Default GTX 280 vs SLI 8800GTX

Hey I was just wondering why no reviews really compare the 280 to 8800GTX's in SLI, it seems to me that they could beat them, or at least match them.

I have an EVGA 8800GTX ACS3 KO and I was considering selling and buying either a 260 or 280, but I think I might just wait until I find a matching card on ebay or something and then get that if the 8800GTX can indeed match the 280.


I think its kind of a waste to sell this card that I love and bought for $620 last year for a measly ~$200. My GTX can still play pretty much everything on the highest as everyone else who has one knows, there are no games that look to push the envelope... so I think the better option is to go SLI with a matching card. Especially if DX11 comes out in 2009 or 10, meaning these cards are obsolete anyways.

Let me know what you guys think. Sorry for the huge essay and some of it probably isn't thought out well... Im really tired. Happy 4th!

Well this question has already been answered a few times before, but I'm nice so I'll answer it again. 2 8800GTX cards are slightly faster than 1 GTX 280. Check the offical reviews thread as there should be some pictures posted and a few links.

If the card is already good enough for everything then there really isn't a need to upgrade.

EDIT: I'll make it even easier. Here is the review that has the tests in it.
