This is exactly what has been going on through the entire thread, and it's not the first time either.
You come to us for advice..you just spell out what you want to get, and then ask us if it is okay, and we have to explain why it isn't. That's the world upside down.. If you would just say 'hey guys, I have an X amount of money, what should I buy?' Then this would be over in 2-3 posts, not 2-3 pages.

Every time someone goes against Weiman's sig I feel like they should be bludgeoned for a few minutes in the head to feel the headache I feel when I realize someone really IS that dense.

because SLI works in most games at the moment Crysis , Company Of Heroes, Flight Simulator X, Conan Adventures, World Of Warcraft, Enenmy Territory Quake Wars, the list goes on actually.

And for little money a SLI setup of Dual 8800 GT's is for most SLI users plenty for their FPS/RTS games.

The possibillity of so many CFX systems is also greater than imagined ATi's new HD 4800 series have amuch better way of CF via internal Hubs instead of via the old way:

Hub --> Ringbus --> CF Bridge <-- Ringbus <-- Hub

new way =

Hub --> CF Bridge <-- Hub

and the new X2 is even nicer it is like so:

Hub <--> Hub

the old X2 wasn't so greatfull because the Bride chip hindered it's performance alo especially in CFX modes.

Hub --> Ringbus --> CF Bridge --> PLC CF Bridge Chip <-- CF Bridge <-- Ringbus <-- Hub

which is along as very slow downed process, which causes rendering delays, thus lesser speed.

Anyways I could go on this for hours it's just to give you an Idea that one day ATi's CFX will become as welknown as well used as NV's SLI.
