Dual GTX 9800s, or Single GTX 260
Mar 15, 2010, 8:09 PM
Hey here is my choice, I can either get dual GTX 9800s, or a single GTX 260, which should I choose? Which option is going to last me longer before i'll need to upgrade again?

The 9800GTX's will be much more powerful. 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?

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.

Also, might going ahead and buying dual gtx 260s be worth the $200+ difference in price?

Nonono, grab dual HD5770's for only $280. Dual GTX260 is $400, which an HD5870 (single card, mind you) will absolutely crush.
