2x9800GTX, or one 285? Tags: Graphics Cards Monitors SLI Graphics Last response: April 15, 2009 2:38 AM in Graphics & Displays Share leo2kp April 14, 2009 7:23:40 PM Thinking about my next upgrade path. Going from a 19" VX922 to probably dual-display 22" monitors. I have a 9800GTX. SLI the 9800GTX, or go for a single 285? Just as an FYI, I don't plan on running any games on both monitors at once (if it's avoidable). Also, I have a PC P&C 750watt PSU so I would be fine for power if I SLI'd.

Bluescreendeath a b U Graphics card April 14, 2009 10:59:02 PM I don't think you can run two GTX285s in SLi with that power supply. The max he can do is two GTX260s in SLi.
