I doubt it will be that much cause who would buy it? Also justify that card in SLI.

You also need to look at who has the best and most stable drivers. A card can be super powerful, but if the drivers suck, then so does the card.

might as well get 2 7800GTX 256s in SLI and blow one of those out of the water, for just a little more. if you want to WASTE your money.

Havoc you is silly dog.
