Hi there,
I've just put an XFX 8800GTX in my system (up from a 256mb 6800GS) following a complete rebuild of my system :) 
Am loving Crysis with the GTX, but just wondered if there would be any benefit in going to SLi with another GTX. Will this allow me to run Crysis with the "Very High" settings and if so will it really make much difference?
I currently run my games @ 1280*1024, but should be buying a 22" monitor soon and will then run my games at it's native 1680*1050.
Waste of money or benefit? I can't help thinking its the former!

Short and sweet, I like it :) 
I'm jsut going to keep an eye on eBay and see if I can pick one up cheap.
I don't have an SLi mobo so would buy another (mines a month old! :D ) but if I could get one cheap, I think thats the only way I'd go SLi :) 
Anyone else?

Agreed with ramo, especially if you would have to invest in a new mobo.

Yep, far better to sell the GTX and buy two GT's.

I'd just replace the video card some time in 2009 or 2010. One GTX can handle 1680x1050 very nicely, you don't need two.
