Right now I am still running my 8800gtx sli rig. How much faster would a 9800 gx2 sli be? Would that run on my current motherboard, PS, etc......see sig.

I'd wait until GT200 and SLI those :) That way you'd still get 1GB texture memory, the GX2 you'll always be limited to 512mb texture memory... which is already *almost* insufficient. I'd say for future games like Rage, 512MB memory will not be enough to make it run on high.

How much slower you mean. Keep your gtx's until G200.
Or are you talking quad sli? Even then i wouldnt bother, driver still sucks at quad SLI

2 8800GTX are as fast as a single 9800GX2 so no i would not upgrade.

Yeah - I was thinking Quad....even if you go "quad" you'll still only have 512mb effective memory. wait for GT200 :)

Sounds like that is the consensus. When will the 200s be out?
