Awesome. I've actually seen this beast in a few systems about 2 weeks ago already. They perform amazingly.
Is it possible to use the HDMI and both DVI connections at the same time? I.e. connect three monitors?

the 295 consumes less power, and is more quiet than the 4870x2, however, all things considered, i think the 4870x2 holds the top. two 295 would completly overpower 2 4870x2 (mostly because games dont use all 4 cores). but one 4870x2 is cheaper, and performs better.
on the other hand nvidia has physx and cuda, which could play a role in the games of 09...
Both the ATI and Nvidia cards have there advantages. Youd say that spending a bit more now and going with the Nvid card is a bit more future proof, While the ATI card is the best bag for the $ at the moment going off strictly price.

basically, thats the way i see it der, nvidia got the extreme top performance (when you sli them), but the best bang in the "normal" high end is still with ati.
i dont know how well the extra features nvidia has will play out, since physx has been rather useless so far, but this could turn out to be a bit like the x800 series sm 3.0 fiasco (though, on a smaller scale).
