Just my 0.02 cents though....
SLI owns Crossfire, scaling is much better and i never complained about it. And Nvidia is so good with drivers release that in most cases they have SLI profile before the game is even released. I don't say that HD5870 is bad hardware but its support sucks balls making it not useable as Nvidia cards are. Simply AMD fail with CCC big time. I miss game profiles with Forceware big time where i can nicely force AA and other settings for each profile. Also Nvidia is really good in SLI Profile Update releases.

Fermi SLI 2x480 here i come!!!!
