Default 7800's on SLi

I currently have a Leadtek 7800GT Extreme Edition graphics card.

I want to go SLi. I have an Asus A8N-SLi.

Will a standard Leadtek 7800GT be compatible to go SLi with my Extreme Edition card?

Not enough to justify the price of getting two video cards.

you'll get a 20-40 percent increase anything in that range, depends on some games, some utilize Sli well.. some don't

if your struggling in any games right now, i would definitely say go sli instead of buying a whole new card

I guess the card is really the last thing you can, just wait till the new DX10 card come out and get an 8600 Ultra.

Well the 8600 is going to be played down towards the middle of the series and I would say $200-$250 considering that the 320MB 8800 GTS costs 300.
