Hi guys, just getting back into PC gaming after MANY years away, so doing lots of lurking! Whats the advantage to having 2 graphics cards in your machine? Is it better to have one porky card, or have 2 medium-spec ones?
Well, I don't recommend getting a second card "later" or "down the road".
Many people want to get a second card in a year or so from original purchase, this is a bad choice.
if you buy a 8800GTX now, and want to add a second one to SLI next year, it won't work out well. Why? Because you won't find any 8800GTXs, and a better card will be available for the same price.
