As long as you choose a board with 3 pci-e slots on it.

Oh hay, look at this.

Yes, you have to register within 30 days for both stepup and the lifetime warranty. Tisk tisk.

They increased the step-up for the GX2 to 120 days, so you're in luck from that perspective. I don't think moving from a 8800GTS to crossfire'd 3780s would be a big enough increase to put up with the crossfire headaches. I'll wait for the 4xxx series or wait for G200 (Or whatever they are calling it now)
