what card should I get?? - Page 2

post #11 of 24
Get two of these
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16814500006
the zotac 8800gt Amp! edition preoverclocked to 700Mhz
They got amazing reviews and in a lot of benchmarks it was neck and neck with the 8800gtx they are $154 after rebate. Im sure you can only get 1 rebate per household, just have one shipped to a friends house

I'd go with two 9600GTs in SLI as the 9600's scale better then the 8800GTs
post #13 of 24
Personally, I would go with something totally different... I would get 2 x EVGA 8800GTS's

Yes. 8800GTS 512mb is a G92 core GPU. 8800GTS 640mb is a G80 core GPU. Here is the information.

Yea id go SLI why watse time with a GX2 when you could put that SLI option to some good use. There are enthusiasts all over the world who would kill to have SLI and your just gonna let it go to waste like that?!?!?

j/k but yea go for the 8800GT's imho...

with a GX2, I could just add another one further down the line...

the two options I'm considering the most right now are

512mb 8800GTS x2 in sli vs 9800 gx2 x1 (looking to get a second one at some point)

other option I thought of is getting one 9800GTX right now and eventually have tri-SLI

~ $500 budget right now
