It's very very close in lower resolution gaming...buuuut...up there around 19x12. 25x16 it really pulls away (as cpu limitation becomes less and less of a factor)

Just click next and take a look through the SLI benchmarks.

Sell your 7950GX2, and get a G80. Quad SLI is not worth it. And the G80 has newer technologies then the 7950GX2, like you said DX10.
