It's only 'commonly accepted' by you. The 2900XT isn't 'slow as hell', and the lastest reviews show that it is competitive with a single 8800GTS.
And if you say 'commonly accepted', it's also 'commonly accepted' that lack or performance is caused by immature drivers, just like with the 8800's when they were first introduced.
Yes, I agree that SLI-ed 8800GTS's are faster than any single card solution right now, and thus they get my vote.
Again, blanket statements about the lack of performance of the R600 core without proof. The only card that has been thoroughly tested is the 2900XT 512MB, and that one stacks up reasonably well against the 8800GTS (which is directly competes against).
Show me a recent review of the 1GB version...
