ok so what if i get a SLI to stay ahead of the game, and just start out with one 6800. So that way when the new games come out with new engine im ahead of the curve...also how far ahead are these new engines suppossed to be coming out?

I'm thinkin Spring of 07 is when UT2k7 will come out. Building a comp for that game would be a waste of time in my opinion until you see the final specs for it. SLI is a waste of money right now. Can you get a SLI compatible mobo and still run a PCI-E card on it?
