I use DVI-D for over clocking. You can't really over clock with HDMI. It crashes at 50FPS.
Untrue,

SLI is a bad idea because almost no game ever works quite reliably with it.

Adding a second GPU if the same type isn't automatically 2x performance.

It's 100% more money for maybe 50% performance in 30% of games.

A new single GPU is always the best solution. A modern GTX 960 costs around $230 - $240, and provides superb performance in all modern (and future) titles on normal gaming resolutions. 4K, 3D or surround monitor gaming notwithstanding.

Single GTX 960:
- $235 average, $215 minimum
- 120 Watts maximum load power consumption
- Average of 55 FPS on Metro: Last Light benchmark at FullHD and max settings

Source:
Pricing:
EVGA GeForce GTX 960 04G-P4-3962-KR 4GB 128-Bit GDDR5 PCI Express 3.0 SLI Support Video Card - Newegg.com

Thermal and power:
GeForce GTX 960 | Specifications | GeForce

Benchmark:
Nvidia GeForce GTX 960 graphics card review: Maxwell meets PC gaming's sweet spot | PCWorld


2x GTX 760 SLi configuration:
- 2x $150 = $300 total
- 2X 170 Wats = 340 Watts total
- Average of 61 FPS on Metro: Last Light but with some settings turned down (Motion Blur and Tesselation at Normal, and no NV PhysX) = so that's somewhat equivalent performance

Source:
Pricing:
ZOTAC ZT-70401-10P G-SYNC Support GeForce GTX 760 2GB 256-Bit GDDR5 PCI Express 3.0 SLI Support Video Card - Newegg.com (cheapest one I can find)
Benchmark:
GeForce GTX 760 SLI review - DX11: Metro Last Light
Termals and power:
GeForce GTX 760 | Specifications | GeForce

So I'm paying $80 more and using 200 Watts of power (higher electricity bill) for equivalent performance if I'm using older SLI, instead of newer single GPU.

That's not "saving a lot of money" if you ask me, neither in short run nor long one.
It's simple really: New tech = better.

That is good advice. However dual of the same model actually works well. However I might consider that model.
What are your computer specs? Also this is the best deal I found.

Also check out the price of the Geforce Titan. xD

Which model do you have?

If it makes you feel any better, my gaming machine is still going by GTX 560 I picked up a Galaxy edition, 2GB memory model a while back. Still works good. I'd very much like to upgrade to GTX 960 by the end of next year, before next Mass Effect is out.

I think I have a 660. I forget, I use DVI-D for display. Its a great card. I am working on over clocking it. I think the 660 will play almost any game. It could run Cyrisis 3 with dual I think. Also do you have steam. If so what is your steam ID, I might friend you if you have it.

I haven't heard of your old tag. However I do assume the game it is from has combat or building, inventing. I do play, Minecraft, Terraria, CS:GO, CODAW, CODMW3, CODGHOSTS, GMOD, TF2. Computer Science is what I want to do for a living though. Wait just checked I was correct, the reference is a comes from a combat game. I do think I will check out that Mass Effect game though. Isn't that the reference you were talking about. It looks like a cool game...


I'm pretty sure that pro gamers play games for a living. See professional:engaged in a specified activity as one's main paid occupation rather than as a pastime. Although having a second source of reliable income isn't a bad idea. Once you get the chance to take some computer science courses you will get a feel for whether programming gives you the same excitement as games or the sense of accomplishment of plugging computer components into each other. I enjoy all three myself.

Welcome to the forums. Sorry to hear about your age and location confidentiality restrictions. I'm sure you'll be able to learn some interesting things here despite that.

I am on computers a lot when I am not a school. Does that count. Sometimes I freaking play on the computer for 12 hours strait.

I'd specify "pro gamers" as people who play games for a living, or are exceptionally good at it that they're considered among the best of the best. I wouldn't consider people who play a lot pro gamers, but rather hardcore gamers. I used to play a lot too, sometimes 16-17 hours a day. Sadly the games that I used to play haven't been as good lately and I have trouble finding any games that make me want to play them as much as I used to. I've been wanting a G-Sync monitor with 4K res for a while now, but I've had bad experiences with G-Sync monitors in the past. Every single one that I've tried either had a bunch of dead pixels, or uneven backlighting. So I guess I'll just have to wait a couple more years until G-Sync becomes somewhat of a standard in monitors.
