u underestimate the 6800GS, theres no way a 7800gt is better than 2 of them, if u want a good card that will last a fair amount of time then go for a card in the 7*** series otherwise go for the 6800GS and it will last at least a year

Do note though gaming_freak, that not all games work on SLI, and most never perform double the performance when turned on.

This makes recommending SLI to every user unworthy, though having the capability is fine, but saying 2x 6800 will beat a single 7800 is a bit much, considering the above.

Yet, I'm sure in some situations it some what would be.

Abit IP35 Pro / Q6600 G0 / Zalman 9700 / 8800GTS 640mb / 4x 2GB Corsair XMS / X-FI Xtreme M / 1x 1TB / Antec 900 / Logitech Z-5500 / Samsung 20inch
