hard to say with current drivers, how do you mean better, overall performance? price performance?

Well with my Single 9800GX2 it equals SLI 8800GTX's, i have heard that the 9800GTX performs rather badly so it's a toughy.

Results are quite mixed based on all reviews that I read. In general, with current drivers, 9800GTX SLI is slightly better than GX2. You may wait to see how it works when the updated driver is out.

I would say that SLI 9800GTX would be a bit better than 1 9800GX2.

Well haven't had much in the way of testing due to my mobo dying (my fault). I'll be running plenty of tests asap. My initial run of Crysis was actually faster with a single GX2 than my SLI GTX's. But that was with older crappier drivers. 3DMark06 was identical...

Nah never tested Quad SLI yet....both my GX2's are in a box under a desk not being used. It's depressing.

I saw Maxishines results and was pretty damn impressed. There has been a new driver released since his video so things could be even better now.
