The Lightnings were designed for LN runs. They got a 480 up to 1.5GHz.

Ok if you got the Quad Sli 590 bundle, is any program/game REALLY going to use over 6GB of VRAM? I mean sure Quad Sli with 580's and having 12GB of VRAM sounds nice, but is all that really necessary? If it is then ok, but that just seems like a lot to me. Of course I'm sitting at 2GB with my SLi 450's soo

as MrTOOSHORT mentioned, VRAM on Vidcards in SLI or XFire gets mirrored not added. Quad SLI 590's only use 1.5GB of VRAM, not 6. In order to max out games with triple monitors and high AA
you will need more than 1.5GB. You can use 1.5GB cards if you turn AA way down.Edited by Draygonn - 3/26/11 at 6:29pm
