I have an 8800 GTS and a P7N Diamond (780i) motherboard. I was thinking of getting another 8800 GTS to put them in SLI, but currently have a dual monitor setup.
I know that SLI will only support a single monitor. I have heard about a solution involving using an ATI card as well as the SLIed nVidia cards.
I didn't know if anyone had any experience with this, but I may try it in the near future. I was wondering if anyone knew of a good ATI card that can easily support 1680x1050 and run without additional power from the PSU - just using the power from the board. I will be using that monitor for no gaming at all (as the other one will be running from the SLIed video cards).
I also was wondering if anyone has heard any rumors about price drops for the 8800 GTS in the near future - with the release of the 9800 GTX+ and the further drops in prices of the GTX 280/260.
I hear that the 3650 is like an in-between for the XT and the pro. I can find the 2xxx series cards for pretty cheap and they seem like they would be plenty good for basic 22" monitor use (even dual monitor it seems).
