2x9800GTX, or one 285?

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.

  1. The SLI 9800 GTX would beat the 285..But i rather you go for a single 285 for now and SLI another 285 down the road later because the 9800 GTX is going to start getting a little out dated soon.
  2. 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.
  3. no he can

    I am running 2 285 slied with a pc p&c 750 with no problem. There is pleanty of headroom if i really wanted to add a card, but if I did that I would still upgrade psu.
