I never doubt the info you put out. Most of us appreciate the time and money you divulge to help keep the information flowing. I just think you should leave it to the fact and not put down a good option for a build just because it's not your personal favorite option.
Tri-SLI, as you know, can only be done with old, but good cards, or the 9800GTX because that's how nVidia did it. It's launch was aimed at those people with chipsets that can run Tri-SLI. However it does perform well on it's own if you want to spend the extra 40 bucks.
Quad SLI and a single GX2 have there places and are great cards.
Ultimately it comes down to the fact we can't make the choice for the OP. Buy whatever you want. If you are like most people on here you are just going to change it in the next 3 months any way. If you buy something equal to or better than a 8800GTS, SLI or not, you wont be unhappy until you get that itch for more 3DMarks or great frame rates your eyes wont even see usually.
