GeForce GTX 660 SLI Game Requirement Analysis

GeForce GTX 660 SLI is a solution of two GeForce GTX 660 put together using NVIDIA'S SLI technology.
SLI relies a lot on proper driver support and may cause micro stuttering in FPS below 30. This means this combination might even perform worse than a single GTX 660.
The optimal performance it delivers is largely better than a single GeForce GTX 680.
Therefore, this combination is sufficient for gaming at 1080p and most demanding games can be played at the highest settings.

The specs say yes, but when it comes to actual performance the 780 will almost always outperform SLI 660s. Also, GD specs for some reason add the memory (VRAM) of the cards in SLI, but you don't. A single 660 has 2gb, 3x SLI 660s still only have 2gb because each of them is processing the same information internally. And pricing should be close enough, I can get a pair of ASUS 660s for about 475$, while the 780 is around 550$. Until the 790 cards are released, the 780s are basically the best nVidia cards out there. A 780 can stand up against a Titan for nearly half the cost.

Kinda figured as much. As with all SLI setups, a single powerful card with similar specs will pretty much always be the better choice. Less power drain (usually), lower heat production, and none of the basic processing issues SLI can run into. And of course not all games have good support, or even any support for SLI.

and the gtx 770 is cheaper in the UK, 2x gtx 660 is around £290, and 1 gtx 770 can be as cheap as £240, it's really a no-brainer

Same here in Canada, our pricing seems roughly even. I'm actually kinda pissed that I got my GPU when I did, if I had been smart enough to look up what was coming I would have seen the 780 was on the way and I would have been patient. A few weeks ago it sold for 440$, today it's 80$ cheaper. But what really annoys me is that the ASUS GTX 780 is only 540$. But that's life I guess, I still probably shouldn't complain. It's likely I can max most everything for a couple years, and my rig overall still has lots of upgrade room…Maybe the 800 series will be out by the time I want to do so.

your rig is a beast, I can't wait to see the maxwell series. I bet the graphics cards will be as power efficient as high end intel CPU (like the 3970x)

It's only slightly-beastly, and that won't really last very long I don't think. For example, there's nothing I can't max at 1080p, but we're already seeing 4k, which makes my rig seriously inferior again. I think we're still a few years from 4k being the standard, or even affordable, so I'm ok I guess. The thing I like with my setup is that it's very very expandable. Huge case with lots of room, PCI & USB 3.0 motherboard, 2 more slots for GPU, current-gen Intel socket & motherboard chipset, etc..
Upgrading will be easy, but probably expensive :/

I find 4k useless, it doesn't really add any more quality to the image, it just drops your framerate, I like 1080, and I think it will stick, people are still playing at lower resolutions like 1600x900 etc

Largely misranked, displays that it is more powerful than HD 7970 in Crossfire.

WHOA! Major OC on that CPU! Doesn't your PC get really toasty?

Can't figure out why anyone would bother with a 40% OC on a 3570. With the steps needed to keep it cool, and the general risk associated with OCing to that degree, you would be far far better off to get an i7 3770k and go from there. Comparing their base values, the i7 destroys the i5 in every possible way. You also wouldn't need anywhere near that level of OC for anything.

My 3570k is around 20% overclocked and im using a Noctuna NH-D14 + 3 diffrent intake fans, and 2 exhaust fans + a hommade 140mm top fan.
And i got (lowest core):
IDLE: 14-22 degrees
FULL LOAD: 55-65 degrees
I dont even wanna know what this guy is using.. a reverse airplane fan? Liquid nitrogen? :P Cuz the difference between 20 and 40% is HUGE!
