This thing is massive.

I can't wait till prices drop and add a second one.

Now I just gotta wait for a G0 Quad, and order a motherboard and my PC will be DONE.

Rather get a second one, why not wait til when the 9800 GTX comes out, sell your current 8800 and BOOM! Twice the power of current 8800 ultras as we are told...
