The cpu *is* fine, but cpu-bottlenecking (in the technical sense) becomes common with any high-end xfire or sli setup. Even with i7's. It just depends on the test, and the settings at which you run that test.
Anyways, as you can see ... I ordered a couple 480's, came in just under $800 with shipping and tax. Pretty stoked on this deal. Thanks for the heads up!
Looks like the cheap ones are all gone though ...Edited by brettjv - 6/8/10 at 10:27pm
