[Joseph Mastantuono] "I also noticed in Walter Biscardi's great blog that he's not running a dual GPU setup, (at the cost of some realtime functions obv.) I don't like the idea of down grading to the GeForce 120, and I would like to still be able to run Apple Color with a ATI gfx card in there."

As Luke has already chimed in here, you do require the nVidia cards to run Resolve. I had an ATI 4870 in my machine and pulled it out for the Quadro 4800.

I will say Resolve runs incredibly well with just the one GPU in there. That has been a pleasant surprise for me since we only have the one slot available for GPU in our current setup.

When we open our new facility in a few months, I will have a dedicated machine for Resolve and that machine will have the dual GPUs, at least I'm expecting it to. Just depends on how many other slots are needed for other things. But it's good to know that Resolve is a very responsive application even with the one GPU.
