How about dual-CPU setups?
How about dual-GPU-cards with one GPU disabled (if that's possible on a 9800GX2 :?? )

Those SuperPi 1M and 3DM01SE-scores: are those for place 1 to 8 of the participants, or places 1-8 with that cpu/gpu on HWBot?

So the best chance to win is with the fastest cpu (+oc) and fastest gpu (+oc), so only for expensive hardware?
