Help me understand card comparison

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
I get very confused with all the comparing, What is right? not money for money i am talking card for card comparison.

2 x 8800 to 1 GX2 or (A lot of people like to compare this and say this is how it is)
2 x 8800 to 2 GX2 or (A lot of people like to say this is not right)
1 x GX2 to 1 GTX 280 or (A lot are saying this is right)
1 x GX2 to 2 GTX 280 (A lot are saying this is not right)

I fully understand value for money verse performance the GX2 or 2x 8800 is the way to go but when comparing cards verse cards what is right.

From what i see it is ok to compare 2 single 8800 single GPUs to a GX2 but is not ok to compare 2 single GTX 280 GPUs to a GX2 Why?

Don't flame me please guys as i am no Guru on this stuff, just after a little help understanding how this works and what is the right way to compare all these cards so i can make the right choice in the future.

Thanks

The GTX280 is a very powerful card, so two of them are too strong to be compared to a single GX2.

Two 8800 are comparable to a GX2 because a GX2 is MADE out of two 8800's sandwiched together.
