Just remember, taht dells sucks with shipping and everything else.

This ati deal is great if you use the best buy coupon for each of the cards then go crossfire.

And once better drivers come out...you got a prettty sweet rig there.

Crossfire does scale better than SLI does.

Single card vs single card, the 8800 GT wins.
but, crossfired 3870's will perform about on par with SLI'd 8800 GT's

I have an 8800 GT coming my way.
Though considering the board I want supports crossfire, I might even consider getting a crossfire setup.

the good thing about the new cards (G92 and RV670) is that they consume much less power than the 8800 GTS I currently have.
I believe my power supply will be able to easily handle two of either cards.

*edit*
come to think of it, if I do go ahead with that, I'll only need to get new RAM and a power supply, then I can have two complete high-end systems.
