Should I put my 8800 gts 640 in SLI?

The main reason that i hear people put their pc's in sli is if they have large screens. I have a 17" Princeton... don’t laugh but i was wondering the other benefits of having SLI. I know the frame rates will go up but is it really needed?

More about should 8800
  1. For a 17" it's not worthy...you won't feel much of an improvement in gaming.

    Unless you have alrdy gotten 1 8800GTS i would suggest getting 1 8800GTX instead of SLI 8800GTS
  2. on a 17", there wont be much difference. Minimum for SLI is 24" with a minimum res of 1620x1024, but this would be lagged with any SLI of 8800 cards.

    Instead of going SLI, use that money for a better screen, then think about SLI ;)
  3. 8800 GTS 320 in SLI compared to 8800GTX, check this out:

    Agree. It's worthless on a 17".

    Def go with a better screen at least a 22" for your setup. We have similar systems, how are your temps on your 6000+ my idle on both cores average 42c load 52 c. what cooler are you using. This is a screen size to think about below and compare it to yours...
