Been waiting for a Tom's review for ages now.

The 9800GX2 has won the crown, but I'm still not convinced. Its way to expensive for what it is.

Lets see if drivers improve, particularly drivers that will allow good QuadFire scalability.

So pay another £120 for a 9800GX2, for more performance that doesn't match the price difference. I was suprised with the Crysis result, 25 odd FPS on an ultra beaten by the GX2's 45ish - that makes the game easily playable, as long as they sort out the AA drivers, and get the drivers a bit more stable and gain what performance they can.
