Sorry I've not been around, folks; moving was a lot more trouble than anticipated, then various other bad stuff happened. I am around, just not on as much as I'd like.

Will replace with EVGA GTX 680 4GB + Backplate SLI watercooled with koolance full cover blocks.
Anyone else running GTX 680 4GB SLI and able to offer some insight into their experiences?
I'll add you to the Surround Gamers list in the original thread.
About all I can comment on with Surround and SLI is that they play together a lot better than CrossFireX and EyeFinity.

Was given a 6970 a couple of weeks ago. When I get the time, I'll check that it works but it won't become my primary system. Will serve its time in an OpenCL box.

To be fair (and I know I'm saying this in an nVidia forum) I've probably had just as many issues with nVidia as I have with AMD/ATi. For me, they're about equal. My recent woe on the nVidia front has been an accessory display - for some reason, 301.10, 301.42 and 304.79beta all have an issue where if you come out of a game, despite the desktop saying it's back to non-bezel corrected resolutions (5760x1200) it actually isn't, and everything is blurry to boot.
The only fix I found was to disable bezel corrected resolutions. Hardly ideal, but I've found myself playing without bezel correction recently.
In general, anything that involves the words "USB" and "monitors" in the same sentence is a recipe for a headache - especially when you mix in exotic setups like EyeFinity/CrossFireX/Surround/SLI. I thought about trying it briefly, but did some reading around about it... when even the manufacturers recommend not using exotic graphics setups with a USB monitor, you know you're gonna have problems.
That said, if you want to give it a try, please do and report back - if it's a success, that'll be awesome.
