    They may lose money sometimes, but it is almost inconceiveable that they would go under. They still make alot of money and they are too embedded into the GPU world to just go away. I am a huge ATI fanboy (who is running Nvidia cards, LOL) and I am also glad to see them finally get a leg up. I will say one thing, this ATI/NVIDIA war has been awesome for the consumer!

    Yup prices have dropped on the new ati cards as well, x1900xt's available for 450 now. Also sli is only worth it if you play mainly at high resolutions, like 1600 by 1200 and up with quality settings. Or if it's cheaper than the top of the line cards and outperform them well enough to get them.

    SLI with anything more than 6800GS cards is a waste of money. THe CPU bottleneck is too great with the 7800 series cards and you need to spend ALOT of money on the cards and a serious CPU to ease the bottleneck enough to see the full advantages. The X1900XT is a monster of a card and it is just unneeded to get two.
