post #21 of 25
Thread Starter 
Yea but i need to pick two up cuz 2 x 8800GTX dont perform that well on full res. I'll be buying a new card/cards later in june/mid-July so i got time. I'll prolly get a good price on my existing one. And i'll need to sell my brand new Full coverage danger den waterblock for 8800GTX. Damn.

ATi doesn't really have a competitor to the 9800GX2. In Australia at least it retails for well over $750 while the HD3870X2 is $500. So it's really apples to oranges here.

All I meant is that Crossfire technology shows greater scaling (has been proven by TH) and is more advanced (crossfire-x).

If you plan on gaming at full hd, you going to need a dual or quad core that can reach at least 4ghz to take full advantage of your videocards. I would personally just go overclock and sli your GTX.
The only game worth getting triple sli and quad 9800gx2 is crysis and maybe farcry 2. Even so triple sli works and is cheaper assuming you have a mobo to support it.
Also the longer you wait the cheaper current tech is.

Yea and will my quad hit 4ghz on a 780i? Cuz more and more reviews i read, i gravitate more towards intel chipsets rather than nvidia when it comes to high OCs!

I say if you want to keep the RAM and CPU you have and be able to OC go for 2x 3870x2s. if you don't mind investing in some DDR3 and a hefty tagged mobo go for a 790 ultra SLI and 2 9800GX2s... Maybe I'd suggest a 780i but supposedly they still don't OC all the well for CPUss. at least u'd be able to keep ur RAM.

Basically I'm saying yeah, ur gonna need quad GPUs if you want to have playable frames and good looking graphics on todays top-endd stuff and the near future's everything else, lol. I got a 24" screen while i was on a single 7900GT, OMG was that mistake. I havea 7900GTX now and @ 1920x1080(42" HDTV ) and it still struggles alot in some older games @ that res w/ like 2x aa or jsut standard settings...
Max it out man! it'll soon be out dated no matter what you do, lol. todays high-end becomes tomorrows mid-end, so... yeah. Good luck and I hope your pocket book doesn't cry for it's momma...
