1 big card always is better.

No point in doing 7870 LE CFX as it doesn't work properly and so the results won't be worth the charts they're displayed on tbh.

It's a shame that a pair of Boosts cost so much. The last few cheeky SLI systems to have worked out much cheaper than their big single card counterpart but Nvidia have been upping prices of lower model cards and have ruined the fun a bit.

Shame

That's why you do 660 SLI because they still cost under £300 and are faster
660 SLI will easily beat 680/7970.

Indeed yeah. The Boost was worth having for about a week, then the 660 dropped to the same price

Well there are cheaper 1GB 650 Boosts now which gives them a niche to inhabit that doesn't overlap with the 660.

1gb is not enough for games if you're going to have that kind of power. It's not even enough for BF3. If you're going to have to turn settings down then there's no point SLIing them.
