Better Performance???

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
Starting a new build and at a dilema, I have about $450/$500 for a video card(s) and was debating on either going SLI 8800GTS 512mb or a single 38070x2. Which would I see better performance from using a 22" LCD/higher resolutions? Thanks for any advice on this
