So theres a couple questions after i recieved my (2x) Vapor Tri-X graphics cards

1. The backplate, can i get one for it? is it the same as the other sapphire 280x cards?

.....1a. Would it affect cooling? I have them in crossfire, so heat dissipation out the sides or back would be sweet

2. I gave my gf my Dual-X for christmas... so down the road (after a couple years..) i might want to change to water cooling my 280x's just for kicks, can i throw my vapor Tri-X cooler on hers?

Look around you can get a back plate, it does not improve cooling though, it makes GPU look just a bit better and that's all.

Not at all, other than they're both GPUs.

Here-> http://www.ebay.com/sch/i.html?_odkw=tri+x+280x+backplate&_from=R40&_osacat=0&_from=R40&_trksid=p2045573.m570.l1313.TR0.TRC0.H0&_nkw=280x+backplate&_sacat=0 contact those sellers and find out if it will fix your card; as they hasn't specified that in their description, I think.
