Re: Update from Geforce 8600 512mb to 8800 512mb Gts?
Basically the 9800GX2 is 2 9800GTX's SLI in a single card solution. The 9800GTX is acually only marginally faster than the 8800GTS. The thing is that SLI scales good on big resolutions like 24" 1920 by 1200 and higher but on smaller resolutions that the 8800GTS can handle, the difference is not worth for a card that is twice its price.
If you can get a 9800GTX for not much more go for it, otherwise the 8800GTS is the way to go.
