If you want the best then it must be PCI-E socket surely?

I think the very best you can buy is the Nvidia 9800GTX. I don't know if the 9800GX2 counts as its basically 2 8800GT's strapped together? At this time i haven't read about the newest cards from nvidia so they may be faster still. However the really high end cards increase in price hugely for little gain in framerate.

I would still opt for an 8800GT though, still pretty near top of the range and very good value for money. Prices should be around £120-130.

some games are slower in sli or crossfire, plus there are driver issues. you may get better framerates than a single card if you are getting a large monitor but if you are getting a 22" or less one really good card is best.
