8800gts 320mb SC SLI vs. 9800gx2 Tags: Graphics Cards Graphics Last response: October 26, 2008 11:49 PM in Graphics & Displays Share gripr October 26, 2008 9:57:14 PM Hi guys, I need your opionions and expertise. My system: CPU: Intel Core 2 Duo, E4500 OC 2.99 GPU: eVGA GeForce 8800 GTS (SC) PSU: Enermax INFINITI 650 RAM: Corsair 2x1GB DDR2, 667MHz HDD: Western Digital Raptor X 150GB x2 OS: MS Vista Ultimate, 64 bit Display: Samsung 245BW I am debating on buying my friends card (8800 gts 320 sc) for $75 and going SLI or go with the 9800 gx2. What would I gain if I chose one or the other? Would it be a huge difference? Please note I am planning on building a new system sometime next year (probably summer) and would need my current system to be able to get by with farcry2 and crysis until then. I know this is my first post on the forum and I should have takent he time to introduce myself, but I have a limited amount of time to decide if I want the 8800 or not. Any help would be appreciated. Thank you!

Get the answer L1qu1d October 26, 2008 10:24:34 PM well the 8800 GTS 320 is out performed most of the time by the 9600 GT 512 (which kills the 320 with AA). The 9600 GT sli is slower than 8800 GT sli, and 8800 GT sli is slower than the 9800 GX2 so your getting alot of performance out of 1 card, more than 2 8800 GTS 320s and also not have to occupy 2 slots. Plus it runs on the more energy efficient G92 chip gripr October 26, 2008 10:27:36 PM Thanks L1qu1d.
