Step-up?

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
So im trying to decide if i step up my 9800GTX to a GTX260 for 112$. Do you really think ill see a noticeable difference in FPS? i do plan on SLI'ing whichever way i go though i wonder if stepping up later to a GTX+ and buying another 9800GTX+ and SLI'ing them would be better then two 260's?

I'm not sure what the benchmarks are on the 260 but I can only guess that 2 260's would be faster than 2 9800's.

My question is why? Are you only running a 22" monitor? Its not worth the money for only running a 22" with a max 1680x1050 resolution.

2 260 is going to be the best, however 2 9800gtx+ will be best for money imop.
