Hi there...i ha a pc with this configuration: AMD Opteron 165 OC@ 2.7ghz, MB ASUS A8N SLI-SE NF4, 2*1GB Kingston HyperX DDR400 CL2, 1*HDD Seagate 500GB 32MB cache, 1*8800GT MSI 512MB DDR3, 1900mhz memory clock...my question to you guys is that can I add another 8800GT vga in SLI mode even if it's not the same MSI vga?...for ex: BFG 8800GT - 1800mhz? (my MSI runs at 1900)....would they run together nicely without problems?...if YES, wich of these video cards should I choose from:
- XFX Geforce 8800GT 512Mb Alpha Dog XXX Factory Overclocked 512Mb 1925Mhz
- eVGA GeForce 8800GT 512 MB Super Clocked
- Gigabyte 8800gt 512mb
- Leadtech 512mb PX 8800GT
(for the moment I can only choose from these 4)

Thank you
IZZI

You could add another 8800GT but I wouldn't if I were you. Is that the s939 Opteron? If so it will most likely choke when faced with the job of having to supply data to the GPU's, my 939 dualie did.

Yes, it's the 939 opty....years ago I had 2*7600 GT SLI Mode, and they ran considerably better than a single 7600GT.....now I don't know what to say...my budget is limited to £60 (~$100)

I was running SLi'd 7900GT's on mine and they were fine but when I replaced them with a pair of 8800GT's I was rewarded with a proper example of a CPU 'bottleneck' because @ 16 x10 resolution every game became a slideshow and OC'ing the CPU to the max just resulted in a slightly quicker slideshow.

It is worth the shot but you won't see the full power of those cards.

Yes it is worth it, yes just so long they have the same memory like two 512mb instead of 1gb and 512mb in sli. Don't worry about clocks they haven't synchronized since the stone ages.
