Buy a used one from SLI Zone or eBay or Craigslist..

nVidia's SLI tech is pickier than CFX so you can only SLI with another 8800GTS g92

so there is no replacement for the 8800gts that I could SLI with ???

**** that sucks... O well, I guess finding another 8800gts and SLIing it will still be better(cheaper) than buying a new card.

I would sell you mine if I had one.

It's the thought that counts, right?

I'm pretty sure as long as the card has the same architecture you can SLI with it. For example the g92 arhcitecture is still used in the 9800 gt or gtx, so you could SLI with that I believe. Of course the performance will be downgraded in the 9800 to the 8800

edit: I looked it up, the 8800 gtx runs a g80 core, while the 8800GT and the 8800GTS run a g92 core. So I think you could do it.

Check SLI Zone, you'll actually get a decent deal there because eBay will make you pay close to the price of a new one...

Why don't you just upgrade to maybe a 260 or something. It would keep it more...."up to date"
