All, right sounds good to me too, but i am goin to get the 32 edition. Now i have to decide whether to get two 6800GS or one 7800GT.

GS PCI-E = 12 pipelines each, effectively 24. One 7800=24 pipelines with the possibility of adding on more in the future. Get the 7800.

Go with the Premium, you aren't getting that much more for the extra money and the Dual X16 PCI-E's doesnt perform that much better than 2 GPU's in 8x as of yet. By the time you'll want another card or the Dual x16 get better, newer and faster hardware will be out. Save the extra $80 and put it toward the second card and you'll get great performance regardless
