wow SLI really does look like crap compared to the features of Crossfire
yeah its looking that way...

I wonder if there are less headaches involved as well

Lol, that just means that they've rigged their game to work well on an nVidia card, that means even though a card is an ATi equivalent, they'll make it perform less on purpose so more people buy their cards

you may want to get a diffrent heatsink rather then the one that comes with the q6600, and if you do that you could just get this one: Newegg.com - Intel Core 2 Quad Q6600 Kentsfield 2.4GHz 2 x 4MB L2 Cache LGA 775 Quad-Core Processor - CPUs / Processors
