Woah, that's an impressive spec. What do you throw at it to need 3x 1080s in SLI?


When I built it (a month ago), I knew that I didn't want to build another one for quite some time. The SLI is basically to make sure that I won't even have to upgrade the GPUs anytime soon. I do have an HTC Vive that I've been playing around with, so it does help keeping the immersion "real" (always 200+ fps regardless of what I play/do). The RAM is the same deal - other than the fact that my last desktop had 64GB of RAM and due to the compiling of code, virtual machines, and the likes that I do for work was eating that up easily (well 50-55GB).

I wouldn't mind swapping with you and testing it out for a day to run some benchmarks and have a play around, it sounds like a monster. Have you had any issues / did you have any issues with getting a 3way SLI set up? I know a few people with two 1080s in their set ups but I think you're the first that I've seen with three.

If you have a pic of the PC it would be interesting to see how it all looks (before inevitably making the PC envy even worse)

I'll post my specs, maybe that will entertain you. I need do some clean up and organize my hard drives. Maybe tomorrow, suppose to get a lot snow.

3 in sli & you got it to work ? NVidia has been gimping sli so it will only work on 2 cards while gaming . The third card only works when benchmarking . Jay's Two Cents did a video showing how it doesn't work anymore . Anyways , nice rig . Here's my specs :
Cpu: i7 4790k o/c to 4.6 on water
Memory 16gb Corsair Vengeance DDR3 ram
Motherboard: Gigabyte Z97
Video cards: 2 evga 980tis w/ACX coolers
Power supply: Corsair RM750 Gold rated
O/S Win 10 64bit
Main drive: Samsung 840 Evo
Game drives: 2 1TB WDs

That was my first thought too. 3 way SLI isn't supported by the 10xx series. Technically you can use the 3rd as a dedicated PhysX card (which is not the same as SLI) but the only game I know of where a dedicated PhysX card will actually make a significant difference is Batman Arkham Knight.

Anyway, specs.

CPU: i5 4690K @4.4Ghz using a Cooler Master 212 EVO
Mobo: Asus Z97-E
GPU: nVidia GTX 970
RAM: 16GB DDR3 2400
Drives: 250GB SK Hynix SSD \ 2TB HDD
Power: EVGA G2 650W
OS: Win10

Favorite thing about my PC -

My PC lives close to my consoles and TV, so I've got an HDMI running to the TV to use the TV as a secondary monitor. If I want to play with keyboard and mouse I sit at my desk. If I'm playing a controller based game I turn on Steam Big Picture Mode, swap things to my TV and go sit on my couch with a controller.

All the Arkham games benefit with a PhysX card . There are quite a few games that support it , but some not so well (Borderlands 2 is plagued w/issues) . I don't remember if NVidia still has the list up on their site naming them . I have most of the games listed there . Personally , I wish they would just use a unified engine like Havok that works on both camps of video cards . I also use steam in-home streaming to run ganes from the big boy pc to my living room HTPC while using a wireless controller .
