So yeah, I don't think I'll have to worry about adding a second GPU for some time.

Oddly enough, when I was planning it out, I was considering running 2 x 5770's in XFire but with those two, I'd still have to spend more on a more powerful psu (which I probably should have done anyway) and the 5870 still outperforms them. The only single cards out there that outperform it are the 5970 and the new GTX480 (which is about $100 more) and only marginally at that.

Overall, I'd say I'm very happy with the machine and haven't had any problems whatsoever except for trying to use the Asus utilities to overclock the cpu. Mind you, I've never had a system that I could o.c. before, so this'll be a learning experience for me.
