cheap card that can use sli or crossfire?

i want a cheap solution $100-200 a card that can be used with sli or crossfire. the reason is i cant buy a $400 card and i want to buy 1 card first then another within a few months if not before when i save enough. i have seen threads but nothing up to date for. curent system: asus sabertooth 990fx r2.0, 24gb ddr3, AMD fx 8350 8 core 4.1 GHZ (liquid cooled i think h90), 750ti. i can play some games on high some med but since im trying to get into flight and driving simulation with the custom controls i need a better gpu. agian my budget would be $100-200 a card rather ebay or buying new

    Avoid SLI and Crossfire if you can really. It's a waste of power and money. It might not work for you, but a good option would just be to wait until you can afford the $400, and get a single card. Considering you're on a budget, you'd probably want to get the best value for the money, and SLI/Crossfire is terrible at that.

    If you still want to:

    This'll be good for the price, I guess. 970 can still play at 1080p okay. SLI will help somewhat, but seriously, that $400 can get you much better cards, if you can wait. My recommendation would be to avoid SLI and Crossfire at all costs, it's nothing but a power and money dump that doesn't offer much for your expenditure.

  2. i'd agree, much to picky with sli/xfire. only certain games support it so often you have a card sitting there doing nothing because the game does not support dual cards. when it does support it, it is often buggy and hard to get dialed in. of course there are times it is useful but not often enough to make it cost effective. support for it is slowly dying and in the end you will likely be very disappointed in what you get for the money.

    a nice used 970/980 would not be a bad idea if the price is right. or save save save until you can get the card you really want.

  3. Avoid SLI and crossfire if you can.

    but if you really must, then a couple of gtx 660s from the used market will do.

    The 750 ti doesnt support SLI.
