Dhw - R520 is going to be august, if people are lucky, MAYBE late july, no way in hell june though, that was it's original release date then got pushed back.

Not only that but G70 is supposed to be late june...your statement pretty much contradicts that, but we'll all have to wait and see

If you don't mind getting used cards, some people will be selling 6800GTs and Ultras dirt cheap now so they can get a decent price tag back before the G70 hits and the new cards drop in price and they lose even more money.

i have a question... i never looked into much of anything about SLI

in order to use SLI, im asuming that you need 2 nvidia cards hooked together, on PCI-E cards, right?

or is SLI just a term used for how the Nvidia card comunicates with the PCI-E interface?

if its option 1, then i dont know why ppl would be compairing Nvida SLI to ATI's non-sli, because thats just inacturate. its like compairing a Duel Intell socket mobo, with a Single socket AMD. pluse the 2x in price would just be stupid for a lot of ppl.
