Speaking of moneysaving, I discovered that you can SLI any two cards of the same type (e.g., MSI GTX 470 + EVGA GTX 470, etc.). So I was excited to find a Galaxy card that is a clone of my PNY 470 on Newegg for only 190$. I ordered it with overnight shipping. I expect it to arrive Friday, just in time for the weekend. I'm so excited. I've already downloaded the SLI enhancement patch and the newest drivers, all prepared to get everything set up with the new PSU I'm buying tomorrow. I've never done SLI before— I know it doesn't work in every single game— but I know it works in the wants I want to use it for, so this saves me a heap of money compared to upgrading to a single, more powerful card.

Right now, I can run BF3 on all settings high (textures at Ultra), 1920x1080, @ 60 fps... I'm hoping I can set more settings to Ultra, with the second one, even if I can't max it out or whatever.
