And i have a mobo that supports SLI and Crossfire so if some day ATI gets ahead i can still use there cards.
the reason i don't want to go into the GTX 200 series is because there to fricken expensive i cant afford to go out and buy 2 $500 GTX 280's i'm 13 i don't have that kind of money.
your mistaken dude.
ATI might not be the cream of the crop but their DAMN close, there cheaper too.
Also, a single card solution will ALWAYS beat a SLI or Crossfire setup, especially when your on a budget. Some games cant even use SLI, it can be a nightmare to setup, the risk of errors increase dramatically.
Im not saying SLI\Crossfire setups are bad, but on a $300 budget there is a much better alternative
get that instead
your going to have to spend an extra $100 to get just a little bit of extra performance out the 9800GTX SLId. And your going to have to spend all the time making sure it works right, also , two high end cards like the 9800GTX would be very taxing on your power situation unless you have a very good PSU.
Get the GTX 260 if you "have" to go nVidia. you WONT regret it
