BF2 gives me double frame rates in SLI, avg 120fps. But Call of Duty, a much much older game, doesn't really give me any improvement.And if you're sittin on a single 6800GT or Ultra, and thinkin about sellin it for a GTx, get an SLI mobo and another card, cheaper and better.Anyways, as new games come out that are better made for the SLI systems, more performance will be seen. The GTx imo is not worth the buy as single. Dual 6800GTs out perform and in the long run performance will be awesome on the newer games.
