RE: Upper Mainstream build, The Red Phantom.
Thank you, appreciate it. Smile

I play games ranging from Max Payne 3, Skyrim, Total War Shogun 2, sadly i dont have crysis or battlefield 3 to test out yet.

Since the 600 series Nvidia cards are new, the drivers are a little meh with the SLI in some games. Like Blacklight Retribution, they say SLI works, but it drops my frames below 60+ FPS than with a single card. But when it works, it flies. I game on 1080p on a 47 inch LED Sony Bravia HDTV.
