    i have an asus p5w-dh so SLI is no option, and the 3870's sound pretty damn good for the price :hs:

    It won't do SLI but it will do Crossfire?

    If so, it would perform decently enough. But if it's anything like SLI, it will be buggy.

    And your 8800GTS is not exactly low grade, either.

    Ah. Still, you're looking at a big deal to sell the one card, then buy a pair of the other card for what, $450 or so?

    If you're sitting on an 8800GTS already, you would be better off waiting until January to see what comes out of the
    next gen nVidia stuff being released.
