Not everyone has problems like you.

The testers did not say anything about GX2 "hiccups" during testing.

The benchmarks clearly show that in every game but Bioshock the GX2 is at or slightly lower than the performence of the GTX280, but for at least a 100 USD Less.

Don't take my word for it, go look at the benchmark thread.

Ive looked at the threads. I have also talked to MANY people using SLI and gx2's playing AoC and that game just has temper tantrums when using SLI. Also, with the gx2, you cant use multiple monitors if you have both cards enabled. At this point i'm just gonna hold out and see what the 4870 does. Would be nice to go back to an intel board.
