i think im going to get a 9800GTX SSC and just upgrade to sli in the future and then even tri sli after that (long time from now)
and imo the GX2 is SOOO worth the extra $200 considering its 40% ish better as the last graph of bench marks says.
Yup. That exact benchmark site made me buy 9800GTX.
I was going to get the GX2 as well, but I decided on 9800GTX. You'll like it, if you get it. I love my cards.
I'm also eligible to step up in ~90 Days with eVGA's step up program, another great factor in my choice.

(Then again, the 4870X2 is coming too)
Btw, benchmarks =/= real world performance
I'd say Crysis is a very valid Benchmark. In fact, it is
the only benchmark that even means "real world performance."
