Default Re: GTX 285 vs 8800 GTX SLI in Crysis

I told myself after these results to wait until my 8800s could not handle games at a playable (30fps+) framerate. As for lost money, you lose money as soon as you buy a video card like an automobile. That's understood as soon as I sign the line and hit accept.
Dude, you could have sold both your GTXs with a good chance of recuoping all your monies back from having bought the GTX285 while doing something at the same time. Giving you a better game play experience, less heat and less power usage while doing it. I'd have kept the GTX285 and sold the 2 GTXs myself.
