Default 8800gt SLI over 9800gtx (G92)

Which would be a more powerful buy?

2 8800gt's or the 9800gtx

I'm pretty sure the 8800GTs in sli would be faster..

I was going to use this board with an evga 8800gts
Newegg.com - ASUS P5E LGA 775 Intel X38 ATX Intel Motherboard - Intel Motherboards

But looking things over, I think using an SLI board with 2 8800GTs would be my best bet.

Can anyone suggest a good 780i board?

thanks

ummm correct me if Im wrong but I thought that the x38 chipset boards wouldn't run sli, only crossfire. Might be wrong but think so.. also I'm going with the 8800gt's in sli over the 9800gtx,, which gt's are you looking at?

gonna agree with vern on this one, Ive got the 750i FTW and I absolutely love it... only problem I had with it was resolved with flashing the bios to the most recent ones... other than that runs like a champ with my 9800gx2 and cpu OC'd to 3.6 100% stable.. got 17988 in 3dmark 06... great board

8800 gt sli is more powerful but I would also go with 9600 gt sli and a 750i ftw board... as it's cheaper and they scale good.

Or that asus board and 1 8800 gts g92 would be awesome too... I have that same board and I like it alot.

Just for reference he did say he had been looking at a single 8800gts and an x38.
