Core 2 Duo and SLI, a match made in heaven?
announced its SLI technology has made its way into enthusiast Core 2 Duo based systems from leading system builders
. SLI equipped Core 2 Duo systems are available from gaming system manufacturers such as Alienware, Falcon Northwest and Voodoo PC. Other manufacturers include ABS, Alternate, Amax/Ajump, Atelco, Carri, Casper, CyberPower, Everest, Evesham, FDC, HCL Infosystems, Hyrican, iBuyPower, Infinity, Komplete, Kraftway, Levi, Maingear, Mesh, Monarch, Next, NTT, Paradigit, PC Club, Polywell, Quiet PC, Sahara Computers, Scan, SHG, Starmaster, Systemax, Tarox, Topnotch, Velocity Micro, Vicious PC, Vigor Gaming, Vobis and many more.
Lacking from the list of Core 2 Duo SLI system manufacturers is Dell,
which hasn’t officially announced Core 2 Duo XPS systems yet
. Since Intel’s 975X Express chipset is only compatible with ATI’s CrossFire dual graphics card configuration, Intel users seeking Core 2 Duo and SLI compatibility are forced to use NVIDIA chipsets. NVIDIA offers a variety of Core 2 Duo compatible SLI chipsets including the nForce 4 SLI X16 and nForce 590 SLI chipsets.
With NVIDIA hyping Quad SLI a lot lately its strange to not see NVIDIA tout Quad SLI equipped Core 2 Duo systems, though this could possibly be because system manufacturers are
still waiting for WHQL certified Quad SLI drivers

Faster GPUs of course, but quad systems that cost so much?
Everyone knows SLU/Crossfire is just a 3dFX of today, its a bandaid till something amazing comes around.
Lets hope Dx10 is something like that..
