Yes, they will be the top of the range GeForce card.

Great! I guess I will get a Q9450, nVidia 780i, and do a 3-way SLI with the 9800GX2..Think that will fit in an antec 900?

..lol...I wish..that'd be like 2gs

F*ck me. Are you going all out and trying to break the 3DMark world record or what? I do think that an Antec 900 would be a bit small for that actually as it's only mid tower case. It would be very tight and cramped in there. I recommend a full tower case like the Cooler master Stacker.

Lol..Imma have to work my butt off this summer to pull out a rig like that. It would be pretty cool. but it's overkill. I think one of them will be fine. I do want the 780i as I heard EVGA covers all overclocking problems you might get. I really like the antec 900 tho...looks so cool. But there are a lot of cases around. I can't wait till I get to start picking my parts for real.

You can get the 9600GT for $180 now Maybe spend $10 extra? They're almost as good as the 8800GT, well worth it.

The HD 3870 performs slightly better.
