I also run two R600's at the moment. I bought them back in the fall, before G92 and RV670, on special for around 300$ each, which was good value back then. I have to say that they put out very nice framerates on everything except Crysis, where putting that money in NV's directly could've netted me maybe 10-25% higher frames. Still, I do not regret the price I paid for the performance I am getting.

E6600 'B2' (from Dec '06) @ 500 * 7 w/ Scythe ASM
4 x 1GB Crucial Ballistix Tracer PC2-8500 * DDR2-1000 5-5-5-5-10 (POS 1-sided sticks... getting 2 x 2GB Muskin Redline soon)
2 x Sapphire HD2900Pro 512MB (512-bit) flashed to BBA XT's. @ 850/900 1.25v vBIOS(stock coolers running 80-100% fanspeed during load)
2 x WD RE2 250GB's in RAID-0
Windows MCE 2K5 (32-bit, obviously)

Running 1920 x 1200 I get 65 FPS avg. all med on the Crysis Bench tool, 33 avg. all high.

I play all high except for shaders (med) for online play and get 30+ FPS constantly (I'd guess in the 40's avg.)

Still, if this were 2 G80 GTXs, I could run 1920 x 1200 all high during multi without a hitch.
