Default 2 graphics cards

I don't have alot of money and was wondering how good 2 evga geforce 7600gt's are?

Is it really worth the second one?

I have 1 of those right now. I was going to use sli.

One 7900GT = Two 7600GTs

I'm running one 7600GT and Ive never had ANY problems running games. But If I had a choice between 2 7600s and one 7900 i would get the 7900.

Well, he'd have to spend a lot more to get the 7900, and his 7600 won't be in use...

are you sure that 2 7600gt's = 1 7900gt?

if so i am getting another 7600gt for this computer and an 7900gt for my other pc so that the graphics will be the same again.

Should be, or you could just get dual 7950GTX's and get some quad SLI going on but that would be rather expensive.
