That's how I have mine setup, yes. Use the Dual Link DVI, as it has less input lag than HDMI.

You could do surround, but would need to turn settings down a few notches, and not use AA in some more demanding titles, the Vram will be easily exceeded at 3x 1080p resolution, other than that, 2 480's are great performers in almost any situation for the price they are at now.

Hello guys! I have long thinking about upgrading my ASUS GTX 480 watercooled, but looking at reviews and benchmarks on SLI @ 480 vs GTX 680 Single ... I have no doubt the extraordinary performance of these beasts together (beyond the power consumption).
So I decided to put together this beastly in SLI watercooled.
The 2nd card will be an EVGA GTX 480 (PN 015-P3-1480-TR) with a XSPC full cover block... affects something that not the are the same cards? from what I saw in the reviews on google, not.
What do you guys think?
