I Have a(n)
Athlon 64 X2 2.6GHz
4Gb RAM (just upgraded from 2)
NVidia 8600GT 512Mb
and am considering getting another 8600GT for SLI - it seems like that'd be the most cost effective upgrade option.
Does that sound like sense?
However i can only find 8600GT cards with different memory, i could get one with 1Gb GDDR2 which i understand would just dumb itself down and run like another 512Mb card - but what difference would it make that my current graphics card has GDDR3 memory? can i even still SLI-them? i cant find any info on this anywhere...
Hello and welcome to the forums
Before answering your SLI questions,i would strongly recommend you not to SLI your 860GT,because 2 8600GT's still won't perform well in games,so get a single fast card(like HD 5770/5850 or GTX 470)if your budget allows
