    What performance increase should I expect by adding another 8800GTS 512 to my rig?
    I took advantage of a killer deal over in Hot Deals, and was just wanting to know what I can expect from those in the know here.

    your rig is similar to mine and i have 2 8800gts 512 cards i peronally gained about 40-50% increase its noticeable but hard to point i think it says it best with an extra 3000 points in 3dmark 06 on average

    the only advice i would give is make sure you set up ur nvidia profile right then ull be laughin :)

    i see the best sli of 8800 serous is two 8800 gts , it can give you a performance like gtx 260 or more

    i'm glad you're getting good performance out of it, i just ordered myself an 8800gts 512 to compliment the other and give me sli as well. hoping for a similar performance increase. I also ordered another 2 gigs of mem, giving me 4 gigs of ddr2 1150 yay!!1
