post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
Im helping a friend build a new pc. He asked me if he should get a single GTX or 2 6800GS's He said hes not worried about whats futureproof cause hes updating later in 06. I guess he just wants bare performance. what do u guys think?

for 2 GS's I'd pay a little more and just get the 7800GTX IMHO

Id say the new best deal is the x1800xt.

2x 6800gs is stressing and uses lots of power. A single gtx is expensive but nice. Id personally go with the ati thought, just a little more for 512mb and some new technology.
