Re: Which is better dual 6600GT, or single 6800GS
I have been running two 6800GS cards for some time now. Right after the review I would not recommend purchasing the 6800GS for SLI. Now, I don't know if my recommendation was all that good. The single card performs very well at 1280x1024 but performs significantly better in SLI when playing games such as FEAR and BF2 at that resolution.
Yes, the 7800GTX is a better option, performance-wise, as you can go to higher resolutions with settings maxed. On the money side however, two GS's for $340+ USD is a lot lighter on the pocket book than $400+ for a GTX.
