ultra has volt mods, and silicon reworks..

it uses less power, and runs cooler. and you can also get more memory and core clocks out of it. the GPU's are also hand selected

its just like SLi you need a crossfire ready motherboard w/ 2,3, or 4 PCI-e x16 slots

and i was gonna go crossfire....

but i had some financial crap just the other day.. and i had to sell off some stuff.. but i'm getting the most of my money back and then some next friday

so i was wondering if i should get a gtx, ultra, or 2 gt's... also gonna be picking up a q6600 a week or two later after my graphics card... so imma be stuck on a laptop probably for the next 3 weeks

i thought the max a mobo could have is 2 PCI X 16 slots?

And mgcook said that he would go crossfire on a p5k deluxe...doesnt that have only 1 pci express X 16 slot?
