Wait. It gained 5 FPS with the addition of another card? That's terrible. But then again so did tri sli. Just goes to show that's a poor example. SLI is only a few FPS behind CF.
every frame counts

the point you were trying to make was that dual gtx280s are better then dual 4870x2s which is not true

But that is one example, and a terrible one... You like crysis, well what does crysis say? Don't forget the cost of the cards here.

I said they are about equal and much cheaper. Please go back and read my post.

Quad SLI and quad CF have never worked properly, so I am just confused about the decision. He's not alone in it either.

I would have gotten a different mobo if I went ATI obviously.

I'd like to challenge you when you get your 4870's. Me and my lowly Q6600.

I guess in that manner of fps per price gtx280 is the way to go but the 4870x2s are awsome

price aside 4870x2 cfx are better then gtx280 sli

Slightly skewed, it seems you have taken this water cooling thread and turned it into your own crusade of ATI CFX vs NVidia SLI. Leave it alone and get back on topic!

Edit: + rep for a nice system!

yes it helps.. I would only get a gpu score of around 28k with my qx9650 and with i7 its close to 32k.
