Did you ever think the day would come when your bottlenecked by a quad core?

Keep in mind that i play on a 24" monitor @1920x1200 so the cpu is less of a bottleneck than someone playing on a 19".

Because when sli is enabled each gpu render half the screen. Quad sli its a fourth of the screen.

With crossfire its alternating pixels.

I've been trying to find information on the setup for 30,000 3dmark. I read it was evga with dual 8800 ultras superclocked using liquid nitrogen.
What were the cards clocked to? and why dont triple sli 8800ultras get anywhere close to that?
