Hi evri1

I've got a 8800GTX sitting on a DFI LP DK 790FX-M2RS and I'm About To buy another 8800gtx(identical) But its just struck my mind.

Thanks 4 reply guys. I dont think i'm prepared to dissemble my w/c loop just to put another 8800 tbh.

Just wait until my brand new phenom II build later this year. Till then I shall Cope With 20fps on crysis

Lookin forward to the 4890 though.WHAT A GPU!!!

Thanks Again.

Buy a motherboard with a nvidia chipset so that way you can go sli. But for core i7 the x58 chipset support both crossfire and sli

a 4890 would be your better choice mate as you could add another later, which would destroy the two 8800's

So Should I just go for 2 4890's instead of a whole new rig? (Thinking of cheaper options )

Thinking this because ive got the 790fx chipset which is still pretty good.
