Yes, the 8800 GTX is an amazing card, it kills everything in DX9 but it's yet to be tested in its true nature, DX10 that is.

As far as drivers go? That's one of the "other" main reasons why I don't buy one yet, I'm gonna wait, just like nVidia is waiting for Vista to come out and finally the DX10 drivers will come out as well.

I find it funny that GX2 quad SLi uses less power than a single 8800GTX and is capable of better performance. Hows that for a swift kick in the gut?

It's not a swift kick in the gut..
GX2 Quad SLi aren't DX10 Hardware Compatible.

That changes everything how? DX10 games aren't close to completion yet, and there will probably be DX9 sub-versions of those games anyway.

This is why I bought my 8800gtx. I wanted to upgrade now, and the supposed advantages dx10 made getting a x1900cf card just not seem like such a great idea. I managed to sell my x1900xtx to help pay for the 8800 tho

I'm thinking Nvidia has probably done their homework with unified shading, possibly even looking at the xbox 360's R500 to get an idea of what Ati is brewing with unified shaders. Time will tell who's boss. It may also be interesting to see whether Ati has improved it's crossfire system when compared to SLI. Nvidia owns ALOT of Sli related patents from when they aquired 3DFX, and surely has claimed more, so Ati has to find a way to make crossfire work that is excluded from Nvidia's patents, this may not be easy.

This is the reason the x1900cf used a dongle instead of a hardware bridge. Nvidia intimidated them out of it. The dongle adds noticeable interference to the signal.

I've never heard of Quad SLI coming close to touching X1950XTX Crossfire, let alone an 8800GTX. One 7950GX2 performs a bit worse than a 8800GTS, but two doesn't work any wear near as well as 8800GTS SLI.
