SLI 2 8800GT / GTS with my setup?

post #1 of 18
Thread Starter 
Question lies in the topic. Currently running my chip @ 3Ghz stable with 55c load. The 8600GTS 256mb isn't cutting it anymore. Wanted to know if SLI'ing 2 GT/GTS in the topic would be a good pairing with my current setup. Newegg has an awesome deal right now with the XFX 8800GT, ending the 20th I think.

Wouldn't really be needed since you only have a 19" screen.

If you're running at 1280x1024, there's no point in SLI. Just get a single 8800GT.

SLIing would be a waste of money in your case. Get a single 8800GT or GTS(G92)

Yes, one 8800GT will power your resolution in any game.

If you decide to upgrade monitors.... You can always buy another card later.

Well if I'm not going to get a performance increase running @ 1280x1024, it's a waste of money, something I don't want to do. So will I?
