2x GTX 950 vs 1x GTX 970

Postby eirik on Mon Feb 01, 2016 10:47 am

Hello everyone, I am wondering if I should buy 2 950 and sli, or 1 970. I am leaning towards the two 950's because it looks nicer when stacked up, but I am unsure about the 2gb vram. I am only going to be playing sports games (NBA 2K, PES).

TIA

If you're only going to play sports games, I'd go with just one 970 as some games have scaling issues. Also, what type of monitor will you play on? If only 1080P, then 970 is PLENTY.

Go 970. Less power consumption, and later on if you need to, you can get another one and SLI them.
Everything is a copy of a copy. Eventually, it distorts enough to look original.
