Default Help :)

Hi guys, I was saving up a little for another 8800GTS to go SLI. But... two days ago I broke my damn phone. It is not fixable, and now, I have a dilemma

Sony Ericsson W910i vs GeForce 800GTS 512

At the minute I'm using K700i. I can't really make the decision, I hope you guys will help me.

Get the GTS Get a cheap ass phone for a bit. You'll get more 'propper' use from your card.

SLI FTW

What are you going to use more? Personally as long as the phone works I don't give a damn. I use a crappy Nokia BRICK PHONE 1231134 w/ monochrome display. I'd get computer parts over a phone any day.

I'd go for the phone.

SLI's good and all, but are there any games that your system is struggling to run? If there's not, you've really got to weigh up which is going to be of more benefit - a slightly better benchmark score (with realworld framerates still mostly capped by the vsync), or a phone that you'll be proud to pull out when you swap numbers with a girl?

I decided to buy 8800GTS, I realised that K700i does all I need, texts and calls, that's about it
