Default Video card. 8800.

Im confused. I can get
2x G.Force 8800GTS 320MB PCI-Express Over-clocked in SLI
or
1 'G.Force 8800GTX - 768MB PCI-Express

for the same price. Wouldnt it make sense to get 2x the GTS? :happy:

i'd rather go with a single GTX. it will perform just as good as 2 GTS's.

We've already covered this... do a little forum research first please.

or you could do it and post links for him? not everyone wants to have to search which is what the forums are for... you can find all your answers on google or an encyclopedia, but we choose to come to forums for a reason

anyways, gtx owns 2 gts', sli doesn't have the performance it should

Why would I do it? I didn't post the question so why inconvenience myself? I simply suggested he used the search function. Wouldn't me providing the link for him defeat that purpose?

And I understand what you're saying, it just gets repetitive.
