That's not my point. Driving multi montior setups require raw power and as you point out, generous amounts of VRAM per card (1.5BG or more). For standard HD res, single card solutions are a far better choice, IMO of course. But then again if bench results and crazy high FPS are what matter most, have at it.

22Â° to 25Â° & 70Â° & 76Â°?
You are correct: Room temp will raise operating temps. Hitting operating temps of ~80c are not really a problem if your room temps approach 30c or higher. But if your operating temps are that high with room temps in the low 20s, you've got a problem.Edited by *AcidBath* - 7/19/11 at 12:44pm
