Because its not true. Sli 7900 gts would own an x1900xtx. If I were to look for proof of his statement it would be impossible to find. I don't get why some people think an x1900xtx is better than 2 7900 gt's

According to benchmarks, 2 7900gts are better than x1900xtx, but not by a huge amount, and not once the resoultion gets to 1600*1200. Now these are with drivers Nvidia sais are buggy so maybe the 2 gt's will pull farther ahead in some areas, but as of now, they are better. Just not by a huge margin. Good enough for me to get 2 though..

Any one that knows anything would have known I said "proof?" because there is no proof of his statement. So don't tell me to look it up for myself.
