    old tech.

    Things have moved on.

    Sell your 7800 GTX and get a faster 7900 GT instead for around 30 quid difference!

    Yeah they stopped making the 7800's when the 7900's were released, only ones left will be the ones still in stock at retailors, if you can find any.

    The 7800 GT is a great card. Thing is, i have only had mine for a couple of weeks and i am going to sell it now to get a 7900 GTX!! :D

    Tbh in most cases SLI isn't worth it, if you want more power, flog the card you have and put that money towards getting the fastest single card around, it will be less noisey, draw alot less power, put out less heat and probably give nearly the same performance.

    two 7800 GTX will destroy a single 7900 GT in sli.

    but the bug is established.

    sell the 7800 GTX and get a 7900 and sli later :p

    I seem to hear the advise, SLI it later, but each time I go to do just that it ends up being cheaper and better to flog the old card and buy 1 new next gen card. Unless you can afford 2 x gfx cards at one time I dont see the point anymore (can you tell I'm miffed at not being able to get hold of an XFX 7800GT Extreme Edition?!?!?)

    Would have to be a 7800GT, and for the price i would apparantly be better selling it and putting the funds towards a new 7900GT.

    Definitely agree with that. :) I think SLI is good for first time buyers... i.e. when you're purchasing a system with dual card setup straight away. I personally will never go SLI - one reason because it's ultra expensive (1 high-end card cost a bomb as it is)... and the next generation single card is often newer technology and performs near enough what 2 older cards would... plus it holds its value better. :) Just my opinion. :) I prefer upgrading from mid-range card to mid-range card... though I can't really class my 7900GT as mid-range. :p

    Oh sorry I was going with THE OP.

    Yes sell your 7800 GT and get another card 7900 GT for around 30 quid more depending on what you get for it.

    Yup when DX10 G80 comes out you'll have to be quick in getting another 7900 for SLi as they will be ceased as well when that happens, Jan time i think.
