Kind of ya, its the only game that Veedub likes that stresses his PC, but with two 9600gt's you get a solid 50FPS + the whole game

and he probably destroys that game with two 9800gtx's

If you want a 24" monitor as it is stated and you already know that you will need two of those 8800GTS G92. I guess thats the reason you bought the 680i eh?

Plus since Nosboost was selling his A1 for $100 its an offer you'd be crazy to refuse

Newegg.com - EVGA 122-CK-NF68-A1 LGA 775 NVIDIA nForce 680i SLI ATX Intel Motherboard - Intel Motherboards

And new ones are still $200... crazy..

i dont think SLI is neccessarily a requirement for a 24" monitor. a 32? definitely. a 24? questionable. bear in mind that i am now in the process of RMAing my 2nd 512 that i used in SLI...thats how much benefit i saw from it. when i had two 7900gs', the difference was amazing.
i run the same 24" on a single gts. i max every game i have with it on 1920 x 1200 if the game goes that high. i havent played AoC but i can get 30 or so fps high settings on my *cough* copy of crysis (which i think sucks and im glad i *cough* "borrowed" it).
here's a thought:
if you are going to go SLI in the future, fine. if you can get a good deal on that 24" get it and run the resolution at 1680 x 1050. you will hardly notice the difference...if you even notice it at all. that way, you will have a big monitor when you get your second card. and trust me...a 24" is quite a bit bigger than a 22"...lol i had both within a month of each other.

You're right, but when somebody like illnastyimpresa or most other people demand high settings after playing low settings their whole life, then for a 24'' you'd need a good SLi Config if you want to play the Max settings of newwer games
