Is two EVGA 8800 GTS 512 SSC good enough for high-end gaming on a 24" Monitor?

or Shall I buy a 22" 1680x1050?

Two of them would be overkill on 1680x1050. Thats what I used to run, and apart from a few games, a single card will max out anything.

1920x1200 is another story - at this resolution 2 cards would be perfect.

For 1920x1200 go with a card with a more memory than 512MB, the performance isn't horrible but it is a bit smoother with the extra memory. Unfortunately in SLI the onboard memory for only one card is used. A single 8800GTS 512MB, would give you some pretty good fps on a 22" monitor.

A single gts 512 struggles at 1680x1050 on some of the newer games. Namely Stalker: clear sky did not perform very well with a single gts 512.

I'm using 1 8800GTS 512 on a 1920x1200 and it runs everything I play very well. I have both 22" and 24" monitors and I highly suggest going with the 24" if you can. The higher resolution is nice and the larger screen makes gaming a little bit more involving.

The 8800gt doesn't seem to be struggling that much, 8800gts 512 is a better card.

I use a single 8800GTS on my 24in monitor and its fine. 2 will be more than enough. I would suggest getting a 24in monitor, there is a big difference between 22 and 24in, not just the size but the full HD.

Thanks everyone,
So two 8800GTS 512s would do good on 1920x1200.
