I know you get what you pay for however what pisses me off is there is generally such a pathetic gap in performance between high end and mid range that it's just stupid. What ever, I will pass on it, I don't care if it can make my toast.
Then don't. Who's forcing you to SLI? Who's forcing you to use every bell and whistle? I finished Crysis on my 8800GTX at 1680x1050, Max DX9 details, no AA/16xAF. The only place the game slowed down was the final battle, for which I took the resolution down to 1440x900. I mean enough with this crap about having to pay loads of money to enjoy a game. A mate plays games with a 1600 Pro, another plays on a X1800XT. Enough about not having a good experience with a 9800GX2 and now with a SINGLE GTX280. I don't buy it, neither does anyone else I believe...
