Default Your opinion

At this time Is it worth building an SLI system?? I can get 2 7800 GT's for $600USD and spend almost $600USD for 1 7800GTX. What should I do??

Hmm, how about save up that money, and get someone an extra special christmas gift

I would wait for the GS also if you must absolutely have a SLI setup.
My current specs:
i7 920
Biostar TPower x58
3x2GB g.skill
XFI GTX260 Black Edition
640 WD Caviar Black

I am trying to make a educated guess, and I say within 3 months. It will be cheaper than what you have on your list and you can unlock the pipelines on it and OC it to the speed of GTX.

its going to be 250 if its more then you could just get a 7800GT if it less then that wuold be good cause the 6800GS are about 50-100 dollars below the 6800GT so the 7800GS would most likley be 50-100 dollars less so 200-250 im guessing
