    9800GTX+ in SLi is considerably faster.:) The question is, will your PSU be able to do it?

    Hmm, it really depends. You'll get about the same performance, and yeah the 9800GTX's will save you a little cash on the order, but they'll raise your electric bill faster :laugh: If you're living with your parents or don't have to pay for electricity go with the 9800s, if you do have to pay for it go with the 280.

    Yeah, that should handle it, I know that the GX2 needs something close to 600W to operate, so you should be fine with that beast.

    sure 2*9800gtx+ , but you need more psu , it is more fast than 9800gx2 , and more fast than gtx280
