Initially I was all for going 9800gtx but in the end I just couldn't justify the extra cost.
I agree if all you get is a 5%-10% gain. I also sure as heck don't want to put 3 video cards in my rig. Not that there's anything wrong with that if you're into that stuff, but you've got to admit its just a way to boost sales for Nvidia. The multiple cards just don't scale up enough to warrant me wanting to put 3 of them in a rig. Two maybe, if I had a 30" monitor would be as far as I'd want to go.
