8800gtx's compatible with TRI-SLI?

post #1 of 17
Thread Starter 
Just wondering as the 8800gtx's are going for $269 on newegg. Do you know if they are compatible with tri-sli along with the ultra and 9800gtx?

you can tri sli 3x 8800gtx's, I don't think you can tri sli a 9800gtx, an 8800ultra and an 8800gtx together if that's what you mean

you can tri-SLI three 8800GTX's/ three 9800GTXs/ three 8800Ultras but not a combination of these.

Right, thats what I meant. 3 like cards together (3x9800's or 3x8800ultra/gtxs). Sorry for the confusion. Ok, so I could run 8800gtx's. Would these perform similar to 3 8800 ultras? because they run crysis VERY well at the res i game at (1920x1200)

They wont perform as good as 3x ultra's but they'll still perform very well

Do you think its a significant difference between the 2 in tri sli in regards to crysis? I think $269 is a GREAT value for the 8800gtx even though it is aging.

Well they will both offer good framerates, and at the end of the day that's all that matters

they run really well, but they dont scale nearly as well as the g92 core cards when in sli.

for better performance in sli, id go for the 3x 9800gtx.

Yes, Ive considered this route myself, but I hear that the ultras performed better in tri-sli for crysis than the 9800gtx tri-sli. Is that true or sound true?
