My case still needs the mods I want to do, so while that's being done im going to work without one and get everything ready till I get it back.

I know this is the best place to ask this but since its an SLi board I want some opinions... should I get one GTX or two GTS's for SLi?
I'd weigh in with one gtx. I have had a number of SLI'd rigs (including for awhile a pair of 8800gtx).

A safe rule of thumb is get the best single card you can afford with the option of adding a second for SLI later down the road. SLI is great and as mentioned above a pair of GTS in SLI will beat a single gtx but the upgrade path is then limited accordingly.

Despite Cogno's fascination, I personally feel the ultras are a waste of the extra money.

the single GTS 640MB I own gives me 70fps on COD2 with my 24" 1920 x 1200

Robilar just agreed on the upgradeability factor being significant... I still thinkg single GTX is the best way....


Now if you are not going over 1680 x 1050 then there is no reason to go higher than one 640MB GTS cause sLIED those should be able to handle Crysis at that rez... hope u r taking your monitor rez and upgrade timeline for it into consideration

Done, everyone has a point which is the exact same one you've made. To top that infonec has a deal on the BFG 8800GTX OC for $100 off regular price. I'm picking one tomorrow + my E6850 to make things even better I got the TR extreme today and boy, that thing is a beast.

Quick question, I got the Corsair HX-620 as you suggested a long while back, I wont have a problem running two GTX's in SLi with it, will i?

The corsair is a great power supply but it may be strained handling a pair of gtx (one will be fine of course).

Try the power supply calculator to see what it recommends.

Use 1203. It has all the various enhancements from prior versions and thus far has been very stable.

Rgr that! thank god your here to confirm it. I downloaded the last two just in case. Question, do I flash BIOS THEN change the memory voltage to make sure it's the correct value or the other way around?
