Hello,
I have been currently using an 8800gt for a couple of years now, and it has been a very good card. However, i recently played the just cause 2 demo and it is starting to show it's age. I would save up for a newer graphics card, but the problem is i will be going to university in just over a year anyway, and so i will be leaving this computer at home and probably take a laptop. So i dont think its worth my money buying a new card, as they are all pretty expensive at the moment.

What i was thinking is buying another 8800gt form scan.co.uk for 70 quid just to tide me over for the next year. I have been out of the loop for quite a while but am now getting back into pc gaming, so i thought i would ask a respected community first on whether this is a good move before buying!

Many thanks on any responses.

Pc Specs:
Motherboard- Asus P5N-E SLI
Graphics Card- 8800GT (Club 3d)
Processor- Q6600 @ stock (2.40 GHZ)
650W PSU
Ram- 2GB Corsair XMS2 800mhz

I really want to get as cheap as i can get away with, and my resolution is 1680x1050.

What's your budget and monitor resolution?

If you do get another GT your PSU may crap out, what brand is it?

I've seen cheap 650w PSU's fail to run 8800GT's in SLi.
