Ok, so, i'm still waiting on the parts, still looking for a video card. I'm NOT looking to max crysis, i don't even play it. I AM looking to max COD4, BF2142 and Fear however. Would a 9800gx2, 9800gtx or other (evga nvidia)?... be better to accomplish this? I not getting a gtx280 as of right now, but might trade-up to it or just get it someday. Thanks!

Thanks, glad I got the tx-2 then.

You said multi-gpus like the 9800gx2 doesnt play well with games, would I encounter any problems with the games I play? Would it be worth it over the 9800gtx. These are the 2 cards im deciding between.

The 9800gx2 would perform like a little worse than 9800gtx in games that don't support SLI

I don't recommend a 9800gx2 period, I'd say stick with your 9800gtx, its not worth it
