i think sli is a waste to, who wants to but old cards. there so hard to sell when you want to upgrade. but then again guys dont forget me and baron are in australia, there's like noone with money here, its makes thing really had to sell. in america theres way more ppl into gaming.

At the moment I don't think I'll go with SLI but If the GTX280 performs VERY well in SLI I might consider it.

I'm pretty sure if you get the GTX 280 you won't need another one.....

some of the 8800GTS cards (as well as some others) have slightly dropped in the price this week.(8800GTS 512mb for $159.99) Newegg.com - ECS N8800GTS-512MX GeForce 8800GTS (G92) 512MB 256-bit GDDR3 PCI Express 2.0 x16 HDCP Ready SLI Supported Video Card - Desktop Graphics / Video Cards

I wonder if this is a beginning trend that will happen when the new cards come out.

I almost want to start my build right now...but I don't want the prices to drop RIGHT after I do !
