same boat as you but less on the killing oneself why i went for EVGA cos of their step up.. hopefully can upgrade to something even more meaty with a modest upgrade price

its all about them 9900 benchmarks now and how does it stand to all previous graphics cards. Also i see that the GTS has dropped in price already by the time your thinking about another performance boost the GTS will be even cheaper, sli'ing 2x GTS aint gonna be bad at all. Remember theres only 1 game that truly tests it we got more then enough power till game developers start dishing out more HD games (which takes time).

more then happy with the G92 GTS right now
