I spent a hell of a lot of time looking for a benchmark with a GTX 260 in SLI but I can find one for my life. T_T

And the 4870X2 is already figured into the price. Your really talking about a $70 difference here, but if you want to nickle and dime, You could go with a 260GTX SLI.
As far as I know, having two cards doesn't mean double the performance.

I'd stick with the 4870x2.

Seems about right.
1 U.S. dollar = 1.17910068 Canadian dollars

If you were looking at the Alienware site, were the prices listed in Canadian dollars? Plus, overall I think that rig would be WAY better than the Alienware.

And looking at The Newegg Canadian site, they don't sell OEM Operating Systems. You would have to go with a Retail, or order the OEM disk off of Tigerdirect
