I am looking to buy a second 8800GT to use SLI. What do I need to do software wise after I seat the other card and connect them with the 'SLI bridge' or whatever? Will it already work since I have the drivers for the card installed already, or is there special SLI drivers I would need to install?
I've never used SLI so any other advice would be greatly appreciated as well. Thank you very much.
A 4850 is not much of an upgrade. It is in some cases but most its pretty much the same deal under 1680x1050. What you really want to do is buy one 4870. At or below 1680x1050 on a 22 inch with no CPU bottleneck will alow you to run everything on high with decent AA and AF.
