What are the pros and cons for buying a ATI HD 2900, EVEN though I have a SLI board? Need to know this so I know this is a great investment

Pro's: - Great card for DX9 games.

Con's: - Eats power for breakfast, lots of it.

- 1st gen. DX10 card (like the 8800) that would likely struggle to run proper future DX10 games in high res/detail.

- No CF on SLI boards, pairing 2x X2900 would mean a little fortune in electricity bills.
