the 3 way looks so good
and the 2 way will be folded sticking out on weird angle etc.

I may order a new 2 way if I can't cut 3 way, but would be easier for me if I can just cut the one that I have

those the are bridges gigabtye gives you... they are well fugly!

evga not only great products they look great too, find an evga 2 way bridge, u can get a hard one that just has the sli logo and a small evga logo on a black bridge. can get it in either hard or flexible but i would measure youir spacing if you go hard since u will have to order it and make sure its the right size. the flexible ones are well flexible so u can use them on different applictions or mobo's

I always wondered if you could get 3 GTX460's and cut one of these 3 way SLI bridges in half so you can run 3 way GTX 460 SLI? Cut down the middle though, not off the bottom.

OP, tin snips...

No, you can't cut the bridge in half and magically tri SLI 460s (Im going to say that was a joke and not a serious thought). Also, no on tin snips to cut the bridge- that would be a mess. The dremel or other rotary tool is going to be the best bet.

i acculy put some real thought into his idea, and come to the concusion the drivers/cards even though bridged would not work. i mean you can technicly run sli with no problems without a bridge, i did it for 2 weeks with my GTX 260's while i was away from home with my rig and got the new card.
