Do you know why they have "Director Cuts" and "XXX editions" and "Super Clocks"? Do you know why SLI and CrossFire exist? Do you realize why businesses exist? To make money.

The ENTIRE point of SLI is to sell 2 cards when previously they would only sell 1. The point of "Directors Cut" is to get the extra $10 out the moron who is willing to pay for it. "XXX edition" and "SuperClock" are ways to get extra money out of dumb people. EVGA isn't your best friend looking out for you. They are there to get every penny out of you. If they can find a way to sell the EXACT same thing to you for $30 more, you better believe they are going to do it.

paul is absolutely correct. There's no point in arguing with the genius. However, I do see both sides. I agree with paul... This is exactly why I will not got CrossFire in my DirectX 10 Build, and probably never will.


Example One of Money Wasted:
Two eVGA 8800GTS in SLi < One eVGA 8800GTX.
Two 8800GTS's = $840. One 8800GTX = $560.


Example Two of Money Wasted:
Two eVGA 8800GTX in SLi > One eVGA 8800GTX
One eVGA 8800GTX - 44FPS
Two eVGA 8800GTX in SLi - 47FPS
Three FPS More For Double The Price.

....where?
Please provide the reference behind the numbers. 8800GTS SLI beat 8800GTX. SLI or Crossfire matters if you are running the highest resolutions at 2560x1600.

I will soon have my 30" dell and 2 8800gtx's are going to be the only way to go if I'm to get the most out of my monitor...

I know it sounds stupid but I REALLY love the look of the ASC3 cooler so much so that I may sell my current 8800gtx and go with 2 of them instead of mixing...I like things to look right and it really bugs me if they don't so having two different looking cards really would...I know it will make little or no performance difference but I will feel better in the end.

People don't necessarily have to be stupid to have no clue what overclocking is...Besides, you act like you can count the amount of people with more money than brains on one hand .

You know, if you took all the money in the world and evenly distributed it among all people. In less than 10 years, the rich would be rich again and the poor would be poor again.

It is all about fining ways to charge more for the same thing.

Nonsense. Arguing is the best thing since sliced bread.

Most rich people (at least the ones that work and end up keeping their money) are smart, really smart, or at least smart enough to cheat us out of our money.

They don't become rich by being dumb and lazy! I hope no one here takes offense to me saying this, but if you do, I'm not sorry. The people with more money than brains are normally wives (spouses), children, or grandchildren of rich people.

I don't remember where I saw it but it was a test between an 8800GTS, an 8800GTX, and how they did in SLi... The test was in Rainbow Six: Vegas at like 1680x1240. I agree at 2560x1600 SLi is better but if you are dishing out $1,200 - $1,500 for a monitor I hope you have better cards than a single 8800GTS, the minimum would be a 8800GTX. Since you can drop another one in later on once games become more GPU intensive... DirectX 10. Even though SLi 8800GTS beat an 8800GTX you want to be future proof and not be greed now, plus it'll save you money since you only need to by one now at this price, then one later, once the prices drops again. That's just what I'd do... being an ATi Fanboy I'm probably going to do that with my RD600/R600... If I have enough volts from my power supply...
