If I can find 3 screens I'll bench it for you

I have mine, a spare for my parents system (Living at home through my film and media degree), and maybe my TV if I can emulate 1080p on it, only does 720p native. Simply to have 3x1080p for benching purposes.

How do you know how many are left in stock?

Since the first lightning showed up with GTX 275 Lightning, MSI has just been raping everybody out there in terms of non reference gpu quality and overclockability.
The 275 lightning was epic, it still rapes a lot of the newest cards in the right benchmarks.

Aah, your issue has been addressed.

One of the two sites will do a 3GB SLI review for the world to see.

Brent at HardOCP said he'd be doing SLI in a couple days with two of em. My cards come today

But I can't use both until I either get a bigger power supply or simply get the rest of my parts next week.
