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? m 0 l 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. m 0 l Related resources Dual 512 4850's or a single 1GB 5770/896GTX260? - Forum Dual gts 240 versus single gtx 260 - Forum What single graphics cards are equivalent to 2x GTX 260? - Forum Hi just wanted to know what is better dual gtx 760 or single 780? - Forum single gtx 780 dual monitor?!?!?!? - Forum Can't find your answer ?
