Like others have said you can spend like 2,000$ less and still get some fairly great and similar performance CPU speed wise and every day usage. As far as the SLI 9800GX2 that is way over kill. One 4870 should work miracles for a decent build without having to worry too much about the future. Because the 4870 is future proof.

Besides if you spend like 3,000$ on a build like that at the moment. You will be really ****ed when the value cuts in half a year from now.
