X2, Single core, Or 2 cards

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
I've been looking to buy a new card for my pc and ive had to decide between spending an ungodly amount of cash on the new Nvidia X2, or buying an 2 cards then using SLI. Then Recently my friend said that I should ditch the idea of using 2 cards or an X2 and said that a good single core card, and that there are some that could match its preformance. So what should i Buy im looking to play some Dx10 games like (Crysis & Age of conan) while i still play alot of games like WOW?

Well we have no idea what your computer is, is it a single PCI-E x16 slot? SLI? Crossfire?

Probably a Radeon 3870 or Nvidia 8800GT would work for you.

The answer to your question is the 8800GTS 512MB or the 8800GT 512MB. Those cards will handle everything on the market and then some, and you will be able to play your older games just fine.

The real question is what resolution do you game at? I am personally a fan of a good single card. For the money, you can get very good performing GFX cards. The new 9 series isn't that great, especially when you factor in all the price drops with the 8 series lately.
