lol. uh, yeah. theyd be good enough. it seems the driver issues with quad sli have been worked out pretty much. scaling not that jaw-dropping but i guess thats ok if you got the cash. if you are going 2 x 295 then you DEFINITELY should get a 30" monitor.
you said you weren't going to overclock your cpu?
you dont need to get two gtx295 if you dont. thats too much gpu for a stock chip (yes even a nehalem extreme). you need to put a healthy OC on it or a single 295 will pretty much tax it. 2 cards would be like, farting in the wind, as the old saying goes.
if you get two gtx295 cards, prepare in advance for your utility bill my friend. if you game more than 15 minutes a day or so. heh heh.
if you want a good monitor, get a dell. $1150 for a 30". response time kinda weak though. samsung syncmaster is about 1000 on newegg i think.
