There are those who are nay sayers about sli but I have two 7800GTXs in sli now and I can testify to the gains of sli over a single card.
In a previous thread I mentioned playing doom 3 on ultra quality 1280x1024 and x4 AA and getting 12-20 choppy frames on a single 7800 GTX then running duals in sli and slamming a flawless 60 fps.
In about a month I intend to buy a SyncMaster 226BW 22IN Widescreen monitor capable of playing games in 1680X1050 and will require an even stouter card.
Please specify the card setup you're recommending so I can research it further. I'm tossing out a lotta dough for this new rig and I'm certainly willing to do some research.
I am flexible. Originally I was planning on an e6850 processor and vista 32 but after visiting this forum I've already changed to the q6600 and going with vista 64.
no, he's talking about 8800GT..the newest card in the lineup. it came out yesterday. a single card is supposed to go head on with a GTX (supposedly), but it only costs like 280 bucks. unless you buy it on ebay lol.
so, 2 of the 8800gt will perform extremely close to 2 x GTX, but for half the cost.
there will be about 20 of us on here thursday/friday to post our benchmark results with the 8800gt.
