Does Crossfire have any real advantages? My X1800XT has the capabilities, and I know you need a specific motherboard, too, but is it worth all that money? What kind of improvement(s) will it make?

Crossfire is the second generation of dual card interface from ATI, it allows you to run two gfx cards cooperativley for increased performance, it allows you to run games at high settings at resolutions above what you would normally be able to do so.

There is no advantage to the crossfire boards on terms of the performance gained from the board it just allows you to use crossfire, so if you got the motherboard and a master card edition of the x1800XT then you could set that up in crossfire. Having a second gfx card is something you should maybe consider in the future but for most people as with SLI crossfire is not really neccesary for most.
