Windows 7: Gtx 790?

It's a really good card, the only thing that makes it a non-optimal card is the VRAM.
I made a mistake 1 year ago buying this instead of 2 GTX 680 4GB in SLI... But the GTX 690 was too much cool and I decided for it, saving around 150 €...

id get another 690! work out far cheaper and give you enough ram and horse power to max anything out and may even play some games at 4k happily!

Do you know how VRAM works for dual GPUs or SLI?

GTX 690 is 4 GB GDDR5, 2x2 GB. The effettive VRAM is 2 GB GDDR5.

If you SLI 4x GTX 680 4 GB, you don't get 4+4+4+4=16 GB, but only 4 GB.

by cheaper I meant than a 790 which will probably be $900+ so the rumours speculate.

im an ATI person but if it were me id get a single gtx 780. a reference version is around 500 so youd get some return if you sold your current card well maybe not sure what are worth these days.

GTX 690 costs 999$...

And quad SLI = more microstuttering + non optimized games...

And yes, I'm bottlenecked by VRAM, I'm sure...

Yep, you only get to use the ram that`s on the top card either in sli or crossfire. So it would fine to put a 4 GB up top in the 1st pci express slot and a 2 GB card in the 2nd pci express slot.

So teorically can I SLI a GTX 770 4GB and a GTX 770 2GB?
