Sli or not?

post #1 of 14
Thread Starter 
For about the same price I can get 2 of these and sli them

EVGA 320-P2-N811-AR GeForce 8800GTS 320MB
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16814130082

Or one of this

EVGA 512-P3-N841-AR GeForce 8800GTS (G92) 512MB
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16814130325

for the same price. What would yield me a better performance?

EDIT* I dont have a system yet but plan on getting e8400 and mobo (not decided)?
I do have 226BW samsung lcd.

I think it would be better to go with the g92..in the future you could buy another one of those.

Get the G92 GTS, the G80 GPUs are great and all..but the G92 will last you longer in the long run.

Seconded, well apart from the killing you bit, unless the 320MB versions come with instructions on the best ways to commit suicide.

In other words, 2 is better than 1 is NOT the case here.

So sli G80 would not help me much over a single G92 card?
but what if i dont plan to upgrade in the future with another G92 to sli them.


side note...how the hell you guys respond so fast.
I feel like I am being bombarded with replies in minutes...
no other forum does this to me..its like the repliers are waiting for questioners while the other forums its the other way around. AWESOME

Even with SLi, the G92 is better.

SLi doesn't double performance, it just gives a small boost and helps at large resolutions.
