Worth it to Quad SLI 9800 GX2

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
I came into a free EVGA 9800Gx2 recently, and found another one on Amazon for about $100. Would it be worth it down the line to put two 9800 Gx2s in Quad SLI? I dont need the latest greatest hardware, and a single 9800Gx2 will suffice for at least a year. So would it be worth it to spend the $100 for another 9800Gx2 quad sli system? Or should i just wait for the GTX 700 series and buy one of those cards?

not worth it if you already have 3 GTX 260s.
9800GX2 = 9800GT SLI = GTX285

Best way is to sell all those cards and get an HD6950 2GB or 560ti 2GB

Lol actually that was an old proposed rig i deleted a few months ago... no idea why it hasnt updated itself yet though. Before i got the 9800 GX2 i was using an XFX GT 240. Obviously the 9800 Gx2 is better than the GT 240, if i had Tri-SLI GTX 260 i wouldn't have even taken the 9800 in the first place, lol.
