Look in the upper right corner of your screen. See the "Search" button? Use it.



Don't mean to be rude, but there are several topics on this.

Just for you to know, that topic has been posted b4 and multiple times. Just a heads up. Pretty cool tho, it can reach up to 32XAA on Timeshift.

Actually the Quad SLI setup won't cost $3000, the 7900GTX is prices around $499 and you only need two of these cards as there are dual GPU's on each card so technically it's a Quad GPU setup with two video cards.

I don't think the 7900GTX will be dual core... link to your source? I was under the impression it was basicly an amped-up 90nm 7800GTX.

Those are card made specifically for Dell, it's 2 GPUs on 2 boards per PCI-E bus

It'sl be just like the Asus 512MB 7800GT but 2x512MB G70 GTX GPU per card.

So take a $800 price tag for 2 256MB GT's add a little more money and you're looking at nearly $2500 in GPU cost alone for that system

you dont need a dual core video card to reach Quad SLi!
GIGABYTE 8N SLi Quad Royal is the answer! crappy OC but 4 GPUs!

But to do it like Dell did you need to plunk down nearly $2800-$3000 to get what they did with the 512MB GTX

actualy its better then dell... the dell machine uses 4 slots of x8 PCI-Express... the GIGABYTE mobo uses 2 full x16 PCI-Express and 2 x8 PCI-Express...
but! dells machine is much more easy to use because they got perfect match between the mobo drivers and the vga drivers... but still this is Overclock.net and here we do everything the hard way (AKA the better way!)... with some conf we can make the mobo and cards work prefect! and 4 7800GTX 512MB GeForces aint cheap
