New Card - gt-sli, gts92, or gtx?

post #1 of 10
Thread Starter 
Old gts320 is starting to crap out on me, looking to get a new card(s). I'm undecided amongst the following:

2x8800gt in SLI config
the new 8800gts512
or an 8800gtx

I've seen the gtx dropping below $400 some places, so all three options carry roughly the same price tag. (for any other suggestions you may have, take $400 as price limit)

any ideas on what I should pick?

What resolution do you game at? That should be your decision factor between the G92 or GTX

if you can take the hassles then the 8800gt sli is a no brainer,but try and wait for the 9xxx series even though they don't look promising right now.
you should wait for some initial reviews on the performance of those cards before going ahead with an upgrade.

SLI 8800GTs,but wait a little less than a month and you'll get to see how the 9 series perform AND a price drop on the 8 series.

Gtx is so cheap. The brand new gtx is just $339 after MIR. Depending on resolutions, you have $400, I still think 2x 8800GT or 2x G92 gts is a good option if you want to get them right now. Otherwise, hold you cash and wait to see some real benchmark from new GPU.

What is your gaming resolution? That will heavily affect what kind of card you should get!

If you game at higher resolutions like a 24" Definatly pick up a GTX.. for a 22" and lower, I beleive you can get away with GTS G92.

The new series will be out soon but if you buy EVGA you can step up using their program
