Two NVIDIA GPU's = SLI

Bulldozer

Sandulf29

Yep, but there's also Tri and Quad SLI as well, though that's an abusrd amount of power unless you game at 2560x1600.>.>

2, 3 or 4 Radeon GPUs equal Crossfire of course.

That is indeed insane. Only people I can imagine using it are those who design cars or buildings on CAD softwares

[QUOTE="PolskaKing"][QUOTE="julian_jr"]I have no idea how good that is. ^PolskaKing

I will assume very good.

3 reasons why I want it:

1. Price

2. SLI and Crossfire

3. Bulldozer support

 

...I don't know what any of that means except for price. :P

SLI/Crossfire means the ability to use two separate graphic cards to work together. What the hell is bulldozer support?

I provided a link above for Bulldozer. They are new generation of AMD procesor, apparently with 10 cores :o

Bulldozer is the next AMD cpu that comes out in as late as September and will take on Intel's Sandy Bridge cpus in price and performance.

That's Enhanced Bulldozer codenamed Piledriver actually, the Bulldozer cpus that come out this year goes up to 8 cores.

Yep, though it's about time AMD actually tries to compete against Intel in power this time like they did in 2003 and all the way up to 2006 when Intel continued to beat them every year since Intel Core 2 Duo. From my understandings Bulldozer will take on Sandy Bridge and I'm guessing Piledriver will go after the higher end Intel cpus on the market but I'm not too sure about Ivy Bridge yet.

May be buying a monitor. A friend of mine is selling a $300 monitor for $110, trying to convince him to sell it to me for $50 since no one wants to buy it.

If it actually happens, I'll be all smiles. :D

Just ordered this for 124.99:

This will be my 2nd GTX 460 this year, plus looks to have much better overclocking than my current.

After doing some research, it turns out that 2 GTX 460s consume over 400 watts in SLI, and over 500 watts when overclocked and I have a 550 watt power supply, looks like I need a 650-750 watt to be safe.

^that

And this:

You bought the exact same thing as mitu?
#229 Posted by mitu123 (153911 posts) -

You bought the exact same thing as mitu?lancelot200
This one is a different brand and a better version of my current, plus I'm doing it for SLI so I can use both at the same time and get over double the amount of power and performance on games. For example as in Mafia II, 1 GTX 460 can get 30-60 FPS consistently but 2 GTX 460s can do 90-130FPS consistently.

Previous was a PNY GTX 460, this is a MSI N GTX 460, using both will make my PC even stronger than before.

And mine only has 2.. It's a laptop though. I wonder how many cores the next gen consoles will have. Maybe 10 cores plus 2 for GPU?

I don't think that would happen, no console is getting 10 cores next gen, imagine how expensive that would be. I can see 4 at least, maybe 6, 8 has a chance but low, but no 10 cores.:P
