Hmmm..which card? - Page 2

post #11 of 14
If your screen doesnt run 1600x1200 then i'd stick with the 6800gs SLI setup. Its only 400$ and its pretty burly once you overclock them.

If you plan on playing your games at 1600x1200 then maybe just stick with a single gtx. Note that 2gb's of ram will help lots in fear and BF2 if thats what you plan on playing. Also note that with either 6800gs SLI or a gtx 256 or 512 you will need a pretty nice processor and power supply to not bottleneck.

The 4400+ is 2.2ghz? If you dont plan on really multi tasking you could always go for a cheaper single core processor thats faster. Dual core will not help your games.

That should settle it.

The GTX clearly outperforms two GS's in SLI.

I'd personally get a 7800 GTX 256mb so that later on when the prices go down I could get a second one for SLI and knock the socks off 2 6800 GS's.hehe just my opinion.
What? Beat out a 512? No way..

That only showed 1 game, which no one plays. And didnt take into account that the GS overclocks ALOT.

Here Winter PCI-e roundup

Just put the 6800gs above the Ultra. Same when SLI'd , put them a little above the Ultra SLI. I hate how they teseted fear with softshadows, since the fear softshadows suck and kill performance. Also how come tomshardware never uses BF2?
