    I have an amd x2 system with an asus sli board. Should I spend 200 and get another 7900gtx or shoul I sell my 7900gtx and spend an extra couple hundred n buy a 8800gtx?

    Thx!

    (Ps for heavy gaming use)

    The 8800GTX is near twice as fast, and it has DX10.

    For this kind of investment it'd be dumb not to be DX10 compatible.

    If he wants to have the bragging rights but not blow the budget, sacrifice a bit of performance and setup dual 8600's for under $200.

    XFX FTW! Just something always struck me as cheap about eVGA... but with their recent warranty changes, I would consider them as well.

    eVGA has made newegg's buyer's choice with a couple of cards. I had a bad experience a few years back with one.

    8600s are shit. might as well keep the one 7900GTX as it will perform just as good.
