I have a Dell XPS 720 h2c that has x2 Nvidia 8800GTX (top end PC) that just blow up and so need to replace them, I'm no tech guy but need help. My budget is £100-£200 (per card), and should be SLi technology, and should be same or more quality for gaming (call of duty mw3) please help thanks.

Maybe the power supply is bung too?

If its just the cards, then don't get anything that needs more power than 2 8800gtx - 550W

The just get one card for under 400 quid (about 600usd?) which is just about anything. But 500W will handle at most - a GTX 760 or R9 270x

The 760 costs a bit more but has a bit more performance than a 270x. But both cost less than half of your budget.

No, the power supply is ok, and I'm just confused about DDR3 and DDR5. Q. will any graphic card work with my mothboard?
Thanks

The RAM on the graphics card wont cause an incompatiability. You can have DDR5 graphics card on a DDR3 System.

Get a GTX 760. A single GTX 760 is way more powerful than your 2x 8800GTX (although good cards in their day, are very old and low performance now).

Yes. You can SLi 2 of these together. But you really dont need to if you are mainly playing MW3. A single 760 is roughly 4x faster than 2 8800gtx.

Thanks, I can let my hair grow now, I've been pulling it out ever since the 8800's blow up :)  thanks mate...... One more question, there's too many different GTX760 out there, which one is the highest quality and would last me for a good 4-5 years?
