    Surprised/Amazed

    anyone have about 800 bucks to blow?

    oh yeah, not to mention....
    one of only 8 mobos that it will work with,
    some spare time to deal with driver issues....
    now why did they build this thing?

    ...ASUS has listened to some of the arguments against SLI, and is poised to deliver an answer—the EN7800GT Dual Limited Edition. ASUS's designers built an SLI graphics subsystem on a single board, using two 7800GT GPUs. Slated to ship in early November for a whopping $800, ASUS is planning on shipping only 2,000 of these boards....

    for the price it's not that huge of a improvement, i'd hold off on it. i mean the 7800 alone is powerful *shrugs*

    The Radeon X1800 XT is more powerful than the 7800 series, but I don't think your pc can dual-wield two X1800 XTs.

    Anyway, I'd be happy with just one 7800 GT.
    Biostar XE T5

    Radeon 5850 @ 866/1254MHZ
    Intel X25-M in RAID 0
    WD Caviar Black 2TB in RAID 0

    Waste of time and money.

    Crossfire is nice, but I would think that TWO GT 7800 will still outperform the X1800 XT w/t Crossfire.

    Dammit, if only I could be rich...
