I take umbrage at the two posts you put up...just because they wish to do what they do...does not mean we have to stoop to their level...

Personally I love the competition..it keeps innovation high and prices for us consumers low... So lets hope AMD's 6900 series will get nvidia to drop low enough that we dont have the continual calls of "PHYSX!!!! F@H!!!" as the whole justification of paying nvidia prices...

Also hope that AMD can take their momentum to innovate more and keep nvidia honest...
Dont mind the troll

OP can run Nvidia surround vision on there GTX 295 anyway, Plus if op has two of them in SLI then they are using Quad SLI.. 4gpu's will still cut it for most things.
The only real upgrade i can think is maybe two gtx 580s in SLI or wait until the GTX 590 comes out.
6870 CF would prob give a small boost in fps but still quad sli GTX 295s are a very nice system. Nice Gpus, Have you thought about joining our F@H Team?

Actually, with 3 monitors, I can not seem to get Quad Sli running, only tri sli and even then it says it is not theoptimum setup. Leads me to NVIDIA Sli page but still no help.

hmm very weird, i was to believe that you could use quad sli with nvidia surround vision, i was unaware that it would lock you at tri sli, what drivers are you running?

EVE isn't supported by that is it, it needs to be in windowed mode and stretched accross, thus rendering sli/crossfire pretty useless? I just skimmed across that in some other post, I also play a bit of eve.. so correct me if I'm wrong.
