2560x1600 with 4xAA I get fairly solid 58-60 fps with 8800gtx OC BFG's in SLI - was getting about 30ish with just one maybe around 40 at times - so recently added a second and shot way up
I'm curious as to if the single 280gtx would be better overall or just the two 8800gtx sli'd would be best to stick with -
Can unload those both to a friend or Ebay close to what a single 280gtx would be -
I prefer single cards in the case and finally went with the 8800gtx sli for AoC at 2560 -
What to do now , definitely dont want to drop in framerates and the Firingsquad article specifically says 8800gtx sli beat the single 280gtx on most things - especially in that DX10 bench
"In our testing though a pair of GeForce 8800 GTX cards running in SLI was generally faster than one GeForce GTX 280."
It's been said plenty of times that the max FPS from 8800GTX's is higher, but in most cases I saw higher minimum FPS from a single GTX 280.
The minimum FPS stuff convinced me - my wife ordered me an Evga GTX 280 FTW today. BTW - MWave has the GTX 280 in stock
