9800 GT SLI

I can get two 9800GT's for SLI. On the Tomshardware video card charts two 9800GT's would give me a bit more performance than one GTX 260. But the cards are Dell's 9800GT's. Are they at all a quaility video card? I can get them both for about $100. Or a new GTX 260 for about $180. Thanks for the advice. Chart I used was

Thats the Res. Ill be playing at with high quality.

Any idea what I might get in Crysis as well? I have seen vids with two 9800GT's in SLI at even higher resolution with a decent FPS.

My system

Phenom II X2 3.1GHz (Will unlock to quad core and OC with a new cooler)
2Gb DDR3 1066
MSI NF750-G55

  1. If your PSU is up for SLI it is good value.

    It is. Antec Earthwatts 650W SLI certified PSU. Talked him down to $80 now. I was just curious as to whether Dell video cards were worth it. Or whoever makes Dells cards.
  3. They are just reference Nvidia cards no better no worse. For $80 you have a very good deal and your PSU is good.
  4. For the price that is an awesome deal. Especially if you got 1 gb cards, but 512s would be ok too.

    If the 260 were the same price it would be a better option--but $80 for 2 9800GTS is a way better price-performance ratio.

    Have you considered boosting your ram? 2 GB is a little low for Vista/7.

    Yes I will in the future. That was all I could get with my current budget.
