Well, single card solutions are always recommended for guaranteed compatibility and less headache, so I would get 1 4870.

Too much money and again it's a dual gpu like the 9800 GX2 which is why I am not getting it


Don't you think a 4870 is enough for my resolution?

^sure but the 4870x2 is releasing on the 12, also, there should be a price drop on the 4870's like by 2 weeks after the 4870x2's release, so u should probably wait.

Honestly I'm not expecting it to. With the HD 3870X2, there was no HD 3870 price drop until 4 series came out.
