Need help on SLI
I am going to be playing Guild wars 2 on a Tri Monitor 1920x1080 (x3) setup and find that my 560Ti cannot do it by itself. I don't think my power supply can handle 2 560Tis by itself but my friend said it would be a better option to buy a new powersupply and a 2nd 560Ti and that I would get better results using that in SLI than just scratching all of that and buying a 4gb GTX 680 when it gets released.
My friend also said I'd get better performance for the dollar.

What do you guys think? Am I better off just buying a PS and 2nd 560 TI or selling mine and getting a gtx 680 4gb?
One note is either solution has to have 4gb because I intend better than minimal graphics settings on the tri-monitor.

One also side note:
If possible, I would like a 4th connection to my Tv for streaming movies and youtube etc.

Going for a 680 would better as it would give you the option of adding a second in the future. Just make sure your power supply is 550w or above for a single 680.

Also bear in mind that you would be playing at a resolution of 5760x1080 so it would be better to go for a 680 with 4gb of vram /smile.gif' class='bbc_emoticon' alt=':smile:' />
