I've been out of the building game for quite some time and i'm trying to get my stuff straight before i make a commitment. Any input is greatly appreciated.
I'm starting a new build which most likely will include running an i7 920 cpu and a yet undetermined mobo. Long story short, i have a younger brother who was a professional gamer for quite a few years and during that span he's collected an assortment of parts that i will utilize.
So i have one brand new 512mb 8800GTS laying here. My intial thought was to just purchase a 2nd one and run them in SLI. With DX11 now and the new wave of games that are sure to be on the horizon in the next year would i be better off just waiting to find a Radeon 5850 when more become available and then adding a 2nd one down the line when its necessary?
What i'm trying to figure out is if i'm handicapping myself in todays gaming market. My gaming consists of games like WOW/WAR/L4D/CS:S
I'll be running both cards utilizing a BFG Tech 800w psu.
