This is my quandry - I've got SLIed 8800GT 512MB cards and when I was pondering getting a GTX 275 last year, most of what I saw looked like it'd be a lateral move with negligible performance improvement. I was looking at the comparison charts at Tom's HW and this seems to still be true, but these new 58xx/GTX 4x0 cards seem to be 2-4x better than what I've got. Is this the case or is it like wishiknew's opinion that it wouldn't be that much faster? Thanks.
