I'm not worryed about price diff. I just wanna know if it would be better to get two of the one I already have or get the new 9800. I wanna be able to buy crysis and play it well. Thanks

You would be able to play Crysis well either way you went.

But pure performance wise, a single 9800 GX2 is faster than an 8800GT SLI setup.

Would it be able to play it well though? 30fps+. I wonder how well it would play with just my one video card.

I don't know specific fps, but my son plays it quite nicely on high settings with his single 8800GT. He has no complaints.

I haven't loaded the game lately to try it on my MSI 8800GT. The 9800 GX2 will play it nicely even in DX10.
