Calm down, I am not "we" all think that multi GPU is always better than a single. Here in the UK an 8800GTX costs about £230 upwards. Bearing in mind that the 9 series is likley to be released soon the prices of the 8 series will have to come down a bit, making it unattractive to buy at this time.

I dont think people were ignoring everything you were saying, perhaps just counting on crossfire to mature over time a little thats all. Calm down!

Yes I'm in the UK. ordered the cards from Novatech. Should be at home when I get home from work - ready to be installed - hopefully.

Overclockersuk were also doing a good deal on them - but Novatech's free postage made them cheaper overall.

One big point some have come to us with .... do you have room on your motherboard for 2 dual slot video cards ? Make sure a dual will fit in both slots !

Note: 2900XT > 3850.
View THW VGA chart in overall FPS.
3870 vs 2900XT = smaller margin than 2900XT vs 3850 + $100 cheaper
2900XT CF almost equal in overall FPS to 8800GTX + $150-250 cheaper

Good for budget performance rigs.
Otherwise, i'd be looking at G92 SLI after the GF9 series cuts prices on GF8 series.
