Could there be any truth to this? If so could someone with a psu larger than 1000 w use 4x (240 volt psu with approx 1600 watts are available)?
First of all, the 15amp limit on PSUs is only limited to PSUs with multiple rails, and even then, they usually go above that. There will be no quad-sli for NVidia because they just don't know how to implement it. For the 7950GX2 and the 9800GX2, it wasn't true quad-sli, it was nested SLI. The two cards worked together, but the 4 GPUs were paired. The power requirements will never hold back a company as big as NVidia from making video cards as power hungry as the GTX280.

I really don't get what is the big deal with 4x SLI. nVidia never said they gonna do it nor is it even in future plans because it is not needed. Having 4 PCI-E slots on a mobo limits it's support of PCI devices, making it highly one sided (gaming it is). Not so many ATI mobos have 4 PCI-E slots when ATI support CF of 4 cards. If nVidia wanted to do 4 way SLI they'd do it. Only cause ATI have QuadFire available doesn't mean nVidia should get one as well just for the sake of having it.

It will work fine. You just can't do crossfire unless you are a 1337 hax0r.

^^^^ Yes It will work fine with A SINGLE CARD. And that does include 3870x2 or 4870x2.

Well, I'm using a Radeon HD3850 on an M2N-SLI Deluxe, so I can tell you that it works. I wouldn't expect to CrossFire them though.

Cool, thanks for the answers... I guess I am not totally screwed if Nvidia's card is not as good as ATI's....

It doesn't really matter cause texture fill rate and memory bandwidth are just formulas. (thats why they go up with you overclock the card) I'm not sure what they are but i'm sure several people on here do.
