Default Would this GPU SLI'ed be better then this one GPU?

The 1st link is the video card I have now. If I got another one and SLI them how good would it be? I'm not sure how much power SLI adds. Would it be better then this one? Thanks

Foothead, you can correct me on this...but a gts 250 is basically a 9800gt+. And a 9800gt is pretty much a 8800gt in terms of performance. While you may experience better performance with the gts 250 to the 8800gt, two 8800gt in sli I believe would be more powerful.

The 8800GT SLI setup would be faster than a single GTS 250.

GTS 250 = rebadged 9800GTX+

OP, you could beat both setups with a HD 4890, which you can get fairly cheap right now if you find a deal.

But to answer your question, 8800 SLI > GTS 250
