Default Sli or 7900

So i have a AGP nVidia 7800 and when i want to upgrade (in 6 months or so) i can either buy a PCI motherboard and a faster vid card....or i can SLI my 7800.....which would be better....i assume the SLI would be better because 2 fast things are uasually better than one slightly faster one.....what do you know think

SLI is only with pci-e, so no, you can't SLI your card. By that time anyways, a new generation of video cards and processors will be available, so just save some money and figure out what your gunna do then.

AGP can't run SLI because of the way its designed.
