did i do the right thing. - Page 2

going from a 7800 to an 8800 Ultra might be an upgrade that could be explained. going from an 8800 GTS to an Ultra will be a huge disappointment unless you can get most of your original purchase price back for the GTS if you sell it. yes, you will get better frames. no, the difference will not be worth the money you'll spend.

Was it with geforce 6? Many people have reported SLI 6800's slower in resolutions below 1280. Geforce 8 definitely does not have this problem. They make excellent use of SLI

However, I would've gone with the GTX if I were you.

You could have gotten a better CPU, 2gb of more RAM, a better cooler and another GPU for SLI for that price!

You'll be wasteing your cash in my opinion. If your current LCD only supports up to 1280x1024 then you won't be stressing your current card, never mind an Ultra. Make do with the GTS and put the cash towards something else.

Yup, you're nuts mate!

The card you have at the moment is amazing and for £400 you could have gone on holiday to escape the british 'summer' and avoided all the problems that the flooding is causing!
