Hiya scriptton,

I have an old 8800gts in my parts draw next to me right now, I don't know how you feel about them, but it used to run very hot even at stock speeds for me, the thing died in the end. But my personal advice would be to be very careful if you are going to overclock 1, of course if you are running 2 in SLI then the heat will be increased even further. I don't know how much of a performance gain you would get, but with my older Nvidia's I always ran into instability problems with any overclocking I did on them.

It may not be worth it, I don't want you to cook your cards.

Paul.
