?? But isn't 2 GX2's = to 4 cards, and 3 GTX's = to 3 cards, lol. That's kinda self explanatory right?

yeah, but the 9800gtxs are clocked at higher speeds, and can be overclocked even higher. Its not a huge difference, but there can be one, and it can swing either way.


Neither one is really better, it just depends on what your mobo can handle and your budget.


Also, i dont know for sure, but im not sure skulltrail supports tri sli.

Aight, looks like GX2's. Do I need 4 waterblocks, or just 2?
post #16 of 27
yeah, Quad SLI is better. Tri-SLI has some driver issues that the Quad SLI doesn't have. And heck, four GPUs is indeed better than three.

Also, why need dual CPUs? With tri- or quad-SLI, you probably will be gaming at extreme resolutions. There is nothing a decently overclocked Quad core CPU can't handle.

You'll need a special waterblock made for the 9800gx2. the PCB setup is special for that.

Lol, idk. Why do people spend $100,000+ on show cars? Just to say they have it. I'm a guy you know, it's in my blood. And e-penis too!!

To Arjy: Aight thanks. I'll have to look into it.
