    You should do SLI if you can afford it. But why not go SLI with 2x 1080s or a single 1080 instead of SLI 1070? Anyway, it depends with what you're going to do. If you'll be playing GTAV with everything to the max then SLI will probably make sense. But if you're just playing CS:GO or Overwatch then you should stay with one card.

    SLI = 1080, Price of 1070 = $400+, 2x 1070= $800+ (FE, not to sure) you were better off buying a 1080 than planning on sli-ing a 1070. Though you get more VRam

    I didnt have enough money for a 1080, i had 580euros, bought 1070, refunded. Now i se'd a agc and i could buy it. But from what i've seen on well optimized game benchmarks the sli 1070 surpass 1080.

    I don't want to be rude but...there aren't THAT many "well optimized" games. A single 1080 can beat a 1070 in SLI when the game is mediocre or badly optimized for SLI. And plus, with the new "2-Way SLI Only", if you buy another 1070...you're stuck with those and can't go any further.
    I personally have never been a fan of SLI because of the problems that can occur and sometimes having 1 GPU and sometimes both GPUs. It's all about optimization and I don't want to pay for a second card that only gets used on certain games.

    Yeah, if you already have the card and you are willing to spend the money, buy it! I had a 970 but I ended up buying the r9 fury x (I was going to sell the 970 but fuck it i'll build a mini pc xD)

    What makes you think the 1070 is not a high end card ? my 1070 will pound on your r9.

    Yeah but i mean if you plan doing a sli you should buy the best card. That's why i ended up buying the fury x. You have to avoid doing SLI because it has some problems. Getting the next card would be better than having 2x 970s or 1070s

    Also I don't think that a 1070 will pound a r9 fury x or a 980 ti, it's slightly better yeah, it's cheaper yeah and it's more power efficient.

    That's just your opinion, you don't at all. Let's follow what a stupid shit said and SLI two $1,200 cards because he said we need the only best ones in the word IF WERE gonna SLI. LOL!

    R9 Fury X is not a high end card, same with the 1070 and 1080. You just made it sound like the 1070 was a bad idea to get and it was a joke. When it beats your Fury X lol????? Give it a year and Nvidia will come out with a even more badass card with a reasonable price. No doubt. These cards will be long gone lol. There still badass either way.

    Or let's make it easier and say no SLI. SLI's anyway something that's painful to manage if you have hundreds of game. Each and every game responds differently to SLI. Some use it, some just let the 2nd GPU run idle.
