    The Best Graphics Card (SLI)

    Hey Guys,
    I am considering an upgrade to PCIe fairly soon, and I am going to go SLI. I am aware the 6800 Ultra is the most powerful SLI card, but I do not know who makes the most powerful version of it. For the purposes of getting a rough price for this upgrade, could you please suggest the very best (money no object ) 6800 Ultra SLI on the market?

    Thanks for any help you can give,
    Xcelsion.

    XFX or Gainward 6800 Ultra 512Mb version. On the front page of Hexus. Guess that the best money can buy.

    the ati x850 is all well and good, but i think Xcelsion's gonna have a problem running that one in sli

    by the specs of the cards around it seems they are much the same, the gigabyte seems to look good as does the xfx, carefull tho, some have the core clocked 25mhz slower.

    but as hans voralburg said the xfx 512 is out soon
