  1. good cept for HDD (low brand knwon for errors and unreliability) and PSU is of really cheap quality.
  2. The one that is already built will perform better because 2x8800GTs in SLI beat 1 HD 4850 or even 1 HD 4870.

    Not true.
  4. yes actually its true, since 2 8800 GTs actually take on 1 280 GTX lol

    Look at this, the 9600 GT in sli beats 1 280 GTX and 4870, and we all kno that the 8800 GT is a stronger card than the 9600 GT:)



    And here we see the 8800 GT in sli losing slightly to the 280 GTX, but winning against the 4870:)




    Sigh...ppl just talk out of their @ss:)

    plz read some reviews.
  6. Def go the 2 x 8800GT SLI
  7. why go for 2 8800 gts when u can go for 2 4850s for about 30 $ more?
  8. ive alrready created a thread abou this.... 8800GT sli frequently beats a GTX280...google around before you start talking s#@t shanire...

  10. There is no doubting that SLI 8800GT's/GTS's are awesome combos. It's amazing how cheap you can get them for.
  11. My head is spinning because of all the literature on the 9800x2, 4870, 8800gt, 280, and 260. Take away Crysis, what would be the best setup? I don't want the power company to buy me dinner but including SLI and Crossfire and not including it, what would be a good setup for the highest framerates (and keep FSX happy) and is anything coming soon (as in the next few months) that I should look for? I was also lookign at the E8500 but I see the E8600 is out...more headaches lol
  12. +1 paul i keep saying that url as well and yet ppl still ask...
  13. oi mike dont get teh E8500...its like $100 more than the 8400 and its wat .16 of a GHz faster?? you could overclock the E8400 to 3.6 without a voltage change much less a measly .16!! dont waste ya money :pfff:
  14. Damn im wishing i got an SLI board now, i want to see how good my 8800gt OC does with another one. Beasty i bet.
