Hi im just after a few opinions on my nexed graphics card. Iv got an Nvidia 6800GS and its just starting to struggle with the high end games E.G BF 2142. Im thinking of upgrading it although im not sure weather to buy a hole new graphics card or get another 6800GS to put in SLI. if i was going to get a new graphics card i was thinking around about the Nvidia 7 series top-end Eg 7800/7900 modles so what would be best SLI or new better one? Thanks for any ideas

the 6800GS should be able to play bf2142 without any problems. If u want a new card a 7900GT would be good for the price, or then just wait a while for the dx10 cards. I What are ur other specs?

well that cpu and ram should be more than enough for bf2142 so it's probably the vid card then. And about oc'ing read the guides from here: http://www.computerforums.org/showthread.php?t=40515
and there is 2 of these threads so lets just stop posting in this one and continue on the other thread.
