Which sounded louder?
3850 Xfire looks seriously tempting in place of a 8800GT...
The cooling fan on the ATI Radeon 3870 is obviously bigger than the Radeon HD 3850, and it is also louder. The acoustics on the Radeon 3850 is 31dBA compared to 34dBA on the Radeon HD 3870.

Yeah hard not to cut and paste most of the middle since the games remained the same... Added Call of Duty 4 this time around, which I think is a nice addition to the benchmarks being run. Now I'm already benchmarking the GeForce 8800 GT 256MB card... so get ready for some more copy/paste love.

Note: the 2 red SAS ready ports of the Promise controller
(SAS Serial attached SCSI - backward compatible with SATA ... now you play with 15k 2.5/3.5 speed demons.)
But as for the case you will need a Super Tower:
Like the Xaser VI VG4000 series or Armor+ VH6000 series both have steel and aluminium variants.
10 expansion slots (3 more that a standard motherboard)
2 for each 3870 = 8 slots
plus 2 for USB/firewire/audio plates etc.
now we only need longer motherboards so can fit the X-FI and aegia card somewhere ... LOL
