I currently have a GTX 560 TI and it seems to run the hanger at about 20 fps. It is a great card to run games like crysis 3 on high setting but i fear it is being outdated quickly. My question is would it be worth buying another GTX 560 ti and SLI mode it for combined power, or would it be better just to completely upgrade to a new video card like a 780Ti ? I want to be able to run star citizen on high setting.

If I were you, I would wait until we get closer to the release of Star Citizen before upgrading anything, unless you just have a lot of money to spend. The GTX 800 series should be out soon, and by the time Star Citizen comes out, maybe even the 900 series. So buying anything now will pretty much be outdated again.

I am a bit on the same side as you having a GTX 570 myself.

Have upgraded my whole PC except my GPU in december but waited with GPU upgrade.


Now I also want to play the DFM though at nice details. So I think I will wait for Release of DFM and I expect that we get DFM requirements around PAX. Then I will buy something moderate for that the week before actual release of DFM (not any day sooner) and probably upgrade again in 2015 for the full release.

Everyone says wait...and that probably is good advice...no arguments with that.

However I went ahead and bought 2 Asus r9-290s and I am very happy with them.

Each card was $400 for a total of $800 and I don't think you can get better performance for that price.

      After a long time of research and configuring what I believe to be the best set up for Star Citizen and general gaming and purpose, it's almost ready to start the process.
      I was always intrigued by the idea of a simpit but never liked the ergonomics until I came across this post and the set up going on:

      I believe this is the set up I'm going after. Just wanted to know if there was anything I should add to this list besides the Volair Simpit, large center display and two alternate displays:
      VKB Space Sim Joysticks
      VKB Throttle

      Corsair Dark Core RGB SE w/ Amazon Qi Charger
      Is there anything else I should be looking at? Eventually there will be a VR headset and I will most likely be picking up the FOIP camera for SC.

      I come back to you following my thread that I did six month ago, and I have a lot of news!
      To sump up quickly, I’m in the company that has created the Lexip mouse, a mouse with two integrated joysticks for 3D profesionals. After my last thread, I talked with my team and the project of created a gaming mouse started.
      We have improved our first mouse thanks to our beta testing team who allowed us to create the perfect gaming mouse: 200 to 8200 DPI, braided cables, programmable buttons…
      Today, in order to bring this project to a successful conclusion, we launch our Kickstarter campaign! I wanted to share this information with you in preview because it’s thanks to you, members of this forum that this project is born. 
      I can answer all of your questions, this mouse is my baby! ;)
      Thank you for everything!

      WD PR4100, TS-453A-4G or DS918+
      The first two are very similar price give or take 50. The newer one of the QNAP, The TS-453B-4G, however, the pricing is gone way up to €702.67 from its old(er) version €491.82 TS-453A-4G.
      The TS-453A is the very similar with the PR4100 in price, but it does have HDMI, which the WD doesn't have. However it is software side that the QNAP is the king QNAP are supposed to be the leader in apps with synology coming second.  I'm leaning towards the second one TS-453A-4G at the moment.
      Basically I want to use it as another backup of my OS, torrent and watch vids really.  However, I lack the experience of running/setting up all three.
      any advice would be much appreciated.
