2 Smaller graphics cards or one monster?

  lee_robinson1983 13:10 10 Mar 2006

I was wondering is it better too have one awesome graphics cards or 2 mid range ones?

I'm looking at either 1 x 7800GTX or 2 x 6800GS.

The 6800GS option is cheaper.

Any thoughts anyone?

1 monster

You can always get another 7800GTX when the prices fall in the next year

Buying two lower spec cards instead of one moster makes no sense in my humble opinion.

I agree with madboy33... buy one monster card now, and get a huge performance boost down the line when the 7800GTX's drop in price.

One 7800gtx will be noisey, but two 6800gs's will be even worse (unless you fit diff gsf).

Go with the 7800gtx, you will not be dissappointed. And, like JDoki said, you will have the opportunity to upgrade to sli later if you wish.

X1900XT and overclock it yourself rather than pay someone like BFG to do it for you in the cards BIOS.
