Just 2 weeks now for the X2, so you could wait and see if the cards drop in price..

There we go...

in most games the HD 3870X2 would perform like one HD 3870 unless its an AMD Game like... (idk honestly)

Most games are suited for nVidia cards, so forget the HD 3870X2

Welps I got the 3870 x2 instead. I got a great deal on it and it'll also give me some good bench #'s.
