SLi?

Yeah as per header, am thinking of going back to running dual cards. As I play BF3 mostly, can anyone running SLi tell me if it's worth running two cards or not? Currently, I can only run graphics on low otherwise the game crashes all the time. Will the two cards let me run high detail or not?

I used to have good fps with my 480 but on close quarters ive toned everything done to medium (from Ultra) possibly there will be a patch to fix something?

guru3d has good articles/comparisons
but in particular

I can run at ultra but eventually it crashes.

I'm actually in process of re-installing windows as I've had another case of a windows update corrupting my PC. Hopefully I get back up and running easily and quickly.

Awesome. I hear they scale pretty close to 100% :D make sure you keep up to date with the latest drivers though, they always contain SLI tweaks and profiles.

I always update my nvidia drivers!

I am now running BF3 video settings in "Ultra" without crashing the game compared to running "Medium" settings with only one 670 and previously "Low" settings with a 590. The difference awesome. :crazy:
