OK this has been eating at me for awhile, what's the difference between (1) 7950 GX2 vs. (2) 7900 GTX ?
From what I understand 7950 is two GPUs on one card, and 2x 7900 is 2 GPUs as well (albeit 7950 is both on same unit). Aren't they both SLi as well?
Yet, 7950 is only like 100 bucks more (than a single 7900 GTX), whereas if you want 2x 7900 GTX's you have to shell out ~1000 dollars.
I'm asking because this is my only stumble block left to decide in which GPU/Mobo combination to get for my C2D system. Basically, Asus PW5 is a Crossfire mobo and ASUS P5N32-SLI is (the only?) SLi Conroe mobo.
Seems to think X1800XTX whether Crossfired or single is behind SLi or single 7900GTX. So this will impact what Mobo I was planning on. Can someone please help clear this up for me? I'm a dumb noob, thanks.
