    playing with a down grade idea selling my x1900xt at least this hour I am. i keep changing my mind but if I do keep it one of these bad boy will be my back up. The rest will go on ebay and I think I will make a few bucks on them.

    two ultras in SLI would be faster than any of the singles, but SLI on those cards was kinda pooey.

    Keep one of the SM3.0 cards, i'd say the 7600GT because it would run cooler and use less power.

    if you're going sli i would stick with the 7600gt's, they work better than the ultras

    X1900XT is better than all those cards, even if they are in crossfire or SLI.

    I am confused.Do already have an x1900xt? and if so why would you want to get rid of that and keep one of the other lower end cards?

    Hes stupid? He thinks two 7600GTs are better than a X1900XT :shadedshu

    EDIT: Isn't it common sense? Everyone else already shunned you.

    no hes doesn't but remember this is tkpenalty who is a weasel and never has anything nice to say. Two 7600gt might come close to a single x1900xt 256 unoverclocked and might beat a x1950pro but not a 6800ultra not even in sli
