    I want to make sure this system will allow me to play crysis at a reasonable level. (among other things, i would never spend this much for a single game)

    I figure you guys know your shit.
    Any feedback is appreciated.

    Dual 4870s will cost about the same, and way outperform the 9800GX2

    Would have to switch to a Crossfire mobo, though

    And, if you can wait, the 4870X2 is coming soon
