It should be very very interesting to see how the price war goes. Its not every day us gamers get to see the most highest end gaming cards shoot it out w/ prices. Consider this... the release of the 7900 GTX was only yesterday...so yes expect prices to be a bit outragous right now....then watch it go down and down... AtI is putting there X1900XTX about 475-500 area...and we all know that the X1900XTX deffinitly brought a GUN and NOT a knife to this gun fight (espeically this time around) the 7900GTX 512 is expected to deffinitly position itself to target the same price range or even cheaper (OH BOY!) to the x1900xtx. I think this would be a very good push for alot of users to get SLI.

Think about it...SLI has been getting more and more popular over the last few years...and with the addition of Crossfire...I don't think Nvidia will allow for it to conquer. If the price is right, and it should be, then I can deffinitly see alot more people going w/ an SLI setup becuase we all know thats where the performance is at, espeically compared to ATI's crossfire which so far has been a damned good attempt at really giving SLI a run for its money.

With the 7900 refresh, I believe Nvidia will deffinilty position themselves perfectly in the market and within our systems, thus making SLI a much more realistic addition to our beloved addiction boxes, not to mention the performance WILL be there along with drivers and such.

hmmm...7900GTXs are over $100 (canadian) cheaper than the X1900XTXs at ncix.com...and the Extreme (690/1.75) edition is still $60 cheaper...

Unfortunately I think SLI is still a niche market. It's not quite mainstream yet. Give it two more years. The average gamer is vastly still a single discrete video card user. Of course ATi's Crossfire is still two years behind SLI, so nVidia is still happily ahead in market share.
