So I got into PC gaming awhile ago and at the time i could only afford the GTX 660 SC by EVGA w/ 2Gb Dedicated RAM.
Now i was thinking of also picking up evolve on PC as well as on xbox (just because i want the competitive PC environment too).
Im the kind of person that sees video games as a form of art. I enjoy seeing every detail no matter how small in all its glory. I am saddened that my 660 isnt going to meet or excel in the high end of evolves specifications. That being said, Im not sure how to proceed not just for evolve but for the “next gen” era.
So the question here is. New Graphics card? or SLI? To be honest im not quite sure how SLI is advantageous over just buying a new card. I was looking around at the 700 series and i guess they are already a generation behind as the 900 series are starting to emerge. Im not sure if dropping a ton more money on a new GFX card is going to be worth my while if SLI-ing the same card (for cheaper) would solve the problems just the same?
And to my understanding a second card in SLI just takes the load off of the first card and shares it. I wouldnt be able to use it to display to a second monitor (already running dual screen) as all of the display output is through the primary (or first) card in SLI.
Would i see a significant boost to performance (excluding any bottle-necking) compared to a newer card?
Im hoping for answers of any sort i suppose. any time i ask a professional they always say they cant tell me shit unless they run diagnosis and get a hold of my PC and then ask me for money afterwards.
