What sli bridge do I need for my gpu's?

Hi all,

I am making a custom, older pc to use as a windows 7 machine.

Specs:

CPU: i7 870 2.93 GHz
Motherboard: Gigabyte p55a-ud4p
PSU: Corsair cx 600m (600 watts)
4gb ddr3 1600mhz ram (working on adding more)
120gb Sandisk SSD plus
an old 160gb HDD

1st GPU: Evga GTX 660
2nd GPU: GTX 1070 Founders Edition

I still have to get my case.

Is sli possible with these 2 GPUs? I will include pics of them if you want.

If I can use sli, what bridge connector do you recommend I use?

Thank you

I will upgrade my 660 soon to a 1070 as well, but for now I can't.

You can`t SLI those 2 cards, they must be the same series.

Either get a single 1070 Ti, or wait for the new 11xx series to come out.

You don't need 2 cards.

EVGA - Products - Graphics - GeForce 10 Series Family - GTX 1070 Ti


And I recommend this for a storage drive, get it when you can.

Ok, thank you for your help!

96 bucks for 4tb? Not bad at all!

Thank you again :)

Wow, even the price for a 1070 Ti is ridiculous.

I hope the new series of nvidia cards will bring the prices back down to normal, this is insane.

I read an article talking about putting some type of lock on the cards so miners can`t use them, and another card just for miners so that gpu manufacturers could profit from them. Always trying to make an extra buck

Yeah, I know what you mean. I'm just going to keep my 1070 for now. my extra 4gb of ram came in as well as I got myself a 1tb hard drive (since i only play a few games).
