(3) 8800 Gtx.... - Page 2

post #11 of 19
I have two 8800 GTX in SLi and - to be honest - I don't have a display large enough to really leverage it... someday down the line I might upgrade to a 3rd, 30"+ display that can really push me into needing it, but all the more likely I'll end up getting new cards at that point as well, lol...

Still, with the ability to do physX processing on the extra card (soon, with new, yet to be released, nvidia drivers) there is at least some reason to keep them around rather than selling it outright.

:shrug:

If you can actually capitalize on resolutions over 1900+ then I say sure, it's your money and it's going to give you the massive hard-on you're after go for it. Nothing says your tool is made out of solid granite than being able to post 3d marks over 16,000 lol...

Ya man the 3 are not worth it right now.

It might be worth it considering he does have a 24" monitor. Tri-Sli does show some fps gain in really high res's.

Man i look at all the posts and i think "Man Go for it, bragging rights like mofo and ATTENTION." that's worth the money alone plus it will be better when you put it together, drivers will eventually come out for her and you won't have to upgrade every 3 months. or just keep on it like a chimpanzee on crack like i do!

Oh yeah and if you have an old CRT monitor lying around you can play crysis fully playable maxed in dx10! haha, whew i'm a little tipsy!

As noted in previous posts, Tri-SLI does offer a performance increase. But the price-to-performance ratio is horrendous - considering a single GTX will already play the vast majority of games completely maxed out (or maybe x 2 for larger monitors/resolutions), it really doesn't seem worth it IMO. Obviously Tri-SLI is great for benchmarking, however. So if that's what you're into, then sure, go for it.

Tri-Sli is only truly beneficial if you're going to be using huge monitor (30"+), and a very high resolution. In fact, tests have shown it can actually be slower at some of the lower resolutions because of the overheads of communications between 3 cards.

if ya got the money, and are close to getting them anyway, why not.. what else are you gonna waste your money on, you live, work, spend money, make more money, its an on going process. if i had the money i would. even if its not 100% worth it, dude, its 3 gtx's..lol

you would be set for a good while if ya did, not to mention the 9 series does NOT look promising in the fact of major improvements.
