Default Re: I change my mind about the GTX280

What else is new mate? This has been reported by a lot of users with 9800GX2 cards after upgrading to a single 280. Average FPS never offer the real picture. SLIed cards always suffer lower minimums versus a slower on average single card that is faster than a single of the 2 SLIed cards... It has been said time and again, 2 cards does not equal double the frame rate. That's why I said in another post, that if you are faced with a choice between two solutions of the same speed, but one is a single card and the other is two cards together (even if the two cards are slightly faster), the single card will always offer a better experience, in terms of less problems and better gameplay...
