Well, other than very limited DX11 titles right, what is it 1 out so far. But spending around 175 vs 275 he saves cash, can do SLi for now as he is propably waiting for Nvidias Fermi before deciding on what to buy in DX11 hardware and then there is the performance. In most cases it will be on par to slightly better than the single 5850.
