Wait a bit and see how the HD4000 series performs
They're coming out soon

If you can't wait, SLI your 8800GT

Yeah i would think if you cold wait then you could see how the new ATI cards do. but as others have said, getting another 8800gt would give you the best bang for buck
post #8 of 10
Out of those options... get another GT or wait for the new ATI line. If I were you, I would wait for the ATI line, but I hate using SLI.

Actually, if I were you, I would just keep the GT for another 6 months or longer.

I see that you use 1280x1024. I say it's a waste of money to go SLI running at that resolution imo. I would also wait for the new ATI series and see how they perform. You should be fine with most games at that res and max settings for now.
