Honestly, buying two 8800's is not spending money wisely. You won't notice a difference between 80FPS and 120. Buy a second one later on down the road when the prices decrease and get some other hardware, like where is the sound card, speakers? You could get a much better monitor.
Also with water cooling, i think you'll be able to achieve better over clocking results then 3GHz.

i'd only consider a raptor if you are big into photoshop otherwise the price ratio/performance ratio makes no sence. Since there is virtually no improvement for games. Even if your big into photoshop, it really doesn't deliver a big enough improvment in performance to really suggest them. All in all, if you looking into saving literlly a couple seconds go and pay the extra 100$ or so for the same amount of space just a "faster drive". I don't really recommend a raptor, but if you have no budget, might as well go for it. If you do have a budget, are you keeping the price of the OS and monitor in mind?
