Not a bad review, but I think there is one VERY important piece of information missing!

The Abit IP35 Pro motherboard used in this review has two physical PCIe x16 connectors, BUT what is NOT mentioned is that only ONE connector runs at 16x electrical, the second runs at 4x!

I'm not saying that it's shady or that you're picking sides or anything like that, but it seriously gimps the second card and should have definately been mentioned in the review. Other reviews that I have seen on reputable sites and enthusiast forums show that 2x 3850 in Crossfire on a motherboard supporting 2x PCIe 16x electrical/full speed perform almost identically to a single 8800 GTX.
