i already have an asus sli motherboard, but i have the chance of exchanging it with a nForce4 ultra motherboard (both asus). what should i do.

i can keep the the sli motherboard, with 2 6600GTs on it, or i can get a non-SLI motherboard with an ATI x850XT. I am totally confused cause i can't find any clear answer on this on the web.

Are you really searcing for an aswer on the web?
The answer is in your mind. Don't spend much since prices reduce constantly.

You can make a "reduction" and earn money.
"Hi I have a pentium 4 3000 and I want to degrate it to Pentium 1 200"


no no no. i won't have to spend any extra cash. i can exchange it for free with a friend of mine!

Agree with Ionian -- Keep the SLI.  I'm not using both slots now... Just one PCIe 6600 card.  I'm waiting for prices to come down.  I'm a cheapskate when it comes to games 'cause I don't get a lot of time to play them.  On call every couple of weeks for the job and I have two young girls like like to help daddy play....  I'll get Doom3 when Doom4 comes out!!!

Also, one might assume I am a Star Wars fan... Looking forward to KotOR II.

i am still not 100% convised about the performance of SLI cards, maybe when prices will further go down i might consider adopting it, since will require a change of my motherboard

if i was buying a new system now, i whouldn't go for SLI. The two GPUs will need more power to work, and I should by a good PSU. So, considering the price of a good PSU and of 2 GPUs, it's almost the same price as buying a normal system with a high level graphic card.

but since you already have an SLI system, just stick with it and no bother changing it.
