I agree
And if you can get a HD 4870, you can drop the Nvidia motherboard, I think this is a better selection:

actually that's a pretty good deal, and he can't xfire on that board, he has to SLi if he wants a two video card solution with that combo...

also, two 9600GTs will be pretty good, they can actually beat a 4870 (if that board doesn't have Sli limitations) and 2 9600GTs cost less than a 4870 right now...
