These 9600's OC very well, easily 30%, could possibly get more if I volt modded. Dollar for dollar it has more performance than most if not all available cards.

Im building 2 more rigs in the very near future, 1 crossfire and another nvidia machine. When I step my cards up to the 260's Ill run 1 260 in each machine, new build and current rig. But just for kicks and giggles, Ill sli them on my current rig and see what kind of results I get.
As for the xfire rig, I might go with comething cheaper for the time being 3870's perhaps, then get 4870's when the 5xxx series come out, basically when the price is right .
**** you got a lot of money lying around :freak:

Actually, I have a lot of parts lying around. And when I step up to the 260's they'll wind up cost me quite a bit less than they would new from newegg and such. I think theyll wind up costing me like $160 each shipped. When youve got DVD/cd drives, RAM, CPU's, HDD's laying around it makes it easier to build new rigs as all you really need is Mobos' and cases. And thats where ebay comes in, I got 2 mobos for $120 shipped and one came with a thermalright xp120 cpu cooler and a panaflo 120mm fan Im getting new cases for christmas so... they're free.

So all in all it'll wind up costing me $440 for 2 rigs and 2 pretty good video cards.

I read that the 295's are not going to be anything special though. They are just a 280 beefed up a little. Is that true?
