Okay so I have a question as to which would perform best. I've got a 2.93 i7(be jealous), 6GB DDR 1600, and a 1000W PSU. Which setup should I go with for my video card? 2 x 896MB 448-bit EVGA cards 260 with SLI or 1 1GB 512-bit EVGA card 280?
I basically want to get the most out of crysis and farcry!

This would be the SLI 260
EVGA 896-P3-1267-AR GeForce GTX 260 Core 216 Superclocked Edition 896MB 448-bit GDDR3 PCI Express 2.0 x16 HDCP Ready SLI Supported Video Card


This would be the single 280
EVGA 01G-P3-1284-AR GeForce GTX 280 SSC Edition 1GB 512-bit GDDR3 PCI Express 2.0 x16 HDCP Ready SLI Supported Video Card


And just incase a reason is to save a PCIe 2.0 slot, I have 3

Thanks!

SLI 260, without a doubt, unless space is an issue.

If it's just between sli 260's and a 280, definitely sli the 260's.

Definitely go with the 260's in SLi. I just ordered a pair with my new build which should be here in a couple days. Here's some benchmarks from Crysis running a huge ammount of configurations including the single gtx280 1gb and the SLi gtx260's 896mb.

ATI doesn't really compare to the quality of NVidia. With equal cards of course
