yes we do..lol

1 more question...with the system i have...do ya'll think it is even necessary for the second card?

Just say i'm running at a resolution of 1920x1080 on a 23 inch monitor...would the cost of a second card be equal to the performance gain I would see...or is it even worth it?

thanks for your help....I have been back and forth now a 100 times... trying to decide if a second card would be worth it or not!!

im a very avid gamer.....i play COD MW2/ COD WAW /BFBC2 ME2.

i was thinking of getting a better cooling system and OCing a little bit with the money i was going to spend on the card.....if the second card really isn't going to improve performance that much.

Like i said back and forth...lol!!!
