These aren't 8800's.

SLi without a bridge only has acceptable scaling with video cards <8600 GTS
I love Corsair

That's what I'm saying. Try doing non-bridge SLI with GTX 4xx for example and you'll see a noticeable drop in performance.

Should be great, two 560's in SLI are the new 460's in SLI (which were AMAZING!) just make sure your board has x2 pci2.0 slots.

Well at least you could have told me that instead of screaming at me! 8800 GTS in sli i dont see a big drop but i dont have anything newer...

from the 260.xx drivers up... you require a SLI bridge...

just a little note...

and actually... i ran 2x480 with and without a birdge....

the performance was almost the same!!!

and my motherboard is only running both PCI-E 2.0 slots at 8x... lol

but anyways.......

Get A SLI Bridge anyway (5xx range requires one for SLI)

Lol, sorry if you got offended. Most people report bad frame rates while using high-end graphics card without an SLI bridge, and I guess it's really horrible in Tri-way or Quad SLI. Some people dont notice any difference but generally it's recommended to use a bridge.
