GX2, I am guessing it performs better than an SLI setup, meaning you don't have to wait for months after a game is released for it to take advantage of the X2?
I have 19 days left to step up . Anyone think an 8800GTS 512 vanilla is a reasonable step up from my GT SC? It's almost $100 more than what I paid. Really, I just don't see that much of a performance increase from reviews.

No I would keep the card and wait. Plus you don't need more power except for Crysis.

My internal debate is whether to buy another 8800GTS 640 for SLI, or wait until something like the X2, or wait longer for the next gen. It drives me nuts not being able to max out Crysis (but then again I probably need an intervention)

My sense tells me to wait for the next generation, but I hate to have to replace my full coverage waterblock- especially when I have another GPU block here that could go on another 8800gts
