Hey guys im just looking to get some honest opinions. I am currently using 2 Nvidia geforce gts 450 cards connected via sli, and I have been trying to decide if i should spend the money to upgrade my cards.

If i do upgrade i also need to decide whether to get 2 lower grade cards in sli or xfire or spend bigger and get the single card. I run my monitor and also have a hdmi channel on the tv both with hdmi cables and im not sure if ill get the same setup off 1 card.

Cheers guys
