See sig, I own one 8800gts 320mb, tomorrow i'm buying either another one for sli or upgrading to a single 8800 gt 512mb evga.

Which do you think would give me the bigger boost in performance?

I'd say the second GTS would give you more performance in SLI-ready games.

such as crysis?

what about memory limits? I never really looked into that aspect, do sli enabled games use 640mb then? Or still only access 320mb? I really don't have any complaint's about this cards performance other than I can tell it's getting memory limited in ut3 games and crysis. (Occasional stutter when loading a detailed scene. )

I'll also be getting either an e8400 or quad 6600, in case you need to factor in cpu limits.

I would definitely lean toward sli if the 640mb is enabled.

nevermind, it seems you can only access one set of video memory at a time, screw that, i'll get a GT.

you can close this mods.

Thanks for the help intel.
