Look at the price difference

EDIT: When you SLI some ultra's, the x850XT PE gets beaten :P

Also you better be ready to pony up some cash for a SLI setup. the performance to cost ratio does not justify doing an SLI setup.

yes, sli is expensive, i dont think its really a thing any1 should consider yet. unless uve got the money n want to show off.

i would say IMO the best card out is the 68U... i havent heard a lot of good from the x series.. the x850 probly performs a bit better but at a huge cost diff
