for today's CPU's I cant help but wonder how much bottleneck is created by 4 high end GPU's. Sounds way too expensive. Might as well wait for the 300 series cards and just 2X SLI.

Quad SLI is also really expensive, the board plus all the GPU's, easily over one grand.

http://www.guru3d.com/article/geforc...gaming-test/13 is an article that demonstrates how absurd it is.

First of all, you cannot Quad SLI GTX 260s, only Tri SLI...

The only way to Quad SLI Nvidia cards would be to use a dual GPU card, such as the 9800 GX2 or the GTX 295.

Tri SLI GTX 260s are amazing though, and if you already have the third GTX 260, then getting a new motherboard to support the Tri SLI is definitely worth it.

What 780i are you going to go for? I love my Asus 780i Striker II. Although It has a rather large vdroop, I have never had any problems with it. It has also got my E8600 to 4.5Ghz with ease.

XFX 780i with an eVGA BIOS. Best nForce board combo ever. (I've been looking for ways to see if my 750i from XFX can have the 750i BIOS from eVGA as well, but still no joy. I know that it's been done before with the 780i though.)

I thought the only board capable of quad sli (with 4 cards) is the EVGA Classified 4-way SLI (which would be awesome to get)

I know there are plenty of boards that accept quad crossfire (i.e. bloodrage) but quad sli seems a pick trickier to obtain (and afford) with 4 GPUS

Certain Asus p6t boards can quad sli as well.
