It easily outperforms a single G92 8800GTS, it outperforms an Ultra by 20 or 30%. Its two 8800GTS's in one card.

Yes, but it is in SLI configuration. Try and older game on the card, and it'll perform just as good as one. One theoretical card will in fact be almost wasted. Maybe 50% of each card will be making the game, equalling 100% of one card, but costing double.

Err, did you not view the link to the benchmarks? I'm talking about the 9800GTX.

It can max Crysis at 1920x1200 and get like 15-20fps average (on Rogue, at least). Still doesn't beat Aquos's setup (but then again, its 3 more cards).

The 8800GT is still probably a better deal, at least until the 9800GT comes out.

This sounds stupid, but what is it? A vedeo card?

I've decided I'm going to buy it anyways. 3 things, I noticed the minimum psu is a 600W, my psu is a 620. this is the 1 I got http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16817139002 think it'll work well with it? Also think this BFC fit in a antec900 okay? 1 last thing, will this thing bottleneck my cpu? My cpu is a E6700 OC'd to 3.19GHz

That is a very good PSU, it'll handle the 9800GX2 just fine. And the E6700 is a perfect partner.
