In my ignorant attempt to save money, I didn't get a motherboard that can support 2 video cards. I went the "medium" performance route and it backfired.

Does anyone have a single video card recommendation or do I have to go back out there and buy another PC?

What's your budget, what games will you play, and what resolution is your monitor?

So you are sending the 2 video cards back for a single card? I'm confused at what you actually did.

Are you building a PC from scratch? If so, what did you buy?

I haven't purchased any new video cards yet. My budget will have to increase now. But what video cards are reputable now? EVGA and ATI still good?

no specifics given = can't go wrong with a gtx titan.

2 for optimum performance.
PC hardware doesn't need to match console hardware in price when PC gamers save literal thousands from the software they buy.

yeah, if you cant count then something like SLI might be out of your comfort zone.
Religion is like circumcision. If you wait until someone is 21 to tell them about it, they probably won't be interested.

Why are you trying to get two video cards if you're trying to save money?
