I recently had my old 8800 gt card quit on me and am looking into a few options. I am able to pick up a pair of 8800 gt alpha dog cards for a good price, but am also considering a single gtx 560 ti. Any major advantages or downfalls to either setup? Thanks in advance!

Well, generally the 8800GT's ran and still run pretty hot, and also don't cool well. Also, I wouldn't buy used cards, because you don't know what they've been through in terms of temperature and abuse. You can't get a video card carfax.......videocardfax :) 

The 8800GT though if they fully worked and were well taken care of, would be good performers.

The 560Ti is surely more expensive than the 8800GTs, yet would be cooler, use less power, and perform better.

What I would get? Neither. I would go for the 7850, as its the same price as the 560Ti and is quicker, while it also uses less power.

The 560 would DESTROY to 8800GT's.

The 560 can do DX11 too :D 

The 560' uses less power, and is cooler and quiet'er.
