Hi, I'm upgrading a machine to provide better performance in MS Flight Sim X. Thing is I'm not really gamer and not so up on which graphics cards are better than others...
It was a Core2Duo 2.4GHz and had 2GB ram with a pair of Nvidia 7950GT's (512MB ones) running in SLI on Windows XP
I've upgraded it to 8GB of ram and Vista 64Bit.
The problem is that with those 7950 cards it can't run Multi Monitor SLI. They need to be 8000 series minimum. The owner really wants 2 monitors running, and was switching off SLI so he could. Which of course is not the best for the graphics performance.
So my question is what 8 or 9000 series cards would give a bit more performance and be able to do that multi monitor sli? Pricing closer to the low to mid range than the outrageous end.
Or would it be better to kick out the SLI and grab a fast single card?
