Yeah if you can afford it. But that's not fair because it compares two different cards. The X800 Pro is garbage which can't churn out framerates smoothly. Lets face it, right now the 6800 series owns the X800. I don't know why would anybody in their right mind would suggest an X800... sheesh... waste of money, waste of time. Now lets be fair and compare the X800 XT PE to a comparable card... like this one:

If you want my word on it.. your beloved X800 XT PE gets crushed by that one.

If you want value, go with the BFG FX5900, not the 9800 Pro.

I think I saw on Nvidias website that there is a new duel GPU technology out. And it uses PCI Express.

Yeah it is SLI, nVIDIA is the only one that has it . It uses two PCI express cards to make double the performance.
