I installed the GeForce 9800 GTX over a year ago and it's been good. I wanted to step up my graphics, so I installed the ASUS GTX 480 (SLI). No major improvements. Shouldn't I see a significant difference for 500.00?
If I were to swap out my static cat shooting machine gun avatar for an animated version, would I see an increase in forum point scoring? How about if I were to SLI the static cat, for I guess a stereoscopic effect, would that beat out an animated version? Would I need special 3D glasses to view the stereoscopic avatar? Can my PSU handle it?
OK, Veteran. I'm back. I had forgotten where the Avatar came from and used it elsewhere. I'll change it soon. The 9800GTX+ is about a year old. I wanted to combine it with my new ASUS GTX 480 in SLI. Did that. Boot time quadrupled, no noticeable difference in graphics. I took the 9800GTX out, running the 480 solo. The Cooler Master V8 is sitting on top of an Intel Core i7 920 Nehalem 2.66 (not Overclocked). 700W PSU. Oh, screen res 1920x1200
