Solidzdawgyea or if your strapped for that much cash get a 6800 GS. like 100 fps high settings in HL2

The 6800GS is a good card, but can't touch the 7800GT/X that he was considering. My suggestions is get a 7800GT and another gig of ram.

IMO getting a 6800GT SLI setup right now would be a waste, you would be better off buying a 7800GT now, and then possibly buying another later if you need more performace.

Benchmarks have shown 2 6800GT's in SLI give out more FPS than a single 7800GTX but the amount of heat it will give off would be a lot then the pricing would come out to the same as a single 7800GTX. Only time it be a good idea to go SLI is if you already have a card that can do SLI.

Just get a 7800GT or GTX 2GB of ram and you be set for a long, long time.
