Should I Get Sli Or...

Recommended Posts

i have a 7800gt and want more it is pretty good still...

 

 

but i want more for Rainbow six Vegas

 

 

should I get another 7800gt (refurb for $129) and go SLI? or wait ang get a 8800 FTX. The price is far from $129 and I would rather pay that then get a 8800. Would I see much of a performance difference? Any suggestions?

Do you mean the 8800GTX or 8800GTS?

 

I believe that the 8800GTS and 8800GTX are both faster then 7800GTS in SLI.

yea, but look at the price:performance ration @ fire_storm! 129$ for another 7800GT, but 300$ and above for even a 8800GTS

I added another 7800GT and it works pretty well. Newer games run good and all the AA/AF in older games makes them look much better.

i heard that the 8800 runs better then 7800's in SLI. Also the 8800 has DX10 so it might be better for the long run

just get a 78GT and oc the living hell out of your cpu and gpus :D

 

yes... 8800GTX ranges from slightly faster in FEAR to about twice as fast in Oblivion... but i don't know if that's with 78GT-SLi oc'd as much as mine... depending on how fast you have money coming in though... i'd consider saving up for an 8800 card because of the native rez of your display, and the upcoming games and game engines of 2007 likely to strain the **** out of a 78GT-SLi system...

i miss having my 7800gtx sli setup, but go for it. those cards should be able to handle most things with easy with a good overclock but you wont get anything like the 8 series. 7800gt/gtx sli is pretty good reguardless. enjoy your gaming but do keep an eye out for price drops on the 8 series cards though.

at least wait until the R600 launches, then the 8800 series will drop massively in price IMO.

Anyways, 7800GTs in SLI > all in this situation!

do you even have SLi? 25 to 25% increase? so just 25%

 

no... you can force SLi for games without a profile... i can pretty much double (ie near 100% increase) or get about 60% more fps at minimum with SLi... i can't think of a game where i've got something pathetic like 25% advantage...
