9600GT SLI or wait for 9800

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
First of all, sorry if I'm asking too many questions, Its just that I need to make a solid build that will last me a long time. Anyway, what do you think, and with my current mobo the SLI will only be in 8x mode. And price wise, would i be getting ripped off by buying 2 of these which probably aren't as powerful as a 9800?

Wait for the 9800. It's not that far.

I'd say that it isn't really worth it, to SLI two mid-range cards, over a single powerful card.

I would consider using SLI, it's been proven that the 9600GT SLI scales nicely. Not quite 2x performance, but pretty damn close if i remember right.
