I can get two 670's for 270 each new which brings me to $540. Top that off with the duplicate games they will come with selling one that will bring it me to $500 easy. If I sold both it would bring me to well under $500. Maybe around $460 at $40 bucks per game for two 670's when its all said and done. Again the 780GTX and the 290 are WAY over priced.Duel... lol you from Europe son?
Anyway, the 290 is lighter on heat for sure than two 670's (TDP of 2 670's = 340W), maybe not temperature, but heat output (certain you know those are different things).
As far as noise, no clue. But I would guess that two 670's are louder than a single R9 290x? Who knows.
To each their own though gentlemen.
Understand this...as you agreed with above, with it can come problems. There is more propensity of problems with SLI/CFx than with a single card, hands down (and more with CFx than SLI). I would imagine you agree.
From scratch, the GTX670's cost more than a R9 290X. Now, if you already have one 670, perhaps dropping another $350 is worth it to get faster than a newer card. Again, at 1080p, that is single card territory for 99% of games not named Crysis 3.
Again, to each their own.
Europe? No. Miami son and that's how I know when a GPU isn't worth the cream.
