Tell me what I need!!!

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
Alright well, I'm pretty sure that this is a graphics card question but here we go.

I just ordered this monitor here: http://www.samsung.com/us/consumer/d...LS24KIEEFV/XAA

and I was wondering what kind of graphics processing I am going to need to run most decent games. Because this monitor has a 1920x1200 resolution and I want to try and run most games at that so that they look good, I having a feeling I am going to need decent graphics hardware to get decent FPS. Right now I have an 8800GT with an Accelero S1 Rev. 2 and I just bought a Scythe Ultra Kaze to keep this sucker cool. I think that I want to add another one for SLi because its cheaper than buying a new board and 2 new 4xxx series cards. If it will mean better performance, then we all know that it needs to be done and the money needs to be spent. Thanks for any help.

If you have any links to performance reviews and up-to-date comparison testing, that would be awesome as well.

Thanks!

Yep another 8800GT in SLI would be a good option. Here is a look of 8800GT in SLI:
