    It doesn't work that way man....

    there is hybrid power but that works with only 9800 cards.

    Hybrid SLI only works with 8500GT.

    Hybrid power is available only with the 9800 series and above.

    No, it isn't the same. It uses the same core, but that doesn't make it the same card. The PCB of the 9800GTX is designed to allow Hybrid Power, while the 8800GTS' isn't, it is one of the reasons the 9800GTX has a longer PCB than the 8800GTS.

    Is Hybrid SLI better? My HD is Hybrid and it runs faster that my old one.

    I dunno about hybrid hard drives

    but hybrid crossfire and hybrid sli are in infancy stages right now...not that good.

    Hybrid SLI only gives the equiv of a 8600GT or 9600GT if I'm right

    hybrid crossfire only gives the equiv of a beefed up 3470, or somewhat slightly lower than 3650,

    certain requirements have to be met in order to get true effectiveness out of the cards.

    cdawall wasn't going to use hybrid-sli for the performance boost, he wanted the power savings.
