do you have a link to the 7800GS co Superclocked card he is looking at? I thought they were AGP cards? Unless your friend has an AGP/PCI-e m/board there is no choice

EDIT: Unless he hasn't decided on a board yet I guess, regardless of that the 7600GT's in SLi would be the better choice.

And yeah, it is an AGP card.

7600+7600=15200

Or

7800=7800.



No, im just kidding

But really, The 7600 is an amazing card. I own one.. And two would be more then enough for anyone. Unless your a professional gamer.. Which I doubt he is.

Sell the card, use the money for the m/board & GT's in SLi

Yeah, he is selling it.. But selling that one card won't pay for the mobo and cards.
But, I was just asking.
IMO, the 2 GT's are way better. He just wanted to make sure.

I don't see why they wouldn't be enough for professional gamers. It's not like the games require better hardware if you are a professional. And 2x 7600 should get you a good fps on any game.
