    One GTX 670 or SLI 560 Ti's

    Just wanted to check in on a future build and see what the thoughts are on either running one GTX 670 or SLI 560 Ti's?
    Pricing would be about the same either way too is looks like on Newegg.
    thanks for all your thoughts!

    Go for the single gtx 670. According to benchmarks it performs better than sli 560's, and it uses less power, creates less heat and is quieter. On top of that if you want to you can buy a second for sli down the road

    That,s an easy decision, the 670, I would suggest purchasing one of the models that is on a full 680 size board, the ASUS DCII's look like a great card, if they perform anything like the 680DC2T you will be very satisfied.
