3 Way Or 4 Way Sli Cr A Waste Of Effort And Time

Hi all I've just given up on a tr-sli 570 build, I just didn't realise all the bother, trouble locating the correct parts and not to mention the expense invloved, so I've settled with x2 Gigabyte n570's factory oc on a Sabertooth 990fx board in a HAF 932 case.

Firstly for more than 2 cards you need a proper case (another £150) that supports more than 3 cards, I would have had to cut away apart of my lower HAF case to make room for the 3rd, then the Sabertooth 990fx MB, if you have 3 cards they aren't evenly spaced out, so I ordered a specialist Sli 3 way bridge and they sent the wrong part (Advance Tec).

Then you also need at least an 1100w PSU (£200) Proper Sli Bridge (£25) if they send the correct item ofc.

It's just too much hassle!

Then there's the fact many games don't even support Sli, let alone 3 or 4 way!

Why do people even bother???

Your opinions welcome.

My current build;

Phenom II x6 1100T oc 3.75ghz ActicXtreme air cooler.
8GB DDR3 1866
Sabertooth 990fx MB
Gigabyte n570 factory oc in Sli (they arrive tues) using x2 470 Zotac Amps atm.
1000w PSU in a HAF 932 case.
5.5 TB HDD total space. BD & DVD Drives.
