I rather have one GTS 512MB than this video card. It is cheaper and it beats it in some cases.

But thats just me.....

i already have the gts 512, but i would get this ati card if i never bought this.
i will step up to the new nvidia card if its worth it or try selling this gts and getting this ati card.

more reviews of HD 3870 x2. It has definitely met its match with the 8800 Ultra:

AMD's Radeon HD 3870 X2 launched, benchmarked and back in the race - Engadget

PC Perspective - Asus AMD Radeon HD 3870 X2 - AMD R680 Dual GPU Arrives

R680 Has Landed: ATI Radeon HD 3870 X2 - HotHardware

EDIT:

im in trouble! I dont see any HD 3870 x2 that come with a molex to 8-pin connectors! I only have 6-pin! What do i do now???
