GPU Upgrade!

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
Ok so I am going to do some upgrading on my pc soon. I will get a sunbeam nuuo 550w psu. Now I wanted to know how much better would 2 6600gts be as compared to 1 6600gt. How would 1 6600gt compare to a 7900gt? 2 6600gts to a 7900gt? Would 2 6600gts last me a while?
More options would to
Get the psu, 1gbx2 g.skill, 2 6600gt, save the rest for dx10
Get the psu, get 7900gt
+rep for any help

the x850 is a good idea, or a 6800gs...that would be about the same price as 2x 6600gt's

Took me a whiel to remember where the link was but the 7800 by itself will outperform the 2 GT in sli mode. I suggest if you like find another cheap GT and sli it if you like and upgrade the ram. 7900 is just a small upgrade you would be blowing money because the really new stuff will blow away all the old stuf. That will keep you up to date more than enough. With all the new stuff coming out soon it would better just to save your money and see what you can get when the new hardware prices become reasonable. If the one card does its job great with the games you play another would improve it. The 7900 is great but the awesome ram and the psu would do you better . kust my humble opinion.
