So i was planning on getting another 8800 gt or upgrade to 9800 series cards... I know the cards are droping in prices do to ATI price ranges. so should i just wait or go SLI....
I don't think you are "Maxing Out Crysis with no lag" on a single 8800GT. My Dual SLI 8800GT's are at 720/1250/2000 and i get 35 FPS on a 1280x1024 res and no AA.

If your an nVidia fan guy, stick with it, but if you really want to blow the 8800 out of the water, the ATI 4850 is the way to go. That card just craps all over Nvidia's party on anything they have released.

Save your cash$£

I have been using a 260GTX for about a month and my 8800GTS 512 is only slightly slower in real world gaming at 1440 x 900 res

another good thing the (92) chip overclocks better than the (200) chip

I'm going to use my 8800GTS for now then i might SLI later on

No it does not

HD4850 is only slightly faster than a 8800GTS 512 in most games

Plus the 8800GTS 512 benches higher in basic 3D Mark 06
