Hiya i own a Leadtek WinFast GeForce 8800GTS 640MB card. I just got the offer to buy a 1year old identical one for about $270 (The new ones are sold for $430here) so that i can use SLI.
My question is then, is it worth the money? And will this setup last for a while? My hopes with this is that i wont need to buy a new card for at least 2 years. So i'm not really in need of 2cards today but was thinking that it could be a good investment ...
My Rig is listed below.
*Chassi - Zalman Fatality * *PSU - Antec TruePower Quattro 850W *Mobo - Asus P5N32-E * Ram - Corsair XMS2-6400 2x2048 *CPU - Intel Core 2 Duo E6850 3.0GHz * OS - winxp proffesional *
Sounds like a pretty good deal...In the short run you get to play at 1920x1080 when it really counts on your 42"....and in the long run you just might get that "hey I can still play this new game coming out pretty well" feeling a couple more times.
Having said that, I'd remember that a new product is around the corner , and something like 400 or 500 bucks will buy you something that will smoke your SLI setup.
