2x 6800LE vs 1x 7800 GT - Page 2

Well... Think of it this way:
2x 12/6 128mb = 24/12 256mb 256 bit vs 1x 20/7 256mb 256 bit.
2x 16/6 128mb = 32/12 256mb 256 bit vs 1x 24/8 256mb 256 bit.
edit:and yes, the GT would be slightly more future proof, but for the price... I would go for the LE's, 2 of em unlocked to 16/6 for less than $300...

Well, the 6800LE im looking at has 256md memory, so were looking at 512mb in SLI. Compared to the GT's 256.

Also, you cant just double the numbers. Although it should be, SLI will never give you exactly twice. wasnt it like an 85% performance increase or something??

Hmmmm.....I found something that kinda proves me wrong....

http://service.futuremark.com/compare?3dm05=1486970

BUT, I'm running at 2.7 with horrible ram and this dude is running at 3.0, same processor.

BTW, that 7800GT machine in comparison is mine

Hmmm, but i have a 1.8 and horrible RAM

I want to buy the 6800LE's just so I can have SLI, but i want to have a 7800 just so i can say to my brother,

"hey I've got a geforce 7 PCI-e gfx card, what have you got? Oh thats right a geforce 4 mx AGP "

Right, I've just realised what i have to do. First things first. New PSU. Then I'll OC the CPU, Rams cheap, but its still alright. Then ill sell my 6600GT (:'-()
And buy.....you know im still not decided.

Im swaying towards the 7800GT, just because i know its always best to buy the best for your money and not cheapskate, otherwise it'll break early or become out of date.

Well, you have to realize, I'm at 2.7 and those LE's BARELY beat me at 3.0. And I mean barely.

Wait till I get it up to 3.0

I'd say go for the 7800GT, there's a number of reasons why... Less power consumption, leaves room to put in another 7800GT later on, the gains from the SLi 6800LEs won't always be there and the gains aren't two-fold, usually about 60-80%, no guarantee the 6800LEs will unlock (in fact, the PCI-E 6800s use a different core that only has 12 pixel pipelines, so 16/6 is completely out of the question). 7800GT all the way, I loved mine, it was a beast, the GTX was just a tiny bit faster and it was free.

Yeah, I had an eVGA 7800GT, and it was free cause my dad decided to build himself a new computer, took my GT and bought me a GTX I dunno, mine came out of the box at 450/1200, did yours come overclocked Krunk? Either way, can't go wrong with either.
