Anyways, enough chit-chat, I'm building my PC for the first time, I got these things:
AMD X2 Athlon 64 +6000
500 GB HDD
4GB Patriot RAM
1000W Ultra power supply (hey, might as well, wanna water-cool some day)
Samsung SyncMaster 226BW
Here's the thing, I wanna buy a 8800 GTX now, and then once I get enough money some day, I'll buy the other one. But I found this sweet deal on this one:
Bfg Geforce 8800GTX Oc 600MHZ 768MB 1.8GHZ GDDR3 Dual DVI-I Hdtv Out Hdcp DIRECTX10 Video Card
Now this is an Overclocked version, if I wanna SLI in the future, do I have to buy the EXACT SAME CARD, or can I just buy a 8800GTX that isn't OC and SLI that. What if I can't find the exact same one later in 2 months? Did I screw up my SLI opportunity?
I'm no pro in all of this, I've actually just recently discovered that mobo is the cool way to say it on the web, that's how new I am, I used it and I'm happy
Thanks boyz and galz for any feedback!
SLI really isn't worth it with cards like the Ultra out. SLI is handy for people who run their systems on large tvs or on 24" monitors are larger.
You can mix and match two cards like a ultra and a gtx but the gtx will be downclocked to gtx speeds but this is something hasn't been successful.
