Who is gonna buy his used g92 at full price? If it's the same performance as the 9800GX2 then just buy another g92 and save yourself the extra money.

Who ever said full price? And also if you read the thread, this would make it so he doesn't have to change motherboards which would save him $100.

A new 8800GTS now $280+ and then $100 for the mobo is $380, versus $569+. I'd go with the 780i board and another GTS. You get a newer mobo and the same graphic performance for $200 less, and you can sell the Ultras when a new gpu worth buying comes out.

Yes. The GT200 (next nVidia chip) is due out in September.

I doubt it, Nvidia are not exactly in a hurry to pump out new cards. They are playing us for fools at the moment and renaming current technology to sell us.

I would go for the GX2 also, if it means RMA'ing a board just to go SLI i wouldn't bother.

If you can't afford the GX2 why not get the HD3870 X2? It is a great GPU, performs just a slight bit under the GX2 and is a hell of a lot cheaper.

But as they stated, a 550W most probably will not cut it. The GX2 and the X2 both use a fair bit of power. You most probably looking for at least the Corsair 620W before you consider a dual card or SLI.

Even if some people say it will be sufficient, i wouldn't risk hardware of that price just because of someones word.
