hello all.. well i'm not a complete newb when it comes to PC's But i feel overwhelmed with all the options and information thats out there.. here is my predicament
I'm a gamer and i'm looking to get the best graphics and the best performance i could get.. here is my current rig.
Agreed. Your money would be better spent on a second video card. Your PSU and MB already support that.
ok then well i have another question.. i was reading that my motherboard only supports sli at 8x on both ports will it hurt the performance if i have 2 of those same cards running on SLI at 8X what do you guys recommend? also my Power Supply Is only 650w is that enough juice to run 2 of these video cards?
I don't know how much the 8x+8x issue affects the 8800GT cards, sorry. Still, even if the MB becomes a bottleneck, I think you'll see an improvement. For example an 8800GTX works fine in a PCI-E 1.0 slot at 8x, it only loses a few percentage points of speed.
