Default New Nvidia Cards

Would you buy a 8900GTX or a 8950GX2

Here is a link about the cards

This will be my next upgrade, I think that is all I would need to upgrade right now.

i would get the 8900gtx over the 8950 gw2 as it is a litle cheaper but probably performs better in sli then the 8950 gw2 i know u can get 2 of them but the power usage and the driver issues they still have trouble with the 7950 gw2 in sli so many have 2 7900gtx so i would get a 8900gtx
