I would like some advice on whether to go for 2 x 8800gt 512mb in SLI mode or 1 8800 Ultra. The price is comparable I am just wondering what setup would givethe best results?
Also I am wondering if my power supply is upto the job. I have an X-Power 500W PSU, constant power, that is running a 8800GTS graphic card, 1 x Sony DVD R/W, 1 x LG Blu-Ray - HD DVD combo player/ RW and 2 x Maxtor 250GB Hardrives and a Creative X-Fi Sound Card.
in games where SLI support is available, I would Imagine (i dont know), that the 8800gt/s sli would wipe the floor with the ultra, and probably be cheaper, but I don't know, and also you probably need more power for the SLI, and in games where it's not supported, you only get one 8800 gts's power (although since most new games support it, and the gts is enough for old games...)
The Ultra is just an OCed 8800GTX with a different cooler. It's a G80 GPU, OLD TECH. Still good tech if you have one already, but if you are buying, get the new stuff. It sucks less power and you can run 2 on a 600W PSU that would otherwise only run 1 Ultra.
An yes 2 9600Gt's will beat the pants off a single Ultra.
