Excellent Game for HARDCORE GAMERS.

I play MW2 online sometimes (maybe 1/2 per week) and have played various FPS over the years, am I good enough by your standards or will I get abuse if I buy the game and try to play it?

You can hack the ini files to work with 2-card SLI, but it doesn't get any faster with 3-way SLI or Quad SLI. On the ATI side of things, I'm not sure how well it responds to CrossFire.
