it looks good, but the benefit achieved in nowhere near 100%. its closer to 30%. in other words, its the biggest waste of money EVER

Biggest watse of money ever?


I could think of alot better ways to waste money...

but when you have a 16 x 12 res and you want AF and AA turned up and all the goodies I wouldnt really call it a waste of money...

Try doing that with a single 7900 GTX in Oblivion........


Im sure your x1900xt Averages 40+ fps in oblivion with evreything turned on, on 1280 X 1024......anything higher and your not going to be having much fun

Sure its not the smartest Idea, but when you have someone with such high resolutions it really really kicks in.


Multi GPUs has its place, but its not for evreyone. Give it time to mature.....
