Using crysis alone as a benchmark, especially for SLI, is a terrible idea. Crysis is notorious for poor crossfire scaling, and Crysis was made with nvidia cards and their strenths stronly in mind. It is even in there intro. The 9600gt is the equivalent to a 8800gt, which beats out the 3870 most of the time. The performance is close, especially with 512mb V ram GDDR4 version. I would go for the 9600gt because it still performs better and has a lot of room to OC.
