FSX doesn't utilize SLI very well and in some cases it can worsen performance so a single card is usually better. (260 (not 250 = 9800) 280, etc)RegardsPeterH

In terms of predicting FSX performance, look at memory bandwidth (GB/sec) as a good indicator.Hence 260 vs 250 in the previous post.SLI or dual GPU cards do not help. Stick with fast single GPU cards.
