  1. The Radeon card will probably give you equal or better performance in some cases than the 2 GT cards. Yes, the x1900xtx will work in any mobo with a pci-e 16x slot BUT if you want to get 2 x1900xt's and crossfire them, you cannot use an SLI board. Another thing to look should really consider getting the "plain ole" XT as opposed to the XTX. The price you will be paying for the XTX over the XT isnt worth the performance you will gain and you can easily overclock the XT to XTX speeds.
