Lol, t'is the dilema of teh gam0rz.
Now, the thing is whilst we're young we have no cash unless our parents are rich. I figure in half a year I'll have a steady job n' a sweet rig.
Btw, where SLI fails, crossfire works. Crossfire (ati's solution to SLI) will still work in games that don't support dual vidcards. Of course the gain won't be as big as games that support dual vidcards, but it's still they say a x1.5 gain over a single vidcard. The only prob right now is crossfire costs more. Other than that? it'll probably be more dual vidcard friendly than sli. Nvidia bought out 3dfx, and that's how they got sli in the works, but they need to learn how to make their dual vidcard's as efficient as 3dfx got theirs. It literally was almost a x2 preformance boost. RIght now sli sits around x1.65 or so. Dunno for crossfire. So I dunno, sli's good, but I say maybe wait ti'll nvidia perfects it or lowers the price, and of course I'm sure later titles will support sli, and hopefully crossfire was well.
