Cool The 4x4(x4) thread

Ok, well the GX2's are paid for, now i have to send my GTS's back and then the waiting begins. I'm going to use this thread as a build log. I'll be picking up a 750w Coolermaster psu to feed the beasts.

4 cores? check
4 gpus? check
4gb mem? check

Empty bank account? check.

LOL... but before you pack the stuff, put a Screenshot of the current GTS at suicidal run mode and daily mode, to show the exact difference (around 10k I assume )

SLI Gx2s, good god, what do you think your system will score in 3dmark06 once you got all your "4x4x4" in it?

Edit
Thats going to have some 4x4 power right there, compared to what mine will be, mines like a taurus......

Ya, the q6600 will be somewhat of a bottleneck, but then again, once nehalem comes out i'll get an instant video upgrade just by removing the bottleneck at the processor
