This is a big step up though for your rig veedub... Before you had 2 8800 gts g92's.. which are nice but are like mid end cards if ya think about it, even if they perform close to the gtx. But these 9800gx2's are TOP OF THE LINE, lol. Your rig is gonna be crazy.

Bahahahahahahahahahahahaha. Dude. That's going in my signature. That's priceless.

Also, that's what I'm going to shoot for. Got 4 cores, got 4gigs of killer RAM, at some point I'll go with 2x 9800GX2's I'm sure.

I guess the 9800gx2's would need a xeon 6 core to not be bottlenecked.

What quad are you talking about? Maybe an extreme edition quad, but not the 9XXX quads. You couldn't even get to that with watercooling. ****, you'd need big time FSB room to reach that if it didn't have an unlocked multiplier. And the heat would be intense.

You'd have to run like, a heck of thermoelectric peltier system or dry ice.
