Hello

I was wondering if you all could shed some advice my way.
I am planning on putting together with the following components.
So far i have done some light reading on the use of two Video cards and SLI support and I would like to give it a try. My question lies with the Video cards and their use of SLI. Now my monitor is still 19" CRT Hitachi Superscan 753. Until the bleeding ends on 1st person shooters on LCD's I haven't really wanted to change. Anyway, what type performance can I expect with two 128mb cards vs. two 256mb Video cards used in this manner SLI?

Oh, and please if there is another set of cards that you would recommend, just let me know provided that are priced 120-175ea, are Dx9.0 and OpenGL2.0?

ASUS A8N-SLI Premium Socket 939
NVIDIA nForce4 SLI ATX AMD
Model #: A8N-SLI Premium

AMD Athlon 64 3700+ San Diego
1GHz FSB 1MB L2 Cache
Socket 939 Processor

TWO:
eVGA 128-P2-N368-TX
Geforce 6600GT 128MB
128-bit GDDR3
PCI Express x16 Video Card

- OR -

TWO:
XFX PVT43GUDF3
Geforce 6600GT 256MB
128-bit GDDR3
PCI Express x16 Video Card


Thank you all very much for your time and I hope to here from you all very soon.

Sincerely,

Sandman38
All the best!

What W-dude said. You should only ever go SLI when you can't find a single card that is fast enough or as an upgrade path. What is your video card budget?

You know I hadn't thought about the price of the two cards vs going with a 7800gt! I just might do that! Thanks guys I really do appreciate your input on this!

Yeah, those cards are $160 a piece. So 160x2 = $320.
Your better off picking up an X1800XL or 7800GT --there @ $299
