    SLi ??? need help

    heyy i have a XFX 6800 GT 256MB if I bought another one would i be able to run it SLi or do they have to be SLi Specific cards? because i didnt go with the SLi card it was like a 100 bucks more at the time and i wasnt considering it but now that alot of the new games are requiring alot from the card i was wondering if i could just get a card just like it and it would be SLi my MOBO is SLi so i am wondering what i would have to do. buy 2 new cards? or just buy a duplicate of my other one?

    SLi requires the same identical card. This Thread that was mine has some talk about SLi that might be useful...

    You might wanna wait a bit

    If 6800GT PCIe drops in price to say $200 sometime till the end of the year, go for it.

    Still be sure games you play, will play, actually benefit from SLI. One more reason for waiting.
