    I'm using Windows 7 with a Q6700 @ 3.5GHz. 8 Gigs RAM.

    Which video card set-up is faster... ATI 5850 or nVidia 9800 GTX / SLI?

    I play WoW, Drago Age, Crysis, GTIV.

    Both are close but since your playing wow and GTA4 the HD5850 will take lead in those games for sure since wow and GTA4 don't like SLI last time i checked.

    WoW and GTA IV are very CPU dependant. But anyway i'd go for a single GPU solution, hence, HD5850.

    Besides, HD5850 for rendering + 9800GTX+/GTS250 for PhysX = WIN. As told by xbitlabs, if you get it to work, its great.
