It would be interesting to see a review done now with 9800GX2 quad SLI and the I7 at high frequencies. Use a lower resolution like 1280 x 1024 and see what kind of scaling the cards actually have. They probably won't stutter because of the lower memory requirements, but won't be bottlenecked as much by the cpu.
Something I have thought about doing as I still have 9800GX2 cards. But the question that bugs me is does anyone care anymore?
