Upgrade to SLi 7600 GTs in 3 yr old system for gaming
Hello All, Just discoverd this forum, appears to have a good community involvement so here's my inquiry; I would like to upgrade the video cards but having ignored the progress of video cards for a few years am not sure which way to go. I run 7600 GTs in SLI with an AMD 64 X2 2.0 GHZ CPU on an ASUS M2N SlI Deluxe board with 2 GB Corsiar Mem, 500 W Antec PSU. I borrowed my son's 9800 GTX+ cards and, wow. But my PSU couldn't take that kind of abuse for long. So what do you suggest that is somewhere in between? I would rather not upgrade PSU but could if need necessary. I use dual LCD screens (22", 19') and play NASCAR, GTR, GT Legends, DOOM3 MOH and COD series and Red Orchestra type games. Thanks in advance for any feedback

GTS 250 is basically the same as 9800GTX+ but not as power hungry. MY guess would be that a single card like that would consume less than the two 7600GT´s.
Get a HD4770, costs less and almost beats the GTS 250, in some games it does and for a bonus, its even less power hungry. Edit: that's assuming you're not going to SLI. You're cpu will likely bottleneck SLi'd cards in most games.
