If I was worrying about Folding I would only have 2 CPU's per card, and would probably just go for plenty of single slots GTS450's.
Don't need CUDA, don't use it.
Doesn't ATi have something similar so not a really good argument.
PhysX is dead.
Perhaps I should have said 3D Surround, and 3D Vision if you want. I know of no other single nVidia GPU that can run 3 monitors.
I generally don't game in 3 monitors except in titles that have very low VRAM usage such as games like Devil May Cry 4, Supreme Commander 2, and The Sims 3. I can't play in FPS either with multi-monitors competitively so I stick to my center monitor with is 120 Hz. I generally get way better performance than any review I have ever read. When you know your system, you can fine tune it way better than a guy has for however long he has the cards for a review does.
In DevilMayCry 4 with all the eyecandy I am generally about 150~250 fps @ 5760 x 1080, 16xCSAA, and Very High for example.
Crysis for example which is close to the VRAM wall hits right about 50 FPS, dipping every so often when I hit the vram wall down to the 20s and back up again, all on max settings and 5760x1080, and I like playing Crysis at that resolution to make wall papers.
I use CUDA for BOINC and I am also learning CUDA programming language myself. So its a perk to me. Just because you don't use it, doesn't mean its not a feature.
You said you felt sorry for us, which is stupid thing to say. Nothing to feel sorry about, the cards destroy most setups performance wise. The only people you should feel sorry for are those who got a bum card that has to be RMAed.Edited by RagingCain - 5/20/11 at 6:33pm
