Hello,

I'm currently using an 8800GTX nVidia card, and am wondering if I would get more benefit from getting the same card and using duel sli or just getting a newer card. Thanks.

Wow, didn't realize how much lower my card was than the newer ones out there... I'm having problems with Warhammer Online in some of the more graphically intense scenarios where there're lots of people in the same area. Granted I'm playing with max resolution and video settings.

One more thing, is it possible to figure out if my processor is what's causing the game to be slow or the graphics card? The processor is AMD Phenom X4 9950, kind of wish I didn't have AM2 socket mobo because the intel chips look like they do much better... http://www.tomshardware.com/charts/desktop-cpu-charts-q...

jshpik1 dont go by toms charts, they arent that accurate. what you should do is search around the net and look at benchmarks for the 8800GTX sli or not and then decide. SLI 8800GTX would be very very fast and you could play all the newest games easily. dont let toms charts confuse you. i had 9800GT in sli but i wanted a faster SINGLE card solution so i got the GTX260 Core216. so just look around then decide.
