    Ah, good perspective, I hadn't thought of it like that. Maybe I don't need an SLI/Crossfire board after all.

    However, it won't be the same cost - if a new (matching) card costs £100 then I'm not going to get that for a second hand one...


    I've got it about the chipsets now. I hadn't realised that ATI previously made chipsets. But ASUS/Gigabyte/whoever sell both SLI and Crossfire boards, so they have the technology for either chipset. So nVidia have some hold on them to stop them releasing boards that do both? That sucks.

    The AM2 rig I was going to build had a 7900GT VIVO lined up for it, now I'm starting to look at ATI cards in case I do want a dual-graphics system. Just not finding the ATI alternatives that attractive - noisy, hot, massive...

    ARGH - Hurry up NVIDIA 590 reviews!

    Similar cost then But typically graphics cards don't always drop that much in price - or when they do they don't last long before being phased out. Instead they tend to stop selling them and introduce a different version, which messes up SLI/Crossfire a little.
