I have a friend who has a single 9800GX2. He acts as if his e-peen could wrap around the world. Please, please do not let this happen to you.

I don't like mushrooms, so I only ate the snails.

I dont know about quad sli with 2 9800gx2s. Im sure scaling to the 3rd and 4th gpu would be horrible.

I had a really bad experience with a 9800GX2 but drivers may have made it better now (this was around the 4870's birth)

lol i didnt realise the 9800gx2 came with the ego boost chip instaled.

anywho i think im gunna use both of them for now as only using one would be pretty much the same as using my 2 8800gt's i can always sell em down the line.
when i get my hands on them ill post some 3dmark scores with my 8800gt sli, one gx2 and then sli and we will find out if it has all been worth it.

Its from a friend im paying £100 for the 2 so very cheap.


Well I have been looking at getting a 9800gx2 for running folding at home on. For the price you are getting the 9800gx2's for I would say you can't go wrong.

If your friend still has these and your are not interested in them I could be interested.
