no... gts and gtx are just better period.. in every way... the gts is cheaper because it costs less to make the card than a gx2 does... they have to place 2 cores on a gtx, and have pretty much 2 of everything to produce it... where as a gts is a single card...

the gx2 has more ram.. but thats it....

a 7800gtx costs more than a 7900gt... but its not better...

the ram isnt all that important... its just for holding textures pretty much... thats it.. playing higher resolutions pretty much is what its needed for..

don't get me wrong, ram speed is important, and amount does make a difference.. but its not as important as a whole new architecture

which is why x1950's in crossfire i think hold the record in 3dmark!!!

7950 is an awesome card.. don't think you got the wrong one... sli is just bad with the 7950.. why i don't know?? well its not bad.. but its not top notch..

and i've only got an x1950 PRO.. which is a piece of crap (7900 equivalent.. if that)

the 7950gx2 spanks a sinlge x1950xtx... i dunno what went wrong with sli?

check it out yourself... awesome single... waste of money SLi
