lolz. indeedy. A friend of mine swears by his. He is considering combining two for a 1gb Xfire setup later on when games get a bit more demanding (at higher rez)

Its actually a MUCH cheaper option - getting 2x512 cards than 1 dual GPU 1gbcard - even including the fact you *may* need a new mobo with two(or more) PCIe slots in it

@gandiva - yes, as D333 mentions - PCIe and PCI are indeed different. Basically PCIe slots can utilise more power allowing for decreased latencies in processing, supporting higher transfer rates etc
