pretty much the only way you should get SLI, if you do, is by getting one card first and one later

I would suggest BFG or eVGA

The bundle you mentioned earler... it is a good deal, and the card is basically two 6600's wrapped into one. It works just like SLI, but off of one card.

And, no, you can't add another card to it...


Antec 300 Illusion / Antec EarthWatts EA650 650W / EVGA GTX 760 2GB
AMD FX 8320 x8 Black Edition / Gelid Tranquillo / MSI 970A-G43
Sandisk Ultra Plus 128GB / Samsung 840 120GB / WD Black 750GB / WD Green 1TB / WD Red 3TB
G.SKILL Ripjaws 2x2GB DDR3 1600 - Crucial Ballistix Tracer 2x2GB DDR3 1600
Win7 Ult 64-bit - Func MS3 Mouse - CM Storm QuickFire Rapid Mech Keyboard

What about XFX?

So a SLI compatible 6800gt OC'd to get the Ultra speeds?

Anyone got any UK links?

Info on what kinda card would suit me:

I want great gaming graphics (running everything maxed out) but not bothered about viewing TV on it and doubt I'd be running over 1280X1024 (17" Dell LCD monitor.) And don't care about what games what it comes with.
