It's an upper mid range video card. With a single one of those you are looking at mid to high graphics settings, depending on monitor size and resolution. Two of them in SLI mode would allow you to run high settings assuming you aren't running a huge monitor (over 22 inches)

You really want one of these:

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16814261099

say i got this and another SLi supported card, would there be a problem? or do they have to be the same card?


im planning on using one of these for a bit if i make this decision on this video card.

With SLI, there is a theoretically possible configuration known as Asynchronious SLI, which uses 2 different cards. It never, ever, ever works right. So while it is theoretically possible, I would say you are better off ignoring that potential configuration and either running no SLI, or running two identical cards.
