RTX 2080 ti SLI

Post by marcenzi »

I am building a new system and while I'm spending mad money, I'm wondering if there is any point to getting dual RTX 2080 ti cards and running them in SLI, or is one more than I'll ever need.

Upfront I'm running a 65 inch curved Samsung 4k tv.
I'd like to run some 27 or 32 inch monitors on the sides, but not sure if one PC can handle multiple window views, even with 9900k and 2080ti in SLI.

I also have two older PCs, one with a 6700K & 1080ti and #2 a 8700k with 1080, not sure if running all PCs 3 together would work for multiple views or if the difference in processor speeds and video cards would create havoc.

Newest build:
9900K binned for 5.0 Ghz
Kracken X72 CPU Cooler
Asrock Z390 Taichi Ultimate
GSkill 3200 Mhz CL 14 16BG x 2 sticks
Samsung 970 EVO Plus Series - 1TB PCIe NVMe - M.2
EVGA RTX 2080 Ti FTW3 Liqid AIO 1775 Mhz
EVGA Supernova 1000 T2, 80+ Titanium 1000W PSU
all going into a Coolermaster Storm Stryker case modded a bit to take the 360mm AIO exhausting out the top.

Thanks for any feedback, sugestions, or ideas.

I like my 1080Ti SLI but most of the time you don't notice a performance difference. It kicks in when rendering frames that are difficult for a single card such as lots of overcast, dense scenery and high resolution terrain textures all at once.

As an EE I think it is a budget issue. Don't break your budget. You can always add a second card later.

I run a single screen for P3D. My second PC is my "office" computer for stuff as well as where I run Desktop Charts and PFPX. It is nice to have charts and plan up on second screen.
