I have some questions regarding a video card upgrade I have been considering. Currently I have a 730x H2C I7-965 with two 9800GT's in SLI. When I purchased the system I went for a better processor and got "lower level" video cards. I have been researching GTX cards and the GTX 275 in SLI seemed like a nice but more affordable upgrade for me. Specifically I was looking at an XFX GTX 275 which apparently just recently was pulled from newegg (discontinued?) and an EVGA equivalent. Right now I am not necessarily looking for a overclocked version of the card but will consider something up to $250/card. I have a couple of questions regarding this upgrade:

1. First do you think this will be a decent boost in performance over the 9800 GT's?

2. If the GTX 275 is a good choice, does any one have any specific experience with this card with the 730x? Any specific card/manufacturer recommendations?

4. Are there other options to consider in the Nvidia line that would be wiser like the GTX 260?

Thanks

Mark

Hey there. You can try looking at this post viewtopic.php?f=4&t=3055
and this post viewtopic.php?f=4&t=3047 there is some good info there and I don't think it matters if you have a 630i or not.
