Wait, is this really true? I've never head of this before.

The GENE-Z has two PCIe slots running at x8/x8 for SLI, so why couldn't you run two GTX 590s for quad SLI or two HD6990s for Quadfire?

I think you're getting a little ahead of yourself... what are your goals and what is your budget?

goal: run the autodesk Building design suite 2012 on max settings @ 60+ fps. on a dual montior setup. (single monitor atm)

budget for a card atm is $400.00 +/-10%

my point exactly... the 2win is 2 cards (which you have to run in sli to enable the second card)

Are you just saying that SLI'd GTX 460 2Wins wouldn't work on the GENE-Z, or that quad SLI with any dual GPU card won't work?

The GTX 590 has a built in NF200 chip, so I don't see why two of them wouldn't work on a GENE-Z in quad SLI mode.

Haha the MARS II is actually about $1500 wink.gif

For a $400 Budget I'd suggest GTX 560 Ti in SLI or Radeon HD 6950s in Crossfire. If you want to stick with a single card go with a GTX 580.

Im not saying anything one way or the other... Im asking if it will work or not.

im asking if x2 pci-e slots + 2 dual gpu cards= quadfire/quad sli... more specifically on this board.
