Video card comparison

i see in the video card charts http://www.tomshardware.com/charts/gaming-graphics-charts-q3-2008/3DMark06-v1.1.0-3DMark-Score,794.html some ATI card names with CF and some Nvidia card names with SLI- does this mean that these entries represent 2 video cards together instead of the single one?

i am also looking at the graphics card hierarchy chart http://www.tomshardware.com/reviews/radeon-geforce-gtx,2270-6.html and i am wondering how i can make an accurate comparison between my current setup (2x BFG GeForce 7800GTX 512MB Overclocked SLI) and a couple of other cards listed- the Radeon HD 4670 and GeForce 9800GT.

any help would be greatly appreciated.

thanks.

  1. Is this for an upgrade you are planning or just curiosity? If it`s for an upgrade please give us the rest of your specs including PSU and monitor size.

    Do n`t go by Toms charts, they are notoriously inaccurate, apart from this:

    And are you looking to compare your rig against the listed cards in SLI/CF or as single cards?

    i'm just asking out of curiosity for now, with the possibility of an upgrade later on.

    i'm looking to compare the video card setup i have now against the cards listed as singles cards only.
  3. Neither single card will be an upgrade, they`ll both be slower.
    What are the rest of your specs though?
