Default New PC

AMD 4400+
OCZ Platinum 2gigs
A8N32-SLI Deluxe
Seasonic S12-600W PSU
Creative X-Fi Platinum
Western Digi SataII 250g

My question is should I get 2 6800GS' or 1 GTX, im not looking at whats futureproof I would like more performance. (ill probably update my vid card around Nov 06)

According to this review:

it looks like the GSs in SLI stack up ok with the GTs in SLI and the 512MB GTX which are way more expensive. I live in canada and GTs and GTXs dont come cheap. 2GS would be cheaper than 1 gtx at the lowest clock by like 50 dollars.

I play at 1280x1000 cause my monitor cant support any higher.

The other think is sshould I get 2 SATAII 120Gig drives and go with RAID0 or 1 SATAII drive 250GIG (the one I wrote above). Is the performance increase worth it??

Thanks in Advance
