Hi
I have the following config (highlights...):
I7 990x
Asus GTX 590
Samsung 840 pro
Corsair Dominator GT 12GB (3x4GB) DDR3 2000 MHz
Rampage III Formula
Dell U3011

I was wondering how can I get a bit more performance on the graphics side...while saving the 590 which is still a pretty good card. However, I have performance issues when playing the most recent games (@ 2560 X 1600....bear in mind the 590 was purchased in 2011...). An option I thought of was to add a GTX 580 and run in SLI with the 590. Is this technically possible? are there any other ideas? though I realize that this setup would require to throw in a new PSU...

Thanks in advance

Graphics cards must be the same GPU with the same amount of memory to run SLI. And the GTX 590 should handle most games just fine at 2560x1600, unless "performance issues" is "anything below 45FPS".

thanks for replying. The issue is when playing Crysis 3, I had to lower some setting (AA is off), otherwise it gets choppy. I have no idea on the frame rate, I'll check.
