    As if 1 graphics card isn't expensive enough, 3 graphics cards is going to need some serious power supply.

    Technology is flying at the moment. The 45nm CPU's are overclocking beyond belief! 4.5ghz on AIR cooling iirc. :blink

    However, I don't drool over the 3x GPU setup, I never even ventured into twin SLI because most games never got round to supporting it..

    This benefits the Bench marking community far more than it benefits the gaming community..

    a guy I know has a set up, running 4 8800gtx cards :blink I don't personally see the point at the mo since not many games support 2 cards let alone 3 or 4.

    one of the directors at work bought 2 of those dual cored gfx cards about 1 year and a half ago, had to get permission from nvidia to buy them on their own due to the power requirements. the drivers for them were pretty poor however the 3-way SLI looks to be benchmarking quite well :)
