Even an 8800 won't be bottlenecked by 8X bandwidth.
You'll only start to see a real performance decrease at 4X bandwidth or below.

In theory that might be true, but going by the benches i got in SLI last night, this board is less than impressive. As far as the 780i, i just uploaded my invoice today so i'm waiting for them to approve me, then i have to package up the 680i and mail that off to them. I'm going to go ahead and pack up the 680 since its dead anyway and have it ready to ship so once i get approved i can send it off on my way home from work. Once its shipped, and they recieve it, i have 2 day shipping paid for to get the 780i. So hopefully i'll have it next week if all the stars align and i find the secret crystal key. But more realistically it'll be after new years.

Not from the benchmarks i've seen, the 256mb maybe, but the 512mb takes up 175+ watts.

At higher resolutions, it makes a pretty good difference.

especially with the holidays there will be a lot of shipping stuff back and people shipping gifts out to try and get them there before christmas, and before the new years.

but yeah, ultra if you don't wanna mess around with a sli board, 2 gt's if you want that little bit more performance.

also how is it that 2 gt's are as much as an ultra? last i checked, which was a few seconds ago, an ultra was 660 and 2 gt's were around 450 (256mb) / 550 (512mb)
