so anyone thinking of upgrading their 8800GTS 512 or Ultras, or whatever they have, should wait a few months.

Doesnt matter, until ATI gets their act together, nvidia is just going to drag their feet as long as possible until they actually have to give us something better.

Edit: this will also be my last dual card setup. Its not worth the headaches.

The awesomeness of SLI is just hard to turn away from. The though of having two of these monsters in my pc is really hard to look away from.

And yeah, I plan on pickin up a x38 soon. What one are you lookin at nos?
