The 2 x 512mb 8800GT sounds like 2 512mb cards set up in SLI mode and do you know if your board will take 2 graphics cards because thats what SLI needs?

There seems to be a lack of 8800GT cards anyway so you might not be able to get one, they are like hens teeth at the moment.

The graphics card is in fact 2, it has 2 8800GT 512mb setup in SLI mode.
I presume you want to know whats better the 2 8800GTs or the 8800GTX and I'm afraid I don't know the answer both would be good but I don't know about the GTX card, the GTS I have heard of but not a GTX version of the card.

click here duplicate thread, this thread is basically the same as the other one, theres no point having 2 on the same subject it just confuses people. And its against the rules. Close one of them down.
