do I only need one 8800gt?

post #1 of 16
Thread Starter 
Kinda gettin back into gaming, and wanting to build a new system or finance a HP.... cant help it they got sweet deals. Anyways I only use a 19inch widescreen for gaming.. would 1 8800gt be able to keep up with these newer games coming out.. crysis.. ect. or should I get 2 and a SLI mobo?

I assume your dumping that rig completely, if so the build one. Its a mistake to get an 8800GT with a stock HP psu. If you want an enthusiast computer then you need to build it.

It depends really. What resolutions are you going to be running at max ?. I think it would be better to purchase a single more powerful card .

The best cards (nvidia) have to be 8800GTS 512, 8800GTX, 9800GX2,

The cheapest is a 8800GTS 512 at about £160
