In a game optimized for SLi performance, the two GT's will rip apart a single GTX or Ultra, and will shine especially if you game at a resolution over 1280x1024.

There really is no reason to buy a single GTX over even a single GT for twice the price. From what the reviews have said, the GT is just about on par with a GTX. Maybe just a smidge lower.

They've released a card thats about 90% as effective as a GTX for less than/equal to half the price. It just screams SLI to me.

Anyone like to recommend a good SLI mobo?

Haha yes, if they haven't already.
This card seems extremely popular. If you're looking to buy, then this is a good time to jump on board with SLi.
Make sure you have the CPU and power supply to handle it though.

One GT can keep up with a GTX pretty well....SLI will destroy it I imagine.
