only partially true.

hacked drivers allow for Sli but they only exist for GeForce 7 and lower

8800GT > 3870

8800GT SLi < 3870 Crossfire


So check those benchmarks out again.

I understand this but you don't tell the guy to bet on this on his upgrade.

LOL! best comment ive read in a while lins....
*wipes tears from the laughing fit*

as for checking benchmarks again, maybe Marin can point me to what he's seen? I've checked hardocp and got this-
http://hardocp.com/article.html?art=...50aHVzaWFzdA==

which to me was fairly relevant since even though im willing to spend quite a bit right now, doesn't mean I want to piss my money away (check the conclusion:value section). Not saying that crossfire config isnt better (not sure yet), but just that not sure i wanna spend 800 or so to do it if I can find a better and cheaper alternative.

Crossfire does scale somewhat better than SLI, but that doesn't mean that better Nvidia cards in SLI won't be better than weaker (well, less optimized) ATI cards in Crossfire. My suggestions:

Tri-Sli 9600GT's on a 780i board. This costs about $650, $920ish with memory and a Q6600.
Get yourself a P35 board and 3870x2. This costs ~$550, but probably isn't quite as snazzy.
Get yourself a P35 board and an 8800GTS G92. Still less Snazzy, but costs only ~$300.

The 3870x2 really makes Crossfire motherboards obsolete except for benchmarking runs and so on; not so the 9800GX2 (because the silly thing costs almost twice what it should).

wow- didnt know you could tri-SLI. But I have reservations about the 680i/780i boards. I didnt think they were nearly as stable or good at OCing as the Asus boards. I had made my mind up to get an Asus P5E3 Deluxe board. Rather than tri-SLI GTs, perhaps I should just suck it up and get the e-GeForce 9800 GX2? Like I said, I don't mind paying right now for what I will need in a year or so, just wanna make sure it's worth it. Your opinions?
