Don't worry about using SLI/Crossfire. One top-end card should do you for now... a mid-range card would do you for now as well.

If you are looking forward to the next gen coming out, I wouldn't splurge too big on a card right now. The new ones are due out in November, so you'd just be turning around and selling your current card at a loss.

Be sure to go with a full size case, though. The new cards are huge. The Armor case Bean mentioned will be fine... it's even the one with the side window.
