I was thinking of trying to trade for this card as the guy said he would take something other than cash. It would give my son's pc dual GTX 760s but the thing is the guy told me the card is a dual slot card. In what I read so far I am not seeing that said but if someone can confirm whether or not it is that would be great. The motherboard my son has is the Gigabyte 990FXA-UD3 and I am wondering if someone can tell me if this card could fit along with the Gigabyte GeForce GTX 760 OC he already has. The model my son has is GV-N760OC-2GD. Uhmmm also if I was to pay cash for the card the guy is selling what is a reasonable price to pay for it? Thing is in Canada many are not reasonable though so ... :S
Make sure that Asus is also a 2GB card. Otherwise it won't work in SLI.
Since your current card is a dual-slot, I don't see why it wouldn't work in your motherboard. Just put one card in the first PCIe x16, and the second card in the next PCIe x16 slot that's under it. They'll be right next to each other.
As for canadian pricing, I'm not too sure. Here in the US you'd probably only get $110 maximum, but those are freedom dollars.
Also make sure that you have a power supply which can handle the second card. Preferably around 750w, I believe.
I have a 1000 watt psu I can swap into the pc so no problem providing both cards power. As for what you said in regards to the price it pretty much equals in Canadian what the guy is asking for the card. He is looking for what you would call the maximum or close to it. Oh and if I go this route and SLI I should upgrade my son's monitor I assume to something that supports 120 or more Hz eh?
Make sure it's a decent quality 1000w unit!
Looking on ebay seems to yield some pretty cheap GTX 760s. Maybe you could discuss pricing with that seller using these prices.
If you want to spoil your son, 144hz is the way to go. Once you go 144hz for gaming, it's so hard to go back.
I was about to recommend haggling with the guy, $150 is a bit high for US, but I'm not sure about CAD prices. I know CAD is pretty low compared to USD lately.
