Hi there,

I recently had to RMA an evga 8800gtx and evga kindly sent me back a 9800gtx+ 1gb. About a month ago I picked up a couple 9600gt's based on some benchmarks I ran. My question is which one should I keep? I like to use dual monitors, but that takes a backseat to high FPS in games such as Far Cry 2, Lotro, WoW, and any other future release.

I am disappointed in the limitations on SLI that I thought would have been resolved by now such as v-sync, dual monitors, and game compatibility.
So I ask, which one should I keep and which should I sell? Any advice would be very helpful!

Single card is always the way to go if possible.

What resolution are you using?

Single card is still the most stable way to go and it`s performance is not tied to driver updates or profiles which can dry up without warning.

the single card, single gpu solution is inherently less hassle. the 9800 GTX+ is a nice card. i would keep it.
