9600gt SLI is it worth it?

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
Hey,

Santa is bringing me alittle something special this xmas, and its another 9600gt ok im too old i get razer's and aftershave for xmas now haha, but im buying myself a 9600gt with a PSU (which i still havnt made my mind up on one yet) and a 22" monitor.

I figured with the sudden jump from my 15" (1024x768x32 max res) id really want an upgrade on the card to keep the frames if im going up to 1680x1050x32, but would it be worth the frames per second when i bump up the res, what i mean is, will it be about the same as a single card on 1024x768 or will i still notice a few extra frames even though im running at a higher res?

You should notice some nice fps

Right now I have a single 9600 GT at 1280 x 1024 with an average of 70 fps in cod4. Going to 1680 x 1050 will bring me down to 59, but getting SLI will bring me to 112. You should see a great difference.
