New PCI 2 Video Cards

Recommended Posts

Hi all, I am thinking of going dual 512 PCI 2 GeForce 8800 cards on my new ASUS Striker Maximus Extreme MOBO. Are these new cards faster than the 768 PCI express 16 cards? Thank's From Jim

Hello Jim,Test have shown that 2 GTs in SLI, are slightly faster than a single GTX, HOWEVERCouple of things, the performance outcome depends greatly on the resolution you use whilst gaming, the actual games you use and your wallet/future plans.What resolution do you use?Regards,

Hi, Thanks for the reply:-) I use 1600x1200x32. For now I use CF9. I am gearing up for a quad core ddr3 rig.

Hey Jim,This is just my POV, I'd opt for a single GTX, you can always add a GTX down the road when they get cheaper. You'll have more VRAM than two GTs, which should help when games start demanding more and more VRAM to cache their evergrowing texture sizes.Regards,
