I am trying to figure out if picking up another GPU to run in SLI is really going to be worth my time and/or money.
While playing video games I usually run capturing software in the background. I usually switch between Fraps and Bandicam. When I start to record in game footage my FPS will usually drop down to the low 20's. When I am not recording I average 35-55 fps. My question is, if I decide to run another card in SLI will I notice FPS improvements during normal gaming sessions and/or when I'm capturing footage.
By the way I am running at 1920x1080p resolution.
Any advice would be appreciated. Thanks.
