Since i was planning of having 2 6800GTs in the future and now realise that DX10 is coming out, should i just buy 1 6800GT and use it until the DX10 cards come out and use the money i saved for buying another 6800GT to buy a DX10 card?

I love how 6 months ago people were recommending SLI so you could DOUBLE YOUR PERFORMANCE and add another card in the future...yet now that we are actually 6 months in the future that doesn't look like a very attractive option now does it?

Some people take things way too out of context, DX10 is a long way away
