Which they rarely do and its not the game makers fault either.
I dont know Mike, ive seen huge gains with SLI in games like world in conflict making a res like 1680 or 1920 playable with max settings whereas with a single card you need to lower the res or IQ settings. SLI has much better support than Crossfire, our findings over the last year have certainly verified that. People condemn the TWIMTBP regime but it really does work.
Even games like crysis with SLI can make an unplayable resolution playable. Is it good value for the majority of gamers? no. However I do see a situation where a gamer could buy one 8800 GTS, then 3 months down the line when funds were available could add another, both cards would cost around the same as an ultra. A system now comprising 8800 GTS in SLI should be capable of powering anything for a good 18 months+.
Its not logical for quite a few people but I do see the benefit.
Yep, dual HD3870 X2's here.... just waiting on drivers now
If I could run SLI on my Intel board or if ATi had something worthy I'd probably be running a dual card setup as there are some good deals going around these days. Still, I have no complaints towards my single card; the thing is a total beast and handles 1920 in all games quite well.
HAHA I still have AGP...
I use multiple GPU's on my PC at work: AGP + on-board
I work part time and go to school. So most of my money goes towards gas, food, and necessities. What money I do get saved up, would probably go toward a single card. I'm actually building my little brother a rig for school and light gaming, so I don't actually get any money saved up. lol. BUT, I have started a savings account for a new card haha. My 8800GTS 320mb just does not cut it anymore.
Well... I would like to have a SLI gaming PC, but I use a pretty old mobo... I still use AGP!!!
one gpu is enough, it not worth the hassle of using dual gpus. so I just fine with one gpu.
None now but maybe CrossFire later.
lol i used to use the same board :rofl: never had a problem with it, just wish it was an OC'ing board :bleh:
btw, get rid of it, go PCI-E now, NOW DAMMIT!!
My mate has a core 2 duo and a single 8800gtx water cooled system.
He gets 400fps on the counter strike source stress test.
Sadly I fail to see any benefits from using a quad core system as hardly any games out there benefit from the extra 2 cores. Same with the 2 graphic cards...even if they do use the 2nd graphic card the game will only use a little bit of it.
Still like my 1950 Pro. Haven't seen the need to get anything else for now. I'm not a big gamer but like the occasional shoot 'em up.
I have a Abit AT8 32X with a 1900 Crossfire card and a X1900 XT, Vista HP 64. I can not say I have used it much as it is in the Bedroom the two I use right now are both Crossfire capable but are currently running a single card. If I were to get some cash. I'd like to buy a 3870 X2 for my main rig, put my 3870 in the other rig and add a 3850 in Crossfire.
I have MSI K9A2 in CF and in Platinum and both are Vista 64. COD 4 too.
Nope- still only a 7900GTX.. will probably wait a few cycles, then get another SINGLE top of the line card that is one generation behind or close to it so I don't have to pay 600 bucks for it, but I still get a hell of an improvement in performance for my $$..
That time usually comes about the same time a new mobo/ram/cpu are in the same type of situation.
I have the 7950 GX2, from nVidia, but, I wish I would have waited a bit longer before purchasing this one. I would have gone with the 8800, I think. The 3d graphics scores are off the charts with the GX2, but, the 2d and low power 3d graphics are sub-standard. (Using 3d Mark Pro 2006)
Twin 8800 GT 512"s and lov"in it.
I want to get 2 GPU's, however sadly I cannot afford it. Maybe I will start a telethon to raise money for the "Buy me a SLI setup" fund.
Iam thinking buy another BFG 8800GTS OC 512MB
Should be good enough. But problem is that I have to change my motherboard.
Current on P5W DH Deluxe and it only support Cross-Fire
