I am torn between two GTX 970 cards in SLI and a single GTX 980. Which will give me better performance overall, since they end up being relatively similar in price? I am looking at MSI Twin Frozr cards.

Two 970's will be better performance wise

I heard something about SLI having an issue with stuttering on some older games that they should have no problems with. Is that true?

It really depends on which games you play but yes that's true. Also not every game supports sli as well so it will effectively be one 970 in some cases.

The two 970's will perform better, although, a single 980 will be much better for upgrades.
