Default Which video card?

Normally this would be an easy guess, but I'm having a tough time trying to figure this one out.

Since I sold my second 465 I have no good card to place in my server for guest gameage. All I have left is a 7950GX2 and an 8400GS. I know from previous experience that 2 7950GTs where better than my old 8800GS so I'm gonna guess a stock 7950GX2 performance is between 8800GS and 8600GT. That is of course, if SLI is being properly utilized ect ect. I'm pretty positive I can strap a Zalman VF900 on the 8400GS and OC it. What say you? 7950GX2 or 8400GS? This is to play games such as Battlefield 2, Supreme Commander, Black Prophecy, Unreal Tournament 3/2004, and a few others.

After some benching and toying around, I think it's painfully obvious which card is better lol.

The 7950GX2 would be my choice if SLI is working.

Yea after using 3d06 as a ref the 7950GX2 scores stock 6000+ marks higher than the OCed 8400GS. I might just put the vf900 on the 8400GS just to have some fun as I'm wayyy to bored right now.
