Hello,
I can't play a new game with out it being choppy. I haven't stayed up on the good cards to get for a couple years. I want an inexpensive card, but that still will play games decent.

I was wondering if I should do SLI with two GeForce 9500 GT cards or go with one GeForce GTS 450 (Fermi) Card. I have never tried to do SLI and don't know how much trouble I will have to get it to work.

There is absolutely zero point in SLi'ng 9500GT's, a single GTS450 would be wayyy better.

No problem, depending on urgency and budget it might be worth waiting for a couple of weeks as the 4xx series is being EOL'd rather quickly it seems.

Thanks for the advice. I think I can wait a couple of weeks and see what the prices are. Would you suggest a different card at about $125.

For $125 you'd probably be looking at a gts450 or hd 5770. What's the rest of your system look like? (resolution too).

For your system and power supply, a GTS 450 would work well.
