Yes I have seen that list but that doesnt really mean anything, they just havent tested the Msi's cards in crosffire. I would have to disagree with you on the whole Msi thing since I have been using them from video cards to motherboards for years and its actually the only brand I trust never had a problem.
I am also not sure where your looking exactly and what games they are using in comparison but the performance is HUGE. You can run games at 4aa and 16AF for the most amazing graphics while still getting 100+ fps in 1600x1200. Every CF review I look at shows 50+ fps gain.
I know DX10 Cards are coming and if anything im looking forward to ati's r600 but thats still a long ways away, your not going to see them until end of 1Q 2007 in the least, not to mention that there will not be a huge variety of games to take on the new dx engine right away, so waiting a few months after they are released will not be a big deal either. Vista is coming out sooner but Vista doesnt require you to run a dx10 card with it nor will having one give you any kind of extra performance.
After doing some more thinking I will probably hang on until the end of August when the new x1950's come out and just Crossfire those.....
Thanx for your advice tho, its appriciated.
