I am thinking on upgrade my system, right now I have 2 geforce 6800GT on SLI and was thinking on buying a 7900GTX 512 Mgs or 2 7900GT to do SLI again, what do you think is the best option? "uber" single card? 2 not so "uber" on SLI?

the sli 7900GT's are probobly the fastest, the 7900GTX is probobly the best overall, the extra ram, the faster clocks, go with the 7900GTX and if you need more you can always upgrade to sli, or maby just go with the 7950GX2

The sales for the 7900's have gone down after the release of the 7950, so you might want to shop around. If it were me I'd go with a 7950 GX2, its cheaper then buying two 7900 cards and it's faster unless you get two 7900 GTX cards which will cost you double what a 7950 would.

A single 7950GX2 (if your mobo has the support for it).

if your only going 1280x1024, go with a single 7900GT, thatll let you max everything out at that res

Two 7900GT is going to be faster in nearly ever game then a 7900GTX ,but a single 7900GT Sc should be a good increase over the 6800GT.
