Uh, I'd say go with the 9800GTX in SLI. That way if you ever changed your mind, you could pull one card out. I don't think the 9800GX2 is very worthy in general.

a friend told me that by going with the 9800GX2 i have a single card there fore being more stable than the 9800GXT+ in SLI another thing with the 9800GX2 can you run dual monitor and also with Nvidia's new technology of CUDA and PHYSX wich one would be better or is that something that the card it self would or will bring

you can only run GX2 with dual monitor if you disable the internal SLI. so by doing that you basically will be stuck with two seperate 9800GTs.

Since you are even considering 9800GX2, instead spending that much money on that card, grab GTX 260 instead.

why would you even consider that card when GTX 260 and 280 are out?

Depends.....check pricing.............I have a EVGA 9800 GTX+ that I've OC'd quite a bit (see my sig) and it runs neck-in-neck w/ my friends 260, at $80 less.:D

Two of these babys in SLI would be smokin'.

Oh yeah.....(nana2)
