will post when I get my card back Monday or Tuesday. I really wish the quad would scale like it should. I am not impressed yet so I have been waiting. Another thing has me concerned as well. That the new 9900 if and when they come out, may actually have PhysX on board. Then I really need to wait before I dump cash into it. What I would like to see in this post is the advantage of Quad SLI. Have you seen it yet Mark?

I opted to wait on quad a little longer (July I will have an extra 1000 to spend on parts again)

and buy this stuff instead....

2x9800GX@ is a MAJOR waste of money!!!
The cards do not scale period.. Same old technology.

I returned mine and switched back to my trusty 8800gtx's and don't regret it one bit.

1x9800gx2, ok.

Hoping GT200 will be a quantum step much like the 8800gtx 1.5 years ago..

My $0.02 (US) which was actually more like $1250.00

Not too concerned about it at the moment. I was talked into buying the thermaltake Kandalf LCS case. I have no complaints. Other than I wish I would have went with something different. This is technically still my first build. I started in September 07 and have been going crazy with upgrades. Until I find a reason to get rid of the cooling system, it stays put. I do however plan on going with a different company altogether. I will make that decision when the time comes.
