Hi all. A quick question for you experts!

I bought an XFX 8800GTS a while back when it was quite new, but have recently been wondering about upgrading it.

I did a quick check and saw that my exact model is on amazon for £65, which would allow me to use both in SLI mode.

Would you recommend this over buying a newer individual card, e.g. the Radeon 4870 for £130. I'm not really that keen on spending too much.. but who knows! :)

I currently have an E6600 @ 2.7Ghz with a 600W PSU. I play games at 1600 * 1050, usually FPSers - currently UT3 and Fallout 3.

Any advice on where my cash may be best spent (if at all?) will be appreciated.

[p.s. 3rd attempt to write this... the forum seems to have a nasty habit of losing posts! {copies post just in case...} ... yes a 4th attempt indeed. Must choose sub-category - thats a pretty bad bug! ]

Thanks for the advice. I took a look around to see whether my system would be compatible (PSU, Mobo, etc)... and I've found out... its not!

I have a P5W DH Deluxe motherboard which seems to be crossfire only (Which I think is pretty poor!).

So I'll need to review my plans! Better start checking prices again.
