfire.
