  1. Dear friends would you please tell me if a SLI solution of PCX GeForce 8500GT 512MB (128-BITS) is better than a single PCX GeForce 8500GT 256MB (128-BITS) or not?

    Thanks in advance

    I don't see how it wouldn't.

    I don't see why you wouldn't just use the money and buy one single card instead. Probably would perform much better that way.

    Oh sorry :) a slight mistake actually i meant

    Dear friends would you please tell me if a SLI solution of PCX GeForce 8500GT 512MB (128-BITS) is better than a single PCX GeForce 8600GT 256MB (128-BITS) or not?

    Actually price tag for both of the alternative solutions is pretty close and i want to find out the best choice?

    Thanks.

    I go with CMH and reckon a single card would be a better bet for all sorts of reasons.

    I too agree that a single card solution would be better, but when faced with the choice of 2x 8500GT 512MB vs. 1x 8500GT 256MB, the former is obviously better. Still, a higher end single card would be even better.

    Edit: whoops :p
