I say stick with one 3870x2. Because, games should become more optimized for the dual cores, with the gx2 coming out. So you should see a huge performance bump soon. (I think..)

well if ive decided that iud pick up one 8800gts if i do go that way, and wait for the 4*** series, i may just send the cash to wildside thru paypal and mail my card away to get his. its the best performence for the price, and 300+ a 7950gt seems fair. plus il only need to oc the card and here i come to break vdubs record.
