Using 3 Nvidia GTX 760 4GB with an Sli Bridge overkill..

Recommended Posts

I was just wondering if it make sense to have 3 Nvidia gtx 760 4GB Video Cards with an Sli Bridge overkill or not? Would it help with perfromance or not Or should I just stick with what I have?

 

Current Rig:

 

i7-4970k

32gb DDR3

2X -4gb 760 GTX

500GB SSD for OS

250GB SSD for Prepar3d

Windows 10.

 

Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated...

What Jorge said.

 

I'm no expert,  but if 2 760 4 gig cards is not doing it for you,  i would say your at nothing adding a third one.  Are you not getting good performance with 2 cards?

If your two cards right now are being maxed out while you fly, adding a third *may* show a perf improvement. If they are not maxed out, it should have no noticeable effect at all.

The 760 is a rather weak graphics card. I would rather sell the two 760 and go for a single 980Ti. Or a 970 if you are on a budget.

I agree with Carlo also.

Agreed 3 cards do not scale well in general. whats required to run 3 760's is a complete waste. Huge power supply and x79/x99 chipset. Or a board with a PLX chip which can be more expensive.

Yep buy a 980 Ti - sell those other cards!

 

Tri SLI with 760's might be 1337 in other games like Fallout 4, but in FSX / P3D etc a single powerful card is better (or SLI 980 Ti's hehe)
