Hi guys! I would like to ask for an opinion from our expert guys out there, Which would be better? Having 2 graphics card using SLI/Crossfire technology or 1 stronger video card?
I have a GeForce 9800 GT 1GB graphics card and im thinking of buying another one, or maybe buy a new one like GeForce GTX 295?
Is it worth it to buy a new graphics card maybe every 2-3 years (till I have a quad graphics card, and of course this card will be much cheaper by then) or just buy the latest graphics card on that time?
The idea of moving up to quad graphics cards is not a good idea though. The 9800GT will be discontinued in a few months--making this impossible. Also, running a setup like that would require a massive power supply--and not support DX 11. There is something to be said for newer technology.
I think you would get the best performance with an ATI 5850($300ish) or the upcoming 5830 ($200-250ish) which are superior to Nvidia's offerings. You could then use the 9800GT as a dedicated Physx card to support Nvidia-optimized games.
