one is a single PCI-E system and the other is an SLI system. look up SLI if you don't know what it is. short story is it allows you to run 2 graphics cards together for one output

so is that the only diff ? i learned what SLI was this morning.
i was thinking on it just in case i ever did in the future need two.
was just wondering if their is any reason not to go with the SLI except the price ?

thanks

yeah.....its performance comes no where near double as you would expect unless at very high resolutions. on average performance is perhaps at max 30% higher which hardly justifies double the price

don't be worried about it being 8X. cards don't even use more than 8X bandwidth yet
