    alright hopefully someone might be able to help me.

    I can't quite find a comparison chart with this.

    so I have a secondary computer which runs 2 geforce 7600gt's in SLI, and an ATI 4650 happened to fall on my lap after a class action lawsuit fell through pertaining to an old radeon 9800 I had.

    anyway I know the 4650 is faster than a single 7600 gt but I was wondering if I would get any gain for swapping the sli set for the single 4650. I should include that my sli setup is very old, and it runs at 8X instead of 16X.

    lol good point. it's for my mame cab, and the parts are not very easily accessable/swappable. I guess I'll try it.

    SLI rarely (if ever) gets double the performance of a single card, but the 4650's not that much better than a 7600GT... so yeah, you'll have to try and find out.
