Which option is going to last me longer before i'll need to upgrade again?

If your mobo supports crossfire, consider dual HD5770s for about $280 as well, which will last you longer. Will knock the socks off of 9800GTX's. What's your processor/power supply? | Report abuse knightbanner March 15, 2010 8:21:03 PM I haven't built the machine yet, but I'm strongly considering A Phenom II x4 3.2ghz. The power supply I purchase will depend on the card(s) I buy, I'll get whatever I need. | Report abuse knightbanner March 15, 2010 8:24:12 PM Also, might going ahead and buying dual gtx 260s be worth the $200+ difference in price? | Report abuse shadow187 Graphics card Master March 15, 2010 8:35:12 PM Nonono, grab dual HD5770's for only $280. Dual GTX260 is $400, which an HD5870 (single card, mind you) will absolutely crush. | Report abuse Register or log in to remove Ask the community Publish Tom's Hardware>Forum>Graphics & Displays>Dual GTX 9800s, or Single GTX 260> Related ressources: ForumGTX 260 or Dual 9800 GTX +'s?
